Dr. Brotze Retirement Announcement

                Forty-five years ago, 1970, I moved to New Braunfels and joined Creek View Veterinary Clinic. During these 45 years I have been blessed by working with three great veterinarians, Dr. Larry Waldrip, Dr. Michael Doherty, and Dr. James Rierson.

                Through the years, I have developed long-term relationships with many of you and I want to thank you for being part of an incredible journey. Working with both large and small animal clients has resulted in my having an interesting and rewarding career that I would not change. A lot of memories and stories that I will continue to relive with my family and friends.

                Beginning July 1, 2015, I will be reducing my work hours to 1 day per week and 1 Saturday a month.

                With my limited schedule, we are eagerly looking forward to Dr. Kristen DeCola joining our staff of veterinarians. Dr. DeCola has advanced training in both emergency and critical care which will help us to continue to provide optimum care in these areas. Dr. DeCola graduated from Texas A&M School of Veterinary Medicine in 2008. She is a Gonzales native and moved to New Braunfels 7 years ago. Dr. DeCola has been the chief veterinarian at the Pet Emergency Clinic in New Braunfels for the past 7 years.
