About Tri-City Animal & Bird Clinic
Tri-City Animal & Bird Clinic was established in 1961 by Dr. Arthur Brauer as a mixed animal practice. In those early days, the hospital was surrounded by agricultural fields and the Tri-City name was chosen to create an easily recognizable identity for the clinic that served the towns of Ballwin, Manchester and Ellisville which at that time were collectively known as the "Tri-Cities". Dr. Brauer sold the clinic to Dr. Catherine Hogan in 1986 and retired shortly thereafter. Dr. Hogan successfully introduced avian and exotic medicine and surgery to the practice before selling the practice to Dr. Mark Van Horn.
