Meet the Doctors

Walker Animal Hospital is proud to have two experienced and dedicated veterinarians.

Dr. John Varnado

Dr. John E. Varnado was born and raised here in Walker, Louisiana.  He has been practicing veterinary medicine for over 30 years.  He attended LSU for preveterinary courses and graduated from LSU School of Veterinary Medicine in 1981.  After graduating, Dr. Varnado worked in a practice in Baton Rouge for 18 months as a primarly large animal equine vet.  In 1983 he built his first building located on the corner of Aydell and South Walker and began practicing in Walker as Varnado Animal Clinic.  As the town grew, additional space was needed and in 2005 he build a new hospital at our present location on Walker South and changed the name to Walker Animal Hospital.

Dr. Varnado and his wife Molly are active, life long members of Walker Baptist Church.  Their son Ryan and his wife Courtney, along with their 2 children Rylan and Slade, live here in Walker.  Their daughter Laura and her husband Michael, along with their 2 children Brayden and Reese, live in Mandeville.  In Dr. Varnado’s free time he enjoys spending time with his family (especially wonderful grandchildren) and friends, working out and target shooting.
