Learn Who We Are

  • Christine Morlino
    DVM
    “Animals have always been a part of my family. Love of animals and my absolute fascination with biology and medicine led me to fulfill my childhood dream of becoming a veterinarian. As a scientist I love the challenge of using exam findings, advanced diagnostics and listening carefully to owners to determine what may be ailing a pet and what we can do to help. I enjoy educating owners and helping them be an integral part of their pet’s caretaking team. As a veterinarian of 20 years, my greatest joy is to help pets and their owners live happy lives together. At Short Pump Animal Hospital, I have the added joy of working where clients, pets and staff are like family for each other.”
  • Dr.
    Honora Reger
    DVM
    “I decided to become a veterinarian because of my passion for animals and a strong interest in science. As a practicing veterinarian I love having the opportunity to educate people and to give them more confidence in caring for their pets. I find it especially rewarding to see animals feel better after successful treatment and to help people through the stressful times they may experience with their beloved pets. At Short Pump Animal Hospital, I have the freedom and resources I need to work closely with our clients and to practice the highest quality medicine. I’m very grateful to be working in an environment where everyone is passionate about what we do.”
  • Austin Wigley
    DVM

    Dr. Wigley is originally from the eastern shore of Maryland and became interested in veterinary medicine after developing a close bond with his childhood dog, a lab-mix named Jessie. He earned his Bachelor of Science degree from Duke University in 2013 and his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine in 2017. Observing the incredible relationship between pet owners and their pets is Dr. Wigley's favorite part of being a veterinarian, and he is looking forward to preserving these relationships through his work. His professional interests include internal medicine, behavior, dermatology, and preventative medicine. Once a month Dr. Wigley volunteers with Operation Catnip, a trap-neuter-return organization that helps reduce the overpopulation of feral and stray cats by spaying and neutering. Outside of work, Dr. Wigley enjoys playing soccer, exploring Richmond with friends, traveling with family, supporting his favorite sports' teams (Duke basketball, Arsenal, and the US national soccer team) and walking his yellow lab Cameron.

Testimonials

Read What Our Clients Say

    Wow! Thanks to all the staff. I feel like you all truly love what you do! My kitty, Lola and I always have such a pleasant experience when we come in. Fortunately, it’s usually just for a check-up, but I would not leave Lola in anyone else’s hands but yours. Thank you for your caring commitment
