Savita Wadhwani, DVM
Hi. I am the owner of our clinics. I was born in India. My family immigrated to the United States in 1976 when I was 11 years old. Since then, Texas has been my home. I did my undergraduate education at Texas A & M University and received my veterinary degree from the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine in 1990. I moved to Austin, Texas to practice medicine. After working as an associate veterinarian for 2 years, I purchased the clinics from the previous owner. You may see my cat “Little Kitty” running around the clinic from time to time.
