Dr. Angela Holcombe has had a passion for helping others ever since she was a little girl. As a teenager, it became apparent to her that she would only be fulfilled by choosing a career that allowed her to make a positive impact on the lives of other people. Having grown up in a Texas ranching family, veterinary medicine felt like the natural choice! Now, Dr. Holcombe is happy to serve the pets and animal owners of the Bloomingdale area as a veterinarian and the owner of Faulkville Animal Hospital.
Dr. Holcombe attended Texas A&M University to receive both her undergraduate degree in animal science and her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine. After graduation, she started practicing at a large mixed-animal facility in eastern Texas before moving to Charleston, South Carolina with her husband. Dr. Holcombe signed on at a small animal practice there before the opportunity arose for her and her husband to move to the Savannah area. She worked in a small hospital just outside the city for a few years before opening up Faulkville Animal Hospital for business in late 2009.
Here at the hospital, Dr. Holcombe enjoys routine wellness visits and putting together the pieces of a patient’s “puzzle” via diagnostic work. Most of all, she enjoys the relationships that she’s able to form with pets and their families—for her, it’s a true honor to play such a positive role in their lives!
When she has spare time away from her duties as a full-time veterinarian and practice owner, Dr. Holcombe enjoys soaking up the sunshine in her garden, trying her hand at stand-up paddle-boarding, and spending time with her family. She and her husband, James, have two children and share their home with several pets: Moose, a Labradoodle who follows Dr. Holcombe everywhere; Sawyer the cat who acts more like a small dog; Gus, a type of horse known as a Tarpan whose species nearly went extinct in the early 1900s; and a flock of egg-laying chickens. Faulkville Animal Hospital’s clinic mascot, Sadie the paraplegic dachshund, also comes home with Dr. Holcombe on the weekends.
