Dr. Caitlin Cunningham, DVM
Dr. Caitlin Cunningham grew up in Florida where she was always outside catching frogs and snakes. In high school, she got her first reptile, a bearded dragon named Spaz, who sparked her love for exotic pets. You can even find a picture of Spaz on her stethoscope! Throughout undergraduate school at Bowling Green State University and veterinary school at Ohio State University, she has rescued 3 other bearded dragons (Lizzy, Daisy, and Lucky), 2 ball pythons (Serleena and Beau), a rat (Cheeze-It), a pink toe tarantula (Fluffy), a crested gecko (Pegleg), a gargoyle gecko (Jumper), 3 rabbits (Eeyore, Cinnabun, and Bunjamin), a leopard gecko (Snooki) and 13 zebra finches!
Her passion most definitely lies in all animals furry, feathered, scaled, and slimy! She even founded an exotic animal student organization at OSU to help encourage other veterinary students to learn about all these amazing creatures. She worked in wildlife rehabilitation during her time in undergraduate school and as a veterinary assistant at a small and exotic animal hospital throughout veterinary school. Her other professional passions include wildlife rehabilitation and shelter medicine/TNR programs. Dr. Cunningham completed an internship at AZEAH and is currently in her residency training toward board certificant in Reptile and Amphibian Medicine.
Outside of veterinary medicine, she enjoys hiking, crocheting, tea, and yoga.
