    Dr. Edward W. Gross Jr.

    Owner / Veterinarian
    I received a Bachelor of Science from UGA in 1972, then graduated from College of Veterinary Medicine in 1976.  I then moved to Augusta in Feb. 1977 to join staff at Aidmore Animal Clinic.  I became co-owner in 1980, and full owner in 1985.  I began practicing at Care More in Feb 1998.  My main interests are in small animal medicine and surgery.  However orthopedics, dentistry, and exotics are my favorite specialties.  My family includes wife (Karen) and two children (Stephanie and Robby).  At this present time I have 10 chihuahuas, 2 Australian cattle dogs, and a golden retriever.  I also have 6 cats, as well as horses and goats.  I am also a black belt in TaeKwonDo.
