Charlotte Dawson, DVM
Dr. Charlotte Dawson grew up near the USAF bases and Cambridge University in England. In her early years, she yearned to be a veterinarian and often volunteered at her local vet clinic. In 2009, she chose the Royal Veterinary College (RVC) as her future alma mater and studied bio-veterinary science in London. After graduating with her first degree and finding her future husband, she returned to RVC to complete her degree in veterinary medicine and was inducted into the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons in 2017.
Throughout her years of vet school, Dr. Dawson worked at the London Zoo and multiple working animal farms across Europe. Her experiences fueled her passion to further her large animal focus and find bridges to connect with animals and their owners. She began work as a mixed practice relief veterinary surgeon, traveling around England before settling at Avenue Veterinary Centre in Grantham. In 2019, her husband retired from the Air Force and they all decided Texas was their future home and settled in New Braunfels to join the Chisholm Trail Veterinary Clinic team.
