Brian Shaw, DVM
Brian Shaw, DVM

I was born in South Africa and grew up on a dairy farm with a succession of pets that included sheep, goats, a parrot, cats and dogs of a variety of breeds and temperaments. Hence my interest in Veterinary Medicine . I have been fortunate in being able to pursue my dream in a career that allows me to interact with people and help their animals.
1964 graduates of the University of Pretoria Veterinary School,
my classmate and colleague, Dr. Arthur Simon and I started out by building a general private practice and hospital in South Africa, prior to emigrating to the United States in 1975. Once in Tampa I joined and then acquired Harris Animal Hospital in east Tampa and soon after built Village Animal Hospital in North Tampa. We ran both AAHA certified hospitals enjoying the support of many clients in providing state of the art care for their animals. The hospitals were purchased by Banfield in June 2016 and are part of Mars Veterinary Services.
