DSC_0356Dr. Todd Eric Driggers grew up in a rural Indiana town where loving animals became his passion for providing medical care for them. He has started by caring for his pet dogs and cats as a boy and progressed to exotic pets such as a pet turtle named Tippy. Dr. Driggers was admitted to the Purdue University School of Veterinary Medicine after just two years of undergraduate at Purdue due to his obvious commitment to the profession demonstrated by his volunteerism and job at a small animal hospital in Indiana.

After graduating he began working exclusively with exotic animals at the Avian And Exotic Animal Clinic in Indianapolis and eventually moved to Arizona where he started an exotic practice at Mesa Veterinary Hospital. He started a mobile practice “Foothills Mobile Exotic DVM” in 1997 and changed the hospital name to the “Avian and Exotic Animal Clinic of Arizona”. He has spoken nationally and internationally at the Association of Avian Veterinary Conferences, Association of Reptilian and Amphibian Veterinary Conferences and the Association of Exotic Mammal Veterinarian Veterinary Conferences and written several chapters in various peer reviewed journals and books. Dr. Driggers has vacations in places to view and learn about the wildlife that he treats at the office.

The Animal Behavior Center
"Visiting The Animal Behavior Center was like a breath of fresh air. Her passion and dedication for providing outstanding care to her animals was reflected in literally every inch of her center. Without a doubt, she has gone above and beyond to ensure that her animals are never without both mental and physical enrichment. The level of care that she provides for her animals should be the standard. While I was at the center, I had the privilege of watching Lara train her animals and mine and it is clear that she is an exceptionally talented trainer. Every interaction she has with her animals, formal training session or not, is flexible and focused on creating an environment in which they are comfortable and empowered.
As a future veterinary behaviorist, I aspire to reach Lara's level of finesse, expertise, and thoughtfulness in every aspect of animal training and husbandry. She is truly in it for the animals."
