Travis McDermott, D.V.M. - Hospital Director
Dr. Travis McDermott was born in Galveston, TX and grew up in a small, rural town called La Grange, TX. He obtained both his undergraduate and veterinary degrees from Texas A&M University in College Station, TX. After receiving his veterinary degree in 2006, Dr. McDermott moved to Las Vegas and has been practicing small animal medicine since that time.
Dr. McDermott has an interest in dermatology, dentistry, internal medicine, and surgery, but his true passion is endoscopic/laparoscopic procedures. Using his extensive training, Dr. McDermott is able to perform endoscopy (evaluation, biopsy, or foreign body retrieval in the stomach, intestines, and colon), rhinoscopy (evaluation/biopsy of the nasal cavity), cystoscopy (evaluation/biopsy of the bladder), and laparoscopy (minimally invasive procedures inside the abdomen).
Dr. McDermott remains very active in the veterinary field by serving on the Nevada Veterinary Medical Association Board of Directors and the AVMA Political Action Committee. He is married to his lovely wife Nasim, and has 2 two-legged children (Owen and Aiden) and 2 four-legged children (Cooper and Timon).
