Dr. Michael Lavigne III
Although born in California, Dr. Lavigne was raised in New Orleans, Louisiana. As a child, he and his family had a variety of pets- from dogs, to reptiles to horses. This early exposure to animals created in Dr. Lavigne a love of animals that has not only endured a lifetime, but has also led him to a very rewarding career in veterinary medicine.
He attended Xavier University in New Orleans, where he and his wife Anne met as students, completing his undergraduate studies in Biology. It was during this time that he made the choice to minor in Pre-Veterinary studies and pursue a career in veterinary medicine. Upon completion of his undergraduate studies, Dr. Lavigne attended Tuskegee University in Alabama where earned his DVM in 2007.
Dr. Lavigne began his career practicing as an associate veterinarian at an animal hospital in Las Vegas. Here he enjoyed providing quality medical service to his patients and connected with his clients because of his comprehensive and compassionate care. After several years of practice, Dr. Lavigne made the decision along with his two partners, Dr. Blue and Dr. Ross, to open a veterinary facility and relocate their families to Houston. The decision to open Cy-Fair Animal Hospital has only added to Dr. Lavigne’s love for the practice of veterinary medicine by allowing him and his partners to share a practice and share the love of their profession, all while providing their clients with outstanding veterinary medical care.
Dr. Lavigne enjoys all aspects of general practice, however, as it relates to special interests within the field, he finds soft tissue surgery and emergency medicine to be some of the most interesting and rewarding work.
Away from work Dr. Lavigne enjoys the company of his wife Anne and his two children. Together they enjoy activities like fishing, golfing, hiking, camping or entertaining family and friends. He and his family share their lives with a Schnauzer mix dog named Woody, French Bulldog named Yama and a new addition to the family– a cat named Sugi.
Sugi came into Cy-Fair Animal Hospital as an emergency surgery rescue patient after she was injured by a car motor as a kitten. After performing an emergency surgery on her, having to amputate both of the front legs, Dr. Lavigne and his wife decided to adopt Sugi and give her a loving home. Sugi is short for “Kintsugi,” a style of Japanese art where the cracks of a broken piece of pottery are mended with gold making it even more beautiful.
