Austin Wigley

DVM

Dr. Wigley is originally from the eastern shore of Maryland and became interested in veterinary medicine after developing a close bond with his childhood dog, a lab-mix named Jessie. He earned his Bachelor of Science degree from Duke University in 2013 and his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine in 2017. Observing the incredible relationship between pet owners and their pets is Dr. Wigley's favorite part of being a veterinarian, and he looks to foster and preserve these relationships through his work. His professional interests include internal medicine, behavior, dermatology, and preventative medicine.

Once a month Dr. Wigley volunteers with Operation Catnip, a trap-neuter-return organization that helps reduce the overpopulation of feral and stray cats by spaying and neutering. Outside of work, Dr. Wigley enjoys spending his free time with his fiancée, playing soccer, exploring Richmond with friends, traveling with family, supporting his favorite sports' teams (Duke basketball, Arsenal, and the US national soccer team) and walking his yellow lab Cameron.
