Farrell Animal Hospital History

Our History

Dr. J.M. Farrell started treating patients in his home in the 1940s after graduating from Texas A&M Veterinary school in 1944. In 1949, Dr. J.M. Farrell opened, with his brother, Dr. Don Farrell, Farrell Animal Hospital on West Division Street bringing a state of the art veterinary practice to Arlington, Texas.

In 1972, Farrell Animal Hospital was moved to the Pioneer Parkway location where we are currently located. A few years later Dr. James Turner started working for Farrell Animal Hospital in 1980 as an assistant and continued working at Farrell during summers and holidays. In 1988, upon graduation from vet school, Dr. Turner returned to Farrell Animal Hospital as an associate veterinarian. He worked with Dr. J.M. Farrell until 1990, at which time he purchased Farrell Animal Hospital.
