Our Veterinarians are part of a dedicated and knowledgeable team that includes our Veterinary Technicians, Assistants and Receptionists. Together they bring generations worth of combined experience in veterinary care.

Dr. Christine Morlino DVM

Dr. Morlino at Short Pump Animal Hospital

Animals have always been a part of my family. Love of animals and my absolute fascination with biology and medicine led me to fulfil 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 care taking 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. Christine Morlino received her undergraduate degree from the University of Virginia in 1993 and her veterinary degree from the VA-MD Regional College of Veterinary Medicine in 1997.

Originally from Williamsburg, she has lived and practiced in the Richmond area for the last 20 years. Her special interests include geriatric medicine, dentistry, exotic animals and client education. As the owner of Short Pump Animal Hospital, she is particularly proud of the family atmosphere and pleased to be an integral part of the local community.

Dr. Morlino and her husband, Joe, have three children, 2 dogs (Jodi and Molly), several goats and sheep and a Sicilian donkey named Giovanni. During her time off she enjoys hiking, traveling, spending time with friends and family and volunteering at her church and in the community.


Dr. Honora "Nonie" Reger

Dr. Honora at Short Pump Vet

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.

Dr. Reger is a graduate of the College of William and Mary with a bachelor of science in biology and Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine with Highest Honors. Her clinical year was spent at Louisiana State University.

Dr. Reger has been working in the greater Richmond area for the past three and a half years. Her special interests include improving the human-animal bond, internal medicine, and soft tissue surgery.

Dr. Reger was born in Virginia and grew up in Norfolk and Hanover. She enjoys traveling, spending time outside and enjoying free time with her husband and her pets, a cat named Paddington and a dog named Kanga.


Dr. Austin Wigley

Dr. Wigley at Short Pump Vet

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.


Dr. Sarah Traylor

Dr. Traylor at Short Pump Vet

Dr. Sarah Traylor is the newest Associate Veterinarian with Short Pump Animal Hospital. Dr. Traylor received her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2022 from Lincoln Memorial University College of Veterinary Medicine. She did one year of clinical rotations at 11 different veterinary and specialty centers, and has a professional interest in ultrasound/radiology, surgery, and client education. Dr. Traylor also received her Fear Free Certification, Companion Laser Certification, and Basic & Advanced CPR Certification.

Starting off as a veterinary assistant in 2011, Dr. Traylor then went on to become a Licensed Veterinary Technician in 2015. She has always had a passion for caring for animals, and she loves that she is able to help her patients each day and bring comfort to their owners.

Dr. Traylor was born and raised in Glen Allen, Virginia. She resides here with her 4-year-old cat named Flynn, who she rescued before veterinary school. Just like a dog would, Flynn loves to go on walks, swim, and hang his head out the window during car rides! When Dr. Traylor is outside of work, she enjoys spending time with friends and family, hiking, scuba diving, kayaking, traveling, and going to concerts.
