Dr. Mary Marczak was born and raised in Houston, Texas. Even at an early age she knew she would become a veterinarian. Her fondest memories of high school were raising and showing her many FFA projects. Steers, pigs, lambs, rabbits and even chickens lived at some time or another in her neighborhood backyard. Her parents were very facilitating, and her neighbors quite understanding. She began working at a mixed animal veterinary hospital when she was 15. She loved it and continued her employment through her second year of veterinary school. She graduated from Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine in 1994. She moved to Granbury in 1998. Long Creek Animal Hospital was started in 2001 because of her huge desire to continue practicing both large and small animal medicine. An opportunity to purchase another existing mixed animal hospital led to the birth of All Creatures Animal Hospital in 2006. She loves veterinary medicine, and states that she could not imagine her life without the opportunity to make her patients feel better and live longer. As everyone knows, one must have hobbies to remain sane. She enjoys riding her motorcycle with her husband Kenneth and their friends, and relaxing with her horses. She often states, what would life be without the welcoming smile of “Black Dog”, and she wishes there was more than 24 hours in a day to enjoy each animal’s joyous and unselfish offerings.
Dr. Carmine Esposito earned his Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy from the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy and Science. Upon graduation, he worked in hospital and retail pharmacy for two years before returning to graduate school. He pursued and ultimately earned his Doctorate in Pharmacy from the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia. Dr. Esposito practiced Pharmacy for seven years before pursuing his dream of becoming a veterinarian. In 2010, he graduated Magna Cum Laude from St. George’s University School of Veterinary Medicine after completing his clinical year at North Carolina State University Teaching Hospital.
After graduation Dr. Esposito spent his first three years working as a full time Associate Veterinarian at a five-doctor veterinary hospital in Scottsdale, Arizona, while also working as a staff Pharmacist and Consultant Veterinarian for an internationally-recognized veterinary compounding pharmacy. Dr. Esposito then returned to Hunterdon County New Jersey to be near family and friends. Upon his return home, he joined a local veterinarian team in his home town.
While working in Scottsdale, Dr. Esposito discovered the benefits of ultrasound in private practice. At that time, he was fortunate to have an opportunity to work at a busy practice where ultrasound was extensively utilized. One of the doctors was an instructor for the Academy of Veterinary Imaging and mentored Dr. Esposito daily.
Since that first experience, he has completed over 200 hours of abdominal and cardiac ultrasound training at the Academy of Veterinary Imaging in Arlington, TX. His experience and training has allowed him to complete more than 3000 ultrasound studies, and enabled him to become an ultrasound lab instructor at the Academy of Veterinary imaging too.
In 2015 Dr. Esposito started providing mobile ultrasound consultations for NJ Mobile up until 2018. He had also owned and operated a busy mobile companion animal practice in Hunterdon County, NJ before moving to Granbury, TX in 2018. Through his teaching, volume of ultrasound studies, and continued private practice, he brings up to date diagnostics with a practical approach.
Dr. Esposito loves being a veterinarian because it allows him to be involved in a variety of medical disciplines while teaching, assisting, and comforting animals and their families. His knowledge of pharmacology and physiology, in both veterinary and human medicine, allows him to easily explain and discuss diseases and treatments with pet owners. He strives to provide pet owners with a better understanding of their pets’ medical conditions. He believes this understanding leads to healthier pets and happier family members.
When he is not working, he is an active outdoorsman who enjoys hiking, boating, skiing, kayaking, hunting, and fishing. He also enjoys leading a healthy lifestyle and stays active training for Tough Mudders, fun runs, and other competitive events. He appreciates quality time with family and friends, and he enjoys traveling locally and internationally when time permits.
