Our practice's owner hails from the small town of Epps, Louisiana. He received a BS in Animal Science from Louisiana Tech University and then moved to Baton Rouge to attend Louisiana State University, where he earned Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from the School of Veterinary Medicine in May 1989. He came to Parkway Veterinary Clinic
in October 1991, and he purchased the practice in July 1992. Though Dr. Rhymes enjoys many aspects of animal medicine, his real love is surgery. He is an expert in guiding pets and their concerned owners through the trauma of surgery and post-operative management. He has three children, two cats, one dog, and a herd of registered Polled Hereford cattle.
