Dr. Brad Singleton is a graduate of Louisiana State University where he earned his Bachelor’s degree and then attended the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine to earn his doctorate. During veterinary school, he was an active member in many organizations. He served as president for Wildlife, Avian, Zoo, and Exotic Medicine, and was a Senior Co-Chair for the Raptor and Wildlife Rehabilitation Unit. He was author and co-author of multiple research articles included in major peer-reviewed publications and spent his free time volunteering at a nature center. One of his most rewarding experiences was volunteering to assist pets that were victims of Hurricane Katrina and their owners.
Brad’s ambitions to own and manage his own veterinary practice were affirmed when he won the Simmons and Associates’ “National Business Aptitude Award” in 2007. After graduating, Brad practiced as an associate veterinarian in Las Vegas, NV for the first two years of his professional career. At Sunridge Animal Hospital he was one of eight veterinarians who contributed to this highly successful, fast-paced practice. He gained a reputation for being very personable and taking the time to educate clients on his/her pet’s health. He was also known for being willing to see non-traditional pets such as reptiles, amphibians, pocket pets, and even helped manage the health of Las Vegas’ famous show animals. He then worked at a busy two doctor practice in the heart of South Austin. As an associate veterinarian at this practice, he has gained experience with orthopedic surgeries while continuing to practice high-quality medicine on a variety of species.
In his free time, Brad enjoys spending time with his family and his own pets. He especially enjoys hiking, disc golf, and experiencing the many outdoor activities this great city has to offer.
