Dr. James G. Hoglund - Managing Doctor of Veterinary Medicine

Dr. James Hoglund has been practicing companion animal medicine and surgical care in the DFW area since 2008. He comes to Family Pet Clinic of Richland Hills bringing with him 15+ years of multidisciplinary veterinary experience, with practice area expertise spanning animal wellness/preventive care, surgery, dermatology, dentistry, internal medicine, and emergency/critical care for companion animals both large and small.

Prior to joining the Family Pet Clinic of Richland Hills team, Dr. Hoglund spent four years as a supervising veterinarian within a busy emergency and referral animal hospital. He worked closely with Board-Certified Surgeons and Critical Care Specialists on a broad array of complex cases, developing well-honed expertise in providing life-saving emergency and surgical care treating toxic ingestions, traumatic injuries, and severe/chronic illnesses. His previous work includes veterinary positions within private practice and public health settings, including roles as lead veterinarian, Level II-certified equine dentist, and state veterinary technician for the Iowa State Racing & Gaming Commission.

Dr. Hoglund earned his DVM from Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine and his BS in Animal Science from North Dakota State University. He places particular emphasis on the human-animal bond, compassion-geared care, and progressive veterinary medicine incorporating the latest advancements in animal diagnostics, health, and wellness.

Dr. Hoglund’s compassion for animals began in childhood from growing up on a small grain farm in North Dakota, where he and his family raised, showed, and cared for a wide variety of animals ranging from rabbits to Clydesdales. This love of animals started him on his true passion of veterinary medicine. When not at work, Dr. Hoglund can be found trying out new recipes for family and friends or spending time training and playing with his young Blue Heeler, Phoebe.
