Our Veterinarians

Meet the folks who make it all happen. We see big potential in every moment, and care deeply about what we do every day.

Warren Franklin, DVM

Practice Owner/Veterinarian

Dr. Warren Franklin was raised in rural eastern New Mexico in the small village of House.  It was on his family’s home ranch that he developed a love and respect for all animals. After graduation from House High School, Dr. Franklin went on to earn a Bachelor of Science Degree in Animal Science from New Mexico State University which he recalls, served as his ‘ticket to get into vet school at Colorado State University’ where he attained his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Degree in 1987.

In addition to operating his own small and large animal practice, Franklin serves as the attending veterinarian for Sierra Blanca Equine in Ruidoso Downs, as well as several farms and ranches throughout Lincoln County, NM and beyond.  His interest in veterinary medicine has also led to the business of breeding and racing his own horses.

In his (limited) free time, Dr. Franklin enjoys sports including calf roping, basketball and snowboarding in addition to spending time with his own horses.  As a family man, Franklin can also be found with his children, Dusti, Brand, Sky, Jab, Lat and his six grandchildren.  Dr. Franklin’s eldest son, Court, was an engineering student at Baylor University when he was tragically killed in an accident in Waco, Texas in 2007.  Court Franklin is missed and will be remembered; always.

Dr. Brunson

Connie Brunson, DVM

Associate Veterinarian

A graduate of Texas A&M University, Dr. Brunson has been resolving small animal medical and surgical care for the past 35 years. She moved to Ruidoso to be closer to her family and worked across the state of Texas prior to that.

As an Associate Veterinarian at Franklin Veterinary Clinic, Dr. Brunson is grateful for the opportunity to help keep both our canine and feline friends healthy as well as their pet parents happy!

In her free time, Dr. Brunson enjoys traveling, gardening, sewing and curling up on the couch with a good book!
