Brad Singleton is from Southwest Louisiana originally, and attended Louisiana State University for both undergraduate studies and to earn his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine. After graduation, he worked for 2 years in a busy exotic and small animal practice in Las Vegas, Nevada, before deciding Austin was the best place to call home.
Dr. Singleton’s professional interests include non-traditional pets, surgery, and dermatology. Very early in his career, Dr. Singleton gained a reputation for his laid-back, personable demeanor and for his dedication to fully educate pet owners about their pet's health.
When Dr. Singleton set out to start a veterinary clinic, he wanted something different than what he had personally experienced. He envisioned a practice that took time to educate clients on the issues their pets experienced, as the pet parent is ultimately the care giver. He feels that clients are better able to make important decisions regarding their pet's care once they have been thoroughly educated on the options and have had all of their questions answered.
He also wanted a place that did not feel like a traditional veterinary clinic. Animals are in tune with much more than we realize, and they can often pick up on the things that make a veterinary hospital a scary place for them. Creating an environment that feels like visiting a friend’s home and taking an individualized approach to reducing stress for each patient has been a constant theme in the veterinary hospitals he has created. Dr. Singleton attributes the success of his hospitals to the amazing teams that carry out this vision each day and the clients who share in the goals of creating the best life for their pets.
He is married to Alisha, who helped found South Park Animal Hospital in 2011 and has 2 sons ages 7 and 4. They share their home with their 3 rescued dogs, two adopted bunnies, a snake, and a crawfish. In his free time, Dr. Singleton enjoys tending his yard and outdoor adventures with his family and pups.
Dr. Frank Shuman IV grew up in a small town on the Louisiana Texas border called Orange. He gained experience with animals working at the local mixed animal veterinary practice that served the close-knit community.
After high school, he earned an undergraduate degree in Biology from the University of Texas. During his time in Austin, he was able to visit and enjoy the active lifestyle and entertainment that Central Texas has to offer. These great experiences stuck with him and created a goal in mind to establish deep roots in the area one day.
Dr. Shuman was accepted and completed a Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine. Frank’s first position upon graduation was with the Houston SPCA where he quickly ascended to Medical Director. This position afforded him the opportunity to work with companion animals, farm animals, wildlife, and occasionally with large exotic cats. The shelters high case load allowed Dr. Shuman to gain advanced experience with soft tissue and orthopedic surgery and become proficient with managing critical cases. Frank can be seen treating animals that have been severely neglected and abused on Animal Cops Houston which airs on Animal Planet.
In 2013, Dr. Shuman became an adjunct professor for Texas A&M University where he initiated and managed the Shelter Medicine and Animal Welfare rotation for 4th year veterinary students.
Dr. Shuman has a keen interest in soft tissue and orthopedic surgery. He attends as many conferences and wet labs as possible to provide the more options and treatments for ailing pets. He also enjoys treating non-traditional pets. He works closely with the Austin Zoo to provide specialized care for zoo’s exotic collection. When you go to the zoo you may catch a glimpse of Dr. Shuman on his rounds.
Frank currently resides Southwest Austin and enjoys spending time with his wife, three children, and their dogs Tucker and Jack. Soccer is still one of his passions as well as the many other outdoor activities Austin has to offer.
Dr. Brittney Montana is a California native who found her love of animals when her kindergarten teacher gave her a rabbit named Leo. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Animal Science from the University of California Davis and went on to receive her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Ross University on the Caribbean island of St Kitts. She then fell in love with Texas when completing her clinical year of veterinary school at Texas A&M University. Dr. Montana's interests include pocket pet medicine, ophthalmology, emergency, and geriatric care.
Her passion for geriatric care began as her childhood dogs, Bailey and Poncho, began to age. She managed their chronic ailments with love and care until their ripe old age of 18. Having experienced first-hand as a pet owner how difficult it can be managing senior pets, Dr. Montana is passionate about keeping geriatric animals comfortable, prolonging quality of life, and educating clients.
Dr. Montana enjoys kickboxing, painting, and learning the ukulele. In her free time, she enjoys cozying up with her dachshund-mix Bandit, Caribbean cat Ozzie Pawsborne and her new rescue rabbit Houdini.

Why Hannah chose the veterinary industry: "I am a recent graduate of Texas A&M University (whoop!) and have had a long-time interest in biology and physiology. I grew up on a large sheep ranch in Priddy, Texas, and have made it my career to involve myself in animal science from a young age. This included placing a variety of specimens (mostly bugs) under my $40 children’s microscope and hunting for fossils on the property. In addition to my interest in veterinary medicine, I also love to do landscape and portrait photography, hike, fish and immerse myself in the outdoors. A lot of my favorite aspects of veterinary medicine stem from building relationships with both my patients and my clients. I hope to continue forming these valuable connections someday as a Small Animal Veterinarian."
About Hannah's pets: Hannah has a cat named Odo. Odo was found by her partner underneath his truck at work during their senior year of college. He has now grown up into a rambunctious feline who loves to eat any, and all plants, treats, and papers.
