David Tribby, DVM

Born in Virginia

Wife:  Maria, 3 children, 6 grandchildren.

I graduated from University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine in 1964. Maria, the kids and I initially returned to Virginia to start my veterinary career, then we moved in West Virginia for a new opportunity in my profession. I have been in veterinary practice in Augusta for 50 years. I still enjoy my chosen profession, caring for pets and knowing their families! I have authored 2 published books of poetry “Gifts in Time” and “Along the Way” under the watchful eyes of my little doggies Lili Belle and Pete. It is exciting to be in practice with my son Mark at our new facility, Hill High Animal Hospital.

Mark Tribby, DVM

I was born in Athens, Ga while my father attended the UGA College of Veterinary Medicine; our family lived in the married student housing just in front of the College. I remember living in an apartment above the 1st animal hospital my father worked after he graduated. Our house was just off the parking lot of his second animal hospital. I literally “grew up” around veterinary medicine! I often was rounded out of bed to go on animal emergency calls with my father as specialized “emergency clinics” were unheard of in my preschool/grade school years. In 1988 I graduated from the UGA College of Veterinary Medicine. I opened my first veterinary practice SweetApple Animal Hospital in ‘92 in Alpharetta, GA. My wife Catherine helped me walk even the biggest of dogs on weekends as newlyweds in our young business! Now our children Armando, Emily, and Corell eagerly pitch in with walking dogs, feeding our clinic kittens, and helping with office and landscaping work at Hill High Animal Hospital.  Our two brave rescue dogs Puppy and Callie watch over our home ‘round the clock. My father and I have teamed together at Hill High Animal Hospital to help serve you and your pets. Our families strive to honor the tradition of veterinarian and pet owner partnership to best understand and meet your pet’s veterinary needs!
