Dr. Francisco Alvarez
Dr. Alvarez, a native of Baytown, graduated from Texas A&M University for veterinary school. From an early age, Dr. Alvarez knew that he wanted to become veterinarian. In early 2000, Dr. Alvarez began his journey right here at Baytown Animal Hospital as a kennel technician during his high school years. He has come full circle and is now the proud owner of Baytown Animal Hospital, where his dream to help people with their pets all got started. He is committed to bring his hometown the highest quality veterinary care possible. Dr. Alvarez and family share their home with three dogs. He enjoys spending time with his family, watching Aggie football, hiking and fishing.
Dr. Wendi Schumacher
Dr. Schumacher graduated from University of Missouri School of Veterinary Medicine in 2005. Following graduation she moved to Lubbock, Texas where she started practicing and met her husband, Casey.
Together they have traveled the country working and finally settled in Houston in 2015. Dr. Schumacher has a special interest in small animal internal medicine, soft tissue surgery, ultrasound, and dentistry.
Dr. Schumacher became a permanent part of our Baytown Animal Hospital Family in September 2021 after stepping in and doing some much needed relief work in 2020. Dr. Schumacher’s Drive and passion to serve the patients and the owners made it VERY easy to identify that we needed and wanted her as a part of our family fulltime!
Dr. Schumacher, Casey and their son Colton are all avid scuba divers and routinely go on dive trips to various tropical locations. She currently shares her home with 5 dogs, 2 cats and a variety of other small pets that her son Colton has conned her into.
