About Our Animal Clinic in Dallas

Providing excellent service to the Dallas community

A&B Animal Clinic is a family oriented clinic established in December 1990 by Dr. Jim Ahumada and his wife Dr. Helene Bergeron. They envisioned a clinic that fostered a welcoming environment for pets and people alike, by providing excellent, affordable, and caring service to the residents of Dallas. Unfortunately, Dr. Ahumada passed away in August 2013. Afterwards, Dr. Bergeron, with the help of Drs. Terry Litsey and Jennifer Richey, continue to run the clinic according to the vision and ideals that A&B has held dear since 1990.

We are committed to providing excellent service to you and your pets by offering relaxed visits utilizing Fear Free techniques. We provide a full range of services from traditional wellness and surgical procedures, to pain management and acupuncture. Your pet’s well-being is our primary concern.

We use a Free Free approach to treatment we aim to “take the ‘pet’ oufearfree_prof_rgb_large_xw300_xh134t of ‘petrified’” and get pets back for veterinary visits by promoting considerate approach and gentle control techniques used in calming environments. We focus on the reduction or removal of anxiety triggers, which creates an experience that is rewarding and safer for all involved, including pets, their owners, and veterinary health care teams. The end result? Calmer, more accepting patients, more compliant clients, and better veterinary care.


  • Dr. Richey is the bomb. Every one of the staff is terrific. And my bulldog breaks the door down to get in and has to be dragged out. I swear. Been going here for close to 20 years.

  • Wonderful people very caring and very special. Took very good care of our beloved Lucy and Bruce. To their very last breath.

  • Dr. Richey not only cured my cat of her diabetes, but has seen my three dogs through a few crises, including heat stroke and stomach and kidney problems. She is so kind and caring, and she really listens. Sixteen paws, and two thumbs up for Dr. Richey!

  • Just had another great A&B visit – the staff is kind and knowledgeable. Dr. Richey does a great job – I have cats and dogs and she takes care of them all and has for over 10 years. I really appreciate the way she listens and finds a reasonable treatment plan. I really feel I can count on Dr. Richey’s care.
