After 12 years as a Marine Corps officer, “Captain” Snyder returned to his home state and entered The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1996. Graduating in 2000, he reentered the military as an Army Major in the Veterinary Corps. Retiring from the military in 2008, Dr. Snyder worked in several full-service clinic locations in El Paso before he and his wife, Delia, opened up their clinic, The Veterinary Care Centers of Texas, on Airway Blvd. Accredited with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), one of Dr. Snyder’s greatest desires is to provide essential pet care at an affordable price to his community. Dr. Snyder has a keen interest in exotic pets as well, and enjoys treating scaly, furry, and feathered patients whenever he gets the chance. He and his wife share their house with four Chihuahuas. When not at work, Dr. Snyder can probably be found out running on the roads and trails of El Paso.
