Our Story

Dr. McKee started his veterinary practice in 1975. Southwest Animal Care Complex was established in 1989 after he visited a Colorado classmate running a veterinary clinic and doggie daycare facility. At the time, nothing like that existed to serve the people and pets in El Paso. Dr. McKee set out to create the ultimate place for dogs and cats. Boasting a heated doggie pool, specially-built dog runs, and expansive outdoor play areas, the new Southwest Animal Care Complex was and is a premier choice for pet owners.

Our three veterinarians, experienced staff, and skilled grooming team provide a one-stop facility for veterinary care, doggie daycare, boarding, and grooming. Contact us to request a tour or learn more about our services and team.

They were fantastic with my dog for daycare for 3 weeks. If we are ever back in El Paso, I'll drive across town and into New Mexico to get her there. Thanks for taking care of Choola for me.

K. Mosser

Pleasant staff. Their knowledge & care for dogs is second to none. Prices are reasonable for daycare & overnight boarding. My dog gets excited when I take him there.

R. Smith

Dr. Gutierrez is extremely thorough in her care and provides detailed explanations for what is going on with my dogs. I would never take my dogs anywhere else after experiencing her care.

C. Acosta

We have trusted them with our pups for almost a decade because they really take good care of them.
