Story Summary

If you need to see a man about a horse in Platte City it's likely folks will direct you to Dr. Kent Jackson, equine veterinarian and founder of the Jackson Animal Clinic. "If you see Doc Jackson's eyes widen you know you're in trouble.” says long-time client Garland Killian. “He's seen everything." This is hardly an exaggeration. Dr. Jackson has been practicing veterinary medicine in Platte City for 36 years, gently tending to the health of the horses while imparting medical wisdom to their owners.
