Dr. Lisa M. Wiggins

Veterinarian, Owner

Dr. Wiggins moved to the Capital District from Tennessee in 2002, a couple of years after graduating from the University of Tennessee, College of Veterinary Medicine. She worked for a large local practice for many years prior to purchasing her own practice. One of her medical interests and expertise involves allergies and how they cause systemic disease. She is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) as well as the state and local veterinary associations. She has a great cat, Stanley that enjoys spending time lounging in the cat condo room in the window or in his outdoor enclosure watching the birds fly by. The love of her life is pictured here and was a tricolor King Charles Cavalier named Freckles who went to the Rainbow bridge in August 2011. (If you ask the staff, they would say he was the real owner of 4 Paws Veterinary Care!) She spends her free time enjoying hobbies such as sailing, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, cooking, gardening, and going to the ocean as often as possible.
