Dr. Andrew Faist
Dr. Andrew Faist grew up on a family farm in Welcome, Texas, where he always enjoyed helping the veterinarians that would visit the farm to treat livestock. He’s looked up to veterinarians ever since he was a young boy—Dr. Faist was only six years old when he decided that he, too, would one day help the earth’s creatures through the power of medicine! He’s proud to serve as one of Fairfield Animal Hospital’s Associate Veterinarians.
Dr. Faist began his undergraduate education at Blinn College in Brenham, Texas before transferring to Texas A&M University. He earned his veterinary degree from Texas A&M’s College of Veterinary Medicine in 2004, and started working at a small-animal practice in Katy, Texas that same year. Next, Dr. Faist moved on to a hospital in the Pecan Grove area in 2015 before signing on with the Fairfield Animal Hospital family in the spring of 2018.
Medically, Dr. Faist enjoys performing surgeries and using preventative care techniques to maintain his patients’ health over time. His favorite part of the job, though, is getting to interact one-on-one with pets and owners in the examination rooms. Dr. Faist’s professional affiliations include memberships in the American Veterinary Medical Association, the Texas Veterinary Medical Association, and the Harris County Veterinary Medical Association, and he’s also a proud member of the Coastal Conservation Association.
Aside from his interests in the world of animal care, Dr. Faist enjoys hunting and fishing, playing sports, and spending quality time with his family. He and his wife, Jennifer, have two children: Wyatt, who enjoys baseball, hunting, and fishing, and Claire, a lover of gymnastics and dancing.
