Our Doctor


Dr. Lott, a native of East Texas, attended Texas A&M University where he received two Bachelor of Science degrees—one in animal science and one in veterinary science. He also attended veterinary school at Texas A&M and graduated with honors from the College of Veterinary Medicine in 1995. Upon graduation, he began mixed animal practice at Ward Animal Hospital in Nacogdoches. He later moved to Southwood Drive Animal Clinic in Lufkin, Texas where he also practiced veterinary medicine on numerous species. In 2000, he took a position at Pearland Animal Hospital in Pearland, Texas where he focused exclusively on small animal medicine and surgery. He also worked as a relief veterinarian at multiple Pet’s Choice 24-hour emergency hospitals in the Houston area. In July of 2002, he and his wife, Stephanie, purchased Appleby Sand Road Animal Clinic and moved their family back to Nacogdoches.

Dr. Lott uses a practical, analytical approach to medicine to diagnose his patients and makes every effort to effectively communicate with his clients about their pet’s health.

Our Staff


Amanda has been a part of our team at Appleby Sand Road Animal Clinic for almost 6 years. She graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in pre-pharmacy and a minor in combined sciences and math. Amanda has worked in the pharmaceutical industry and she has completed her Certified Veterinary Assistant certification. When she has free time, Amanda loves exploring local trails, watching movies, and snapping thousands of pictures of her son Ian. Ian is her number one, but her dachshunds, Penny and Bailey, and her corgi, Sascha, all come in for a close second.


Hunter was born and raised here in Nacogdoches.  When she began high school, she joined the Future Farmers of America organization and devoted her spare time to raising and showing pigs. In 2011, her junior year, she joined the team at Appleby Sand Road Animal Clinic, and has become a seasoned technician.  Since then, she has fallen in love with the lifestyle, and she continues to grow her own furry family at her farm.  Currently that includes: two horses – Moon and Gus, Dolly the mini horse, a flock of chickens, and two dogs, Annie and Paisley.


Megan hails from Chicago, Illinois. After a stint as a combat medic in the Army, she decided to go to college and become a veterinary technician. Her vet tech career began in 2010 at a 24-hour emergency clinic in Hawaii. In 2012, she moved to East Texas to be near her husband’s family.  Megan is happy to have found a place that feels like home at Appleby Sand Road Animal Clinic.   When she is not at the clinic, she is spending time with her husband, her 3 kids, and a variety of pets on her farm.


CiCi grew up in the Pineywoods of East Texas.  She completed her schooling in the DFW area, but returned to her roots as soon as she could.  She quickly found her passion being a veterinary technician, and has been blessed with more than 5 years pursuing what she loves.  When she is not at the clinic, she is creating memories with her husband, her son, and their three dogs.


Kassidy is a veterinary technician and a senior at Stephen F. Austin State University. She joined our team in September of 2014 after moving to Nacogdoches from Austin to study Animal Science at SFA. She will be graduating in May of 2017. She has been involved in animal care for almost seven years now. She has interned at a veterinary clinic in Austin as well as volunteering at the animal shelter and wildlife sanctuary. She was a kennel tech as her first job and then moved on to be a caretaker for 200 baby deer at a high fenced deer ranch.  When she is not at the clinic she spends most of her time studying, fishing or hunting. She has a Yellow Lab/Great Pyrenees named Buck, whom she adores. She loves animals and is grateful to have found her passion in life at such a young age. Her job is even more enjoyable because she works with the wonderful team here at Appleby Sand Road Animal Clinic!


Taylor is currently a Business major at Stephen F. Austin State University.  She loves the Lott family, and is thrilled to be our receptionist here at Appleby Sand Road Animal Clinic.  Taylor loves her two cats, Kris and Princess, and also nachos, naps, and all things sparkly.  Though squirrels are her favorite, she’ll still enjoy meeting your cat or dog the next time you come visit us!


My name is Cecil.   I have been a clinic cat at other places, but I was always bullied about my folded ears, so I was never very happy.  That’s why my face is chronically in this “anger pose”.  But I am really happy here because they do not judge me about being Scottish, or having folded ears (you know you didn’t choose your parents well either!!).

I have promoted myself to office director.  I choose the chairs that people are allowed to sit in and when they can sit there.  It’s a really cool job.  Sometimes at night, I practice typing on the keyboards so one day I can be completely in charge here at the clinic.

When you come visit us, I will come up and talk to you.  Everyone seems to think I am saying, “please scratch me”, but I’m actually speaking Gaelic!  If I’m not roaming about when you arrive, I’m probably in the office where I like to pretend to be sick so everyone will love on me.  I can’t wait to see you at our clinic!
