Our History



1970, Dr. Jim Airhart opened Town East Animal Hospital in Mesquite, TX and strived to provide the best medical care possible in a caring and compassionate manner.



In 2017, sadly Dr. Jim Airhart passed away. His widow, Jetta Aihart carefully selected Dr. Dickson Bain and the Hillside group to sell the practice to. Town East Animal Hospital now has 8 sister clinics; Hillside Veterinary Clinic (open 24/7), Abrams Forest Veterinary Clinic, Preston Royal Animal Clinic, Dallas Veterinary Specialists, Canyon Creek Animal Clinic, Prestonwood Pet Clinic, Rowlett Veterinary Clinic and Liberty Grove Animal Hospital.
