James Norwood Bryan, DVM

James Norwood Bryan had the same aspirations as his father and grandfather and graduated from Auburn University School of Veterinary Medicine in 1986. Norwood practiced his first two years with Dr. Barry Nichols of Anniston, during which time he met Kathy Carver. They married in August 1987 and moved to Decatur. After practicing for three years with his father, Norwood bought the practice in 1990.


The Bryan family has a tradition of caring for animals. William Bryan graduated from Auburn University in 1916 and practiced with his brother, Monroe Bryan, for several years. He and his wife had seven children, one of whom was William James 'Bud' Bryan. William Bryan was killed in an automobile accident when 'Bud' was twelve years old.


Dr. Bryan followed in his father's footsteps and graduated from Auburn University School of Veterinary Medicine in 1957. After practicing with another veterinarian for fifteen years, he started Bryan Animal Clinic.

Our services include:

Dr Jeff English received his DVM from Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine in

1984. He practiced briefly in Washington state, then entered the U.S. Army Veterinary Corps.


Some of his duties in the military included running clinical services in Yokosuka, Japan, FortLewis, Washington, and El Paso, Texas, and he completed a three year residency in Veterinary Pathology at the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology, Walter Reed, and a preceptorship in Zoologic Pathology at The National Zoologic Park, Washington, DC. He retired from the Army and joined Bryan Animal Clinic in 2001.


Dr English and his wife, Elizabeth have two adult children, and are becoming used to being "empty nesters". They share their lives with Abbie, a geriatric cat, Willa, a German Shorthaired Pointer, and Karma, a newly rescued Lab-mix.


Outside of small animal practice, Dr English enjoys SCUBA diving, hiking, photography, and pursuing upland birds and waterfowl with his partner, Willa.
