Dr. Michelle Nelligan - Veterinarian
Dr. Michelle Nelligan is an associate veterinarian here at St. Bernard’s Animal Hospital, joining our team with over 10 years of veterinary experience.
Dr. Nelligan is a native Floridian and a 2005 graduate of the University of Florida. After graduation, she completed a one-year internship in Small Animal Medicine, Surgery, and Emergency Medicine at the University of Florida then practiced for 3 years in Shreveport, Louisiana, and eventually made her way back to Florida after a one-year stop in Dallas, Texas. Not being content with the traditional medical and surgical tools available to help pets, she pursued and completed Small Animal Acupuncture training at the Chi Institute of TCVM in 2013.
Dr. Nelligan strives to incorporate holistic and alternative options whenever available including pet acupuncture. Outside the animal clinic, Dr. Nelligan is spending time with her three children. Her oldest son is active in soccer and chorus/theater. Her middle son loves to play basketball and Minecraft. Her youngest daughter plays soccer and loves the mussels at Carrabba's! Their family is rounded out by two rescue cats Frick and Frack. In her rare free time, Dr. Nelligan enjoys the beautiful Florida coastline.
