Dr. Anne Fraser Matthews
Dr. Fraser has been associated with Lancers Square Animal Clinic since 1983. Having grown up taking care of family pets in St. Louis, Missouri, she knew as a child she wanted a profession caring for people and animals. Veterinary medicine was a perfect match.
After graduating in 1983 from the College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Missouri-Columbia, she married and got to Texas as soon as she could! Initially, Dr. Fraser practiced in a number of small animal clinics in Dallas and Plano. Eventually, she established her own small animal relief practice and has worked with Dr. Reeves ever since.
Dr. Fraser is a member of professional associations at national, state (Texas and Missouri) and local levels. Monthly veterinary continuing education meetings, annual educational conferences, and independent study keep her current on treatments and procedures. She especially enjoys pocket pets: rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, hedgehogs, gerbils, mice, hamsters, and rats.
Dr. Fraser has a blessed life because she has the joy of caring for the pets and families at LSAC while raising, with her husband, a family of three boys and an array of pets.

Bridgette is a born and raised Texas girl! Originally from Mansfield, she now resides in Melissa. She graduated from Mansfield High School and went on to receive her Veterinary Assistant Certification from the University of Texas at Arlington after two years at TCC.
Her love for animals started at a very young age. She would take home any and every animal that needed "saving," which is exactly how she ended up with most of her pets. After working as a veterinary assistant for three years, she moved into veterinary practice management! She has now been in veterinary medicine for 15 years! She's never worked any other job that felt so rewarding!
When she's not working, she likes to spend time with all of her babies.

She also enjoys crafting, karaoke and brunch with friends!
