Frank Stein, DVM taught at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine for many years and retired as The Director of the Veterinary Medical Research Park in 2009. The Doctors Stein have had an incredibly successful and storybook career showing their livestock all over the country.

Marsha Stein, DVM opened her practice in Snook Texas in June or 1985. Her practice has been in the same place ever since. Dr. Marsha has always had a love of horses, and she followed that love by working for the Texas Racing Commission from 1990 thru 1994 as a State Veterinarian at Manor Downs near Austin, Texas, Gillespie County Fairgounds in Fredericksburg, Texas, and at the Sam Houston Race Park in Houston, Texas. Her time at the race tracks was a difficult period, because she tried to keep her practice in Snook going even though she was away from home six days a week. In the fall of 1994 she returned to her practice in Snook and has been content to be “the Snook Veterinarian” ever since. Dr. Stein was appointed to the Texas Animal Health Commission in 1994 by Governor Ann Richards. She served as a commissioner on the TAHC until 1999.
Marsha Stein, DVM is a member of The American Veterinary Medical Association, the Texas Veterinary Medical Association, The Brazos Valley Veterinary Medical Association, and the Bluebonnet Veterinary Medical Association.

Dr. Marsha Stein truly enjoys each day at her practice in Snook. She tells people all the time that she will never retire because she loves what she does. Since she sees companion animals, horses, and livestock, there never seems to be a dull moment at Snook Veterinary Clinic. Dr. Stein is committed to her clients and patients. She still works totally by herself and has learned to do all things by herself. Dr. Frank Stein will help her with emergencies, but she likes and prefers the one on one relationships she has forged over the years. Marsha Stein, DVM will make you one; and only one, promise. She will treat you and your animal with dignity and honesty. Dr. Stein’s priorities are to her Maker, her family, and to her Veterinary career.
