Dr. Jay Naylor graduated from Texas A&M University with his bachelor degree in Marine Biology in 1979 and his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 1985. He has practiced small animal medicine and surgery in the Round Rock/North Austin area since graduation and has owned Brushy Creek Veterinary Clinic since 1990.
Dr. Naylor is married and lives in Round Rock. He and his wife currently own a Siamese cat “Valentine” and recently enjoyed the privilege of “dog-sitting” a long hair Chihuahua “April” for their son and daughter-in-law who are living in Budapest, Hungary.

A strong advocate of the need for continuing education in the profession, Dr. Naylor has been a member of the Texas Academy of Veterinary Practitioners since 1990.

Dr. Stephanie Pratt, D.V.M.
Dr. Stephanie Pratt grew up in New Mexico. She obtained her doctorate degree at Colorado State University in May 2000. A year after graduation, she relocated to Austin with her husband Travis. Her love and appreciation for animals began when she started showing horses at age five. By age 15, she was working at her family’s veterinary practice in Santa Fe and continued there during vacation periods throughout her college years. She is the 12th Veterinarian in her family. Her grandfather, Dr. Edwin Smith was Smokey Bear’s veterinarian when he was injured as a cub in a forest fire.
Dr. Pratt has grown to appreciate the special human-animal bond that exists between pets and their owners. This appreciation is what drives her to provide the best medicine possible, maintaining that healthy bond. She enjoys all aspects of veterinary medicine and has special interests in surgery and internal medicine.
In her free time, Dr. Pratt enjoys fishing, horseback riding, camping, boating, watching her children play sports and spending time with her husband and family. Her children, Colton age 10 and Aspen age 8, keep her very busy with softball and baseball on her days off as a doctor. Their family pets are a young lab mix named “Hank” who is full of fun energy and a very sweet cat named “Jackie Robinson” .
