Eric Wright

After completing his undergraduate studies at University of Michigan, Dr. Wright graduated from University of Wisconsin Veterinary School in 2016 and completed a one-year rotating internship at an emergency and specialty hospital outside of Chicago, IL. Having worked and trained mostly in the emergency setting, he has a special interest in emergency medicine and being there when pets (and owners) need him most.

Dr. Wright says, “I always held a deep love for animals but did not always know I wanted to be a veterinarian. From an early age I was able to experience the human-animal bond. I have only come to realize more and more just how valuable that connection is.” Dr. Wright considered both human and veterinary medicine, but having made the decision to become a veterinarian, he is glad to have chosen a career where he now helps both. His goal is to work with owners and their pets to achieve the best possible outcome for all parties involved.

He is excited to be back in the Ann Arbor area where he lives with his wife and their dog, Ollie. Ollie (a black lab/pitbull mix) has his own special connection to the AAAH, as Eric adopted him over six years ago from the hospital after he was relinquished here as a stray. (See Ollie’s story here!)
