Dr. Vince Nguyen-The

Clinical Director

Dr. Vince Nguyen-The grew up in the French-speaking part of Switzerland and was exposed to various animals at a young age, including cats, dogs, and farm animals.

He then moved to California and graduated from UC Davis in 2003, completing his bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry and Molecular biology.

After working for a small biotechnology company, his interest in animal care led him to Western University of Health Sciences, where he earned his DVM degree in 2011.

He then pursued a one-year internship in emergency medicine before joining a general small animal hospital in San Diego. In 2017, Dr. Nguyen-The moved to North Austin with his family and continued to provide excellent veterinary care to the community. Dr. Nguyen-The is a fierce advocate of preventive care to enhance pets’ health and wellbeing. He has a strong interest in nutrition, internal medicine, and dermatology.

In 2020, Dr. Nguyen-The moved back to Northern California to be closer to his extended family.
