Tristan J. Graf, DVM
Dr. Tristan grew up in Marlow, Oklahoma, and was destined to be a veterinarian. He followed in the footsteps of his father, Dr. Lyndon Graf, who started Marlow Veterinary Clinic. He attended Tabor College for the first two years of his undergraduate education, then transferred to Oklahoma State University for the remainder of his undergraduate training. Dr. Tristan was accepted into the Oklahoma State University College of Veterinary Medicine after only three years of undergraduate work, and received his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Degree in spring of 2004.
While at OSU, Tristan met his wife, Dr. Kathy Graf, who is also a veterinarian. They both worked at small animal hospitals in Idaho and then Iowa, before returning to Oklahoma in 2011. Dr. Tristan's special interests in veterinary medicine include small animal dentistry and surgery.
Dr. Tristan has many hobbies, including hunting, golf, fishing, camping, and woodworking. He enjoys spending time with his wife and their pets, which include a German Shorthaired Pointer (Pistol Pete) and two awesome cats (Grizwald and Jax). In the fall and winter months he can typically be found in a tree stand when he is not busy working at the clinic.
