Dr. Margaret Wright - Veterinarian


I attribute my love and respect for animals to growing up on a family-run dairy farm which was run solely by my parents and 4 brothers.

I was totally inspired in choosing a career in veterinary medicine after watching our large animal veterinarian come out to the farm to provide not only medical treatments but also preventative herd health care. I knew that one day I wanted to help provide medical care for ill pets that are depending on us to bring them to better health.

Here at Seventy-First Animal Hospital, I treat cats, dogs, birds, reptiles, and other exotic pets. I have a special interest in laser surgery, dentistry, and senior health care.

Danny, my husband, and I share our home with our pets, a standard poodle named Coco, an American Spaniel named Neeses, and a toy poodle named Remi. We also have a cat, Jasmine, and a Moluccan Cockatoo named Peaches. I love spending time in my garden and trail riding.
