Our Story & Our Team



Dedicated to your satisfaction


Tim & Barbara Jackson founded Animal Health Express in 1990.  Their backgrounds in ranching, cattle feeding and the pharmaceutical industry made them aware of the need for livestock owners to have easy access to top quality products, information and services.  Their goal then was the same as it is today:  "To provide quality animal health, livestock, equine & pet supplies at a competitive price with excellence in customer service".

Animal Health Express is the catalog (print and on-line) mail order company which originally began in a warehouse on the west side of Tucson.  Customer demand for a store outlet led to the opening of Vaquero Feed & Livestock Supply in 2002 - a full service farm and ranch supply store.  The product line has expanded over the years to a total one-stop supply store with livestock and equine handling equipment, corrals, panels, sacked feed and hay and the best selection in Southern Arizona of Western tack and animal health products.
