Dr. Prowell attended Texas A&M University and began working at BVH after graduating in 1975, making her our most senior veterinarian at the practice. Like so many veterinarians, Dr. Prowell has given refuge to quite a few furry companions. She currently has 4 cats: Mouser, a little character with cerebellar hypoplasia; Jimmy, an orphaned kitty who was raised by a foster mom; Sharkie, who initially had to be quarantined for 6 months as a rabies suspect but luckily showed no sign of rabies and was able to get a home with Dr. Prowell at the end of the quarantine; and Cyborg, a semi-feral kitty who doesnt let her ongoing eye issues slow her down. In addition to her 4 cats, Dr. Prowell also has 2 very sweet Australian Shepherds, Evie and Nyx, a mother and daughter pair Im sure youve seen lounging around the hospital on a daily basis. To complete this full house, Dr. Prowell also has 2 horses: Cal and Snickers. At various times these horses have accompanied Dr. Prowell on one of her favorite pastimes, trail riding. A former competitive trail rider and 50-mile endurance rider, she now enjoys pleasure trail rides with friends and her canine companions. When she is not trail riding, she often enjoys bird watching. Dr. Prowell has 3 sisters; one is a retired city planner living in Colorado, the second is a retired professor at LSU in Baton Rouge. Her third sister and her niece are American flight attendants who reside in Florida. And, to top off this family, her nephew lives in Texas and owns a heating and air conditioning business.
