Dr. Gallagher is one of our exotics vets, happy to care for any of your furry, feathered or scaly friends. He is a native of Reston, VA and attended the University of Virginia for undergraduate studies. Prior to attending vet school, he was engaged in research involving the study of snake venoms, and the genetic basis of psychological disorders such as schizophrenia, and has published several research articles on these and other topics. After graduating from Virginia Tech’s Vet School, he worked in Roanoke for 5 years honing his skills with birds, small mammals, reptiles and other exotics, and is thrilled to now be working closer to home. Dr. Gallagher has been living in Blacksburg since 2005 with his 3 beautiful children, a handful of furry companions, and his lovely girlfriend.
