Dr. McIntosh has loved animals for as long as he can remember. He became acquainted with them early in life, and participated in 4-H, FFA, and rodeos to learn more. Dr. McIntosh eventually decided to dedicate his career to veterinary science to better help and understand them. He earned a Bachelor of Science in animal science, a Bachelor of Science in veterinary science, and a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Texas A&M University in 1963, 1967, and 1968, respectively, and he was off. After a brief stint as an assistant county agricultural agent in Cleburne, Texas, he joined the U.S. Air Force Veterinary Corps. He served for two years before returning to civilian life as the owner and operator of Park North Animal Hospital. Then, in 1973, Dr. McIntosh decided to open his own practice, El Dorado Animal Hospital, and he has been there ever since.
Outside of his clinical work, Dr. McIntosh is very involved with his professional community. He has been the chairman and founding member of the Veterinary Technology Advisory Council at Palo Alto College since 1995, and is a member of organizations like the American Veterinary Medical Association. In the past, he has served as a teacher of ethics for veterinarian students at Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine, a teacher of animal health technology at San Antonio College, the president and manager of the Bexar County Emergency Animal Clinic, Inc., and the founding member and veterinarian liaison of the Texas Association of Animal Technicians (now TARVT). Additionally, he contributed articles to professional journals and chapters to the books “Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover’s Soul” and “Chicken Soup for the Soul: Loving Our Cats.”
As a testament to his hard work and dedication, Dr. McIntosh earned an Outstanding Business Partner Award from the Northeast Independent School District, the Lynn Anderson Outstanding Service Award from the San Antonio Chapter of the Delta Society, the Outstanding Service Award from San Antonio College, and the Alumnus Award from the Guadalupe County 4-H Club.
