Meet Dr. Brian Collins, Captain in the Army Reserves!

Helping Hands Military Veterinarian

In honor of Veteran’s Day, we would like to feature Dr. Brian Collins, a Captain in the United States Army Reserves. Dr. Collins has been with Helping Hands Affordable Veterinary Surgery and Dental Care since November 2015. He began his military service in 1998. He was in the Navy from 1998 through 2003 and was serving in Washington D.C. during the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. After his tour in the Navy, he attended Iowa State University and graduated from the Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2010. While he started his veterinary career working with large animals, he transitioned into the primary small animal veterinarian at his clinic in Iowa. Dr. Collins joined the U.S. Army Reserves in November of 2013. He serves as a Veterinary Field Officer with the 949th Medical Detachment Veterinary Services unit. His wife, Dr. Jodi Collins DVM, serves as a Captain in the U.S. Army Reserves as well. His strong interest in veterinary surgery and dental care brought him to Helping Hands where he has become a valued part of the team. When he and his wife are not serving their country or helping animals, they spend their time with their beautiful daughter Emery. We are very proud of Dr. Brian’s military service.
Helping Hands works with many of the Military Base Veterinary doctors in the tri-state area to help the pets’ of Military Families get the care they need. We offer a 10% discount when a military I.D. is shown. We know how important it is that a beloved pet is there to greet Mom or Dad when they arrive home from deployment. We would like to take the time this Veterans’ Day to say thank you to Dr. Brian, his wife, and all who have served and continue to serve our country!
