Our Doctors

Dr. Spillers, OwnerRobert Spillers, D.V.M., Owner
Texas A&M
Lt. Col, USAF, Ret.

Dr. Spillers is a San Antonio native and a graduate of the United State Air Force Academy.  After having a distinguished career in the United States Air Force, he attended Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine to become a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine.  

Dr. Spillers has always shown a great compassion for animals - both human and our furry, feathered & scaley friends.  Over the past 40 years he has opened his home and heart to many children outside of his own, six kids; providing them with a stable, loving family environment and support when they've needed it most.  With the curiosity of a cat, he has shared his intrigue for life, music, science and sports to encourage and mold each child into confident adults, engaged with life, family and community.

It is sometimes said that the veterinarian is the "Other Family Doctor".  Dr. Spillers proudly took the helm of Town & Country Veterinary Hospital in 2003 to continue the honored tradition (since 1968) of providing medical services for our community's many animal family members.  He has expanded Town & Country Veterinary Hospital to provide caring medical, surgical, grooming, and boarding services 24 hours a day in order to serve our diverse community. 

Dr. Spillers' favorite, cute, furry, canine daughter "Ginny" is often at the hospital to greet and entertain clients.

Dr. VierraXimena Vierra, D.V.M.
Michigan State University

Dr. Ximena Vierra originally hails from Hawaii and is a graduate of Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine.  An energetic mother of four, she has had the pleasure of calling San Antonio "home" since 2007.  Although Dr. Vierra has a warm heart for all small animals, she is especially fond of exotic pets including rabbits, ferrets and small rodents. 

Her fresh approach to animal care has been a great benefit to our staff and our patients.  With so many variables involved in veterinary medicine, Dr. Vierra loves the challenges of her practice.  When asked "why" she became a vet, she said, "It was just meant to be!  Being the youngest of the family, I always had the job of taking care of the dog, the cat, chickens, duck and goat."  ...and so the seed was planted early!

She is a member of the AVMA and the South Texas committee of United States Masters Swimming organization.  Dr. Vierra is a driven individual who's compassion for her patients and expertise in medicine will make her your family's "other" doctor.

One of her favorite quotes:  "DOG spelled backwards is GOD"

Meet Our TeamAna Macias, D.V.M.
Texas A&M

Graduating Cum Laude from TAMU, Dr. Macias was an outstanding study of medicine and is an outstanding doctor.  This Aggie joins us from Progreso, TX in the Rio Grande Valley.  Dr. Macias’ calm and thoughtful manner has been a constant comfort to our pet owners.  Her thirst for both knowledge and  understanding has driven her to treat every patient with the best care.  

Dr. Macias' two Beagles, “Pickles” and “Gracie” have a special place in her heart, but they have recently had to make room in her heart and home for her newborn daughter. She enjoys the daily challenge of veterinary medicine and will give your pet the time and attention they deserve from their vet.

Dr. ManningJohn G. Manning, D.V.M., M.S.
Texas A&M

A native Texan, from Corsicana, Dr. Manning joined us in San Antonio in 2011.  He attended Texas A&M for both his undergrad and Veterinary degrees.

Dr. Manning has a special interest in "integrated medicine" (a mix of western medicine with acupuncture, herbology and energy healing) for a more holistic approach.  His acupuncture expertise enhances Town & Country's medical repertoire available for our patients and offers other options when conventional medications aren't a complete solution to a pet's health problem.

When at the age of 4 he watched a veterinarian perform a "miracle" on a cow, bringing it "back to life," a spark was lit inside the young John Manning.  This incredible experience is a large part of what made him the dedicated doctor that he is today.  When not at work you can find Dr. Manning cheering on his son (the budding baseball star), playing guitar or practicing his swing on the golf course.  He is a member of both TVMA and AVMA.  His well-rounded approach to medicine helps this friendly Texan care for your pets and find solutions for your companion's health that fit with your family.

Dr. GarciaAlbeisa Rut Garza, D.V.M.
Ross University

Dr. Albeisa Rut Garza was born and raised in Laredo, Texas.  She is married to David Garza and together they have four, beautiful girls.  She attended the University of Texas - Pan American for her undergraduate studies.  There she obtained a bachelors degree in Pre-medical biology and minor in Chemistry.  Dr. Garza taught high school biology and chemistry for about three years before attending Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine.

Dr. Garza became a veterinarian when she realized her passion to always help animals in their time of need.  She believes that being a veterinarian allows her to keep humanity safe from zoonotic diseases by practicing veterinary medicine and providing care for their animals.  She has a special interest in internal medicine and surgery.  What she likes most about veterinary medicine is that it allows her to be an advocate for animals who are unable to speak for themselves.  Her hobbies and favorite past time includes scrapbooking, decorations, and spending time with family.  She has two adorable pets; Milkshake, a 7 year old Cocker Spaniel and Violet, a 4 year old Yorkshire Terrier.

Dr. LutmerIngrid L. Lutmer, D.V.M.
North Carolina State University

Dr. Lutmer has always had a connection with and love of animals.  She finds great satisfaction and joy out of small animal veterinary medicine, and has an additional passion for wildlife conservation.  Both of these  interests drive her to be an advocate for animals, helping the "helpless."  Veterinary medicine also allows her to foster strong bonds between animals and their people.  This is an important aspect of the profession, both rewarding and motivating Dr. Lutmer.

Originally from Sylva, NC, Dr. Lutmer attended Davidson College for undergrad and received her veterinary degree from North Carolina State University.  She enjoys an added emphasis on feline medicine and exotics.  A member of TVMA, AVMA and AAFP, she enjoys the companionship of her two kitties, Trogdor and Frankie.  Dr. Lutmer joined us at Town & Country in June of 2013.

Dr. NaranjoCathryn S. Naranjo, D.V.M.
Ross University

A native Texan from Corpus Christi, Dr. Naranjo attended Texas A&M Corpus Christi for her undergrad and continued onto Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine.  Since the age of 5, Dr. Naranjo aspired to be a Veterinarian.  She became a Veterinarian to help make our furry friends healthier.  She sees animals as much more than pets; she sees them as part of the family.   One of Dr. Naranjo's favorite aspects of Veterinary Medicine is emergency care.  With emergencies, you never know what is going to walk in.  There is great satisfaction in knowing that you helped an animal get back onto the road of recovery.  Not only does she have a special affinity for emergency care, but also strongly values the importance of preventative care for our pets.

Dr. Naranjo understands how we connect with our furry family friends.  She will show your pets the love and respect that they deserve.  A little known fact - in addition to being a great doctor, she is a regular "Martha Stewart"; flexing her artistic muscle outside of the hospital with scrapbooking, baking, and decorating.

Dr. Naranjo is a member of American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA).
