Dr. Carrie Vigeant, Founder of Healing Paws

The reason Dr. Vigeant became a veterinarian is the same reason that Healing Paws Animal Hospital exists.

“My commitment to you and your pet is to deliver compassionate veterinary care and to create a loving and caring judgment-free zone for your well-being.”

Carrie Vigeant, D.V.M.

Dr. Vigeant is a mother to three boys, entrepreneur, wife, and foodie.
