Dr. Christine Santos

Principal Veterinarian

Dr. Christine Santos, a proud native of Central Texas, spent her formative years on a cozy family ranch in Burnet. It was there that she cultivated a profound affection for tending to creatures of all sizes. After earning a Bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Science with a minor in Spanish from Texas A&M University, her passion led her to pursue a Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine, which she successfully attained in 2015.

Following her graduation, Dr. Santos devoted her career predominantly to the care of beloved pets. However, she eventually fulfilled her dream of owning her own clinic. In this role, she is unwavering in her commitment to delivering exceptional care. To her, every patient who walked through her clinic’s doors was not just a case to diagnose and treat but a cherished member of her extended fur family.

Beyond her professional life, Dr. Santos has a zest for exploration, often participating in international veterinary aid initiatives whenever her schedule allows. In her personal domain, she is a mother to two lively little girls and two loyal canine companions who complete her world. Her diverse array of interests includes the world of painting, the realm of literature, the adventure of hiking, and the thrill of travel.

In the tale of Dr. Christine Santos, Central Texas serves as the backdrop, but her life is a canvas painted with a love for animals, a thirst for adventure, and an unwavering commitment to making the world a better place, one furry friend at a time.

Dr. Jonathon Miller


Dr. Jonathon Miller graduated with honors from Louisiana State University in 2010 with a Bachelor of Science degree in animal science with dual minors in biology and chemistry. He went on to receive his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Texas A&M University in 2014.

After graduating, Dr. Miller moved to the Austin area with his wife, and began practicing in the Burnet area. Since then, he has continued to practice in the north and central Austin areas with experience ranging from overnight critical care to routine wellness visits. Though he is comfortable providing care in most all situations, his primary interests include soft tissue surgery and dentistry. He is always in pursuit of more knowledge and expanding his skills with regards to these interests as well as general practice.

When not providing care to those patients great and small, Dr. Miller spends time with his wife and their newborn son. He enjoys running with his two dogs Oddball and Looney Tunes, as well as rock climbing, obstacle course racing, and reading. Recently, though not a professional cinephile, he has spent more time at home watching movies with his wife while they both care for their adorable son.
