Dr. Shawn McCorkle

Owner and Veterinarian


I started Summer Creek Animal Clinic because I desire a different experience for my patients and clients. I am burdened every time a pet that I am charged to care for and protect is terrified to come to the vet. This has led to a passion to do things differently, to create a place where pets are dragging their owners into the practice rather than clawing their way out of it. Many in our profession would say this task is impractical or impossible, but I believe every pet and their person deserves this level of care and attention to their emotional health. I have also seen a desire within the community of pet owners for an experience that is consistent, thorough, transparent, honest, and fair. I have desired these things with deep conviction as well and this has motivated me to create a practice from the ground that provides this experience for every pet and their owner with great excellence and efficiency.

I am a Texan through and through, growing up in Garland, TX and graduating from Texas A&M University School of Veterinary Medicine in 2010. I ended up in Fort Worth after getting married in 2011 and we quickly fell in love with this city. Cowtown is our home now and we are here to stay. I worked in emergency medicine for 2 years followed by a day practice for 6 years after that. My main interests medically are preventive medicine, pain management, and dentistry/oral surgery.

I enjoy watching movies with my beautiful wife, hanging out with our 4 dogs, and spending time with our church family. I also enjoy board games, card games, and old school video games.
