He is an active member of the Dallas County Veterinary Medical Association, The Texas VMA, and the American VMA. His veterinary interest are preventative medicine, routine patient care, as well as surgery, especially orthopedics.
Dr. Pruitt's love and care of animals started at an young age while being raised on a farm south of Glen Rose, TX. He milked cows, raised chickens, pigeons and showed pigs for 4-H projects. While in high school he had a small sow/pig operation to earn money for his college education. He performed his first surgery at the age of twelve on a piglet sedated with a sleeping pill given to him by a local pharmacist.
Dr. Pruitt received a Masters in Divinity degree in 1993 from Brite Divinity School at TCU in Ft. Worth and held a pastorate for numerous years while he continued veterinary medicine. He has been an active Rotrian since 1979 and participates in several charitable organizations including Children's International, sponsoring Filipino children for several years.
Beyond the practice of veterinary medicine and ministry, Dr. Pruitt enjoys spending time with his wife, Karen, three children and five grandchildren, riding his motorcycle, playing the trumpet, lifting weights, and eating, especially anything with chocolate in it under it or on top of it! Dr. Pruitt also thinks he is an amateur photographer but here at the clinic we know differently. Don’t ask to see his pictures you won't have the time. Dr. Pruitt also enjoys writing spiritual devotionals for his ministry, poetry, and is author of a book titled This Man Called Bull.
