Dr. John H. Kuczek takes great pride in being a Killeen native and he returned to the area after graduating from Texas Tech and Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine. He established a mobile large animal practice that he operated for 7 years.
Wanting to broaden his experience he accepted a position on Fort Hood and spent 7 years as the veterinarian for the First Calvary Horse Detachment, the Fort Hood Veterinary Treatment Facility and for the Military Working Dogs.
On 16 April 2016, Dr. Kuczek and his wife, Emily, assumed ownership of Aztec Pet Hospital. Dr. Kuczek immediately expanded services to include a wide range of surgeries and dental procedures. He is very passionate about internal medicine and critical care. He seeks out educational opportunities as well as investing in the latest technology to ensure our clients receive the highest quality of medicine possible right here at Aztec with the Doctors they know and trust.
Dr. Kuczek enjoys driving his vintage tractor with his two sons. He also spends his free time fishing, cooking, watching science fiction movies, and he attempts to shorten the "honey-do" list at home.
We are very happy to introduce

Dr. Cabral is from Coupland, a small country town about an hour South of Temple. She did her undergraduate studies at Tarleton State University, graduating in 2007. She received her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from Texas A&M in 2012.
She worked near Houston before moving to central Texas where she has been working for the last 7.5 years. When asked what she enjoys about being a veterinarian, Dr. Cabral said, "I love the joy and challenges that vetmed brings. I get to combine some of my favorite things all in one. Animals, medicine, solving puzzles and helping others." Dr. Cabral also enjoys working with a variety of exotic pets. She will be the only vet at Aztec to treat exotic pets so please call and set up an appointment to make sure she is available.
