Brad Singleton is from southwest Louisiana originally, and attended Louisiana State University for both undergraduate studies and to earn his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine. After graduation, he worked for 2 years in a busy exotic and small animal practice in Las Vegas, Nevada, before deciding Austin was the best place to call home.
Dr. Singleton’s professional interests include non-traditional pets, surgery, and dermatology. Very early in his career, Dr. Singleton gained a reputation for his laid-back, personable demeanor and for his dedication to fully educate pet owners about their pet's health.
When Dr. Singleton set out to start a veterinary clinic, he wanted something different than what he had personally experienced. He envisioned a practice that took time to educate clients on the issues their pets experienced, as the pet parent is ultimately the care giver. He feels that clients are better able to make important decisions regarding their pet's care once they have been thoroughly educated on the options and have had all of their questions answered.
He also wanted a place that did not feel like a traditional veterinary clinic. Animals are in tune with much more than we realize, and they can often pick up on the things that make a veterinary hospital a scary place for them. Creating an environment that feels like visiting a friend’s home and taking an individualized approach to reducing stress for each patient has been a constant theme in the veterinary hospitals he has created. Dr. Singleton attributes the success of his hospitals to the amazing teams that carry out this vision each day and the clients who share in the goals of creating the best life for their pets.
He is married to Alisha, who helped found South Park Animal Hospital in 2011 and has 2 sons ages 7 and 4. They share their home with their 3 rescued dogs, two adopted bunnies, a snake, and a crawfish. In his free time, Dr. Singleton enjoys tending his yard and outdoor adventures with his family and pups.
