About Us


Dr. Alan Ward has a strong interest in research and has designed and implemented a number of the treatment protocols used at Plano Animal Clinic (PAC). These protocols, known as PAC alternative therapies, include treatments for viral disease, glaucoma, inflammatory bowel disease, heartworm disease, and others. He takes a whole body approach to healing the root causes of illness, as opposed to symptomatic treatment of clinical signs. His methods are geared toward helping the body heal itself, and in so doing, he has seen many animals recover from illnesses he would not have thought possible 10 years ago.


Dr. Ward was born in Dallas and grew up in Richardson, Texas, one of three children, graduating from Berkner High School in 1974. He did his undergraduate and graduate studies at Texas A&M University and began his veterinary career in 1980. Practicing at two different locations in Dallas before moving to Plano, he became the new owner of Plano Animal Clinic (PAC) in 1984. He is married to Telma Ward, a native of Brazil, and they have two grown sons and two grandchildren. Their older son served one tour in Iraq as a U.S. Marine, and their younger son is a graduate of the University of North Texas. A member of his local, state, and national veterinary associations, Dr. Ward takes advantage of continuing education opportunities to keep abreast in the fields of conventional and alternative veterinary medicine.


At Plano Animal Clinic, we believe in giving back to the community to help others and have supported the local American Red Cross for many years, along with Convoy of Hope and Forgotten Harvest. We hope to continue doing so in the future.


Special thanks to my lovely wife, Telma, for her patience, understanding, and loving support. Thanks to my great staff at Plano Animal Clinic for their hard work and concern for our clients and their pets. A big thanks also to Elaine Davis for her editing skills, computer entry, and having the patience of Job… and to Cheryl Gibson, of 5'Odezyn, for bringing it all together so well on this website. Most importantly, I give thanks to God, who makes all things possible.
