Dr. India Wood has been a member of the VSC family since the age of 15. Starting in the kennel and now as a member of the Surgical Referral team, Dr. Wood has demonstrated passion for preserving the quality of life and patient care. She takes great pride in her ability to communicate details to her clients, which better allows them to make informed decisions.

Veterinary Medicine

“When I was 15 years old my dog was taken to VSC for a leg injury. I remember being mesmerized by the medicine and the atmosphere and soon began working in the kennel in order to get more exposure. I later moved into an assistant technician position so that I could be more involved with the surgical aspect of the hospital. From there, I worked at VSCthroughout high school and continued during my college and veterinary school vacations.”

Improving the Quality of Life

“As a veterinarian, the quality of life of our patients is the number one priority. Caring for the patient requires making sure that they are as comfortable as possible and that their quality of life is preserved. My meaning of preserving their quality of life is making sure that they are as healthy and functional as possible, given the resources that we have available to us.”

The “Can” and “Should” in Patient Care

“Exceptional patient care is really listening to the clients and taking the whole patient into consideration, not just the immediate problem. There are many things that we “CAN” do to treat our patients, but we always have to consider what we “SHOULD” do for them.”

Outside of Veterinary Medicine

“I enjoy spending time with my dogs, my husband and my daughters. I also enjoy reading and walking. Pre-baby, my husband and I enjoyed traveling outside of the United States.

"Dr. Wood is excellent.  She took her time examining our cat as she is very skittish. She treated our cat as a pet, not just an animal. We know our Adalyn was in good hands with all staff at VSC. She is healing well from her surgery and we know she was made very comfortable during her stay. I am appreciative that I could call for an update at any time. Thank you for all that you do!" ~ Heather
