Wenatchee Valley Humane Society Lead Veterinarian Looks Forward to Serving Community


Dr. Vega
Dr. Nicole Vega, DVM, lead veterinarian for the Wenatchee Valley Humane Society (WVHS), is ready to continue serving the greater Wenatchee area through veterinary services provided at WVHS.
 
Vega accepted the position of WVHS Lead Veterinarian in the fall 2020 and began shortly after.  Born and raised in Lake Chelan, she moved back to the Wenatchee area in the summer of 2020 with her dog, Banjo, a 9-year-old English Springer Spaniel. 
 
Vega received her Bachelor of Science in Zoology with Pre-Vet specialization from Washington State University, where she also received her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine. 
 
Vega will lead the WVHS medical team as it launches the opening of the Wenatchee Valley Humane Society Veterinary Clinic later this month.  The Clinic will offer expanded Spay and Neuter services to income qualified community members to begin, and eventually expand to additional limited services to qualified pets.
 
“In my role as lead veterinarian, I am excited to continue developing and instituting medical protocols and standards that ensure shelter animals are getting high quality medical care at WVHS. In addition, as a non-profit veterinarian clinic, we can now provide services to income qualified pet owners,” Dr. Vega said. “While our current goal is providing affordable spay/neuter services, the long-term goal is to ensure that all pet owners have equal access to veterinary services.”     
 
Vega has been practicing as a small animal veterinarian for 4 years. Her fields of focus within veterinary medicine are soft-tissue surgery, dental surgery, and shelter medicine. She is a member in good standing with the Humane Society Veterinary Medical Association, Washington State Veterinary Medical Association, Portland Veterinary Medical Association, and American Veterinary Medical Association.
