Dr. Christine Cao

Born and raised in Houston, TX, Dr. Christine Cao has always had a special bond with animals from an early age. She began her pursuit of veterinary medicine by obtaining an Ecology, Evolutionary and Behavioral Biology degree from the University of Texas at Austin.  While in school, Dr. Cao was a research assistant, biology and chemistry tutor, and spent her free time volunteering at the Austin Humane Society.  Dr. Cao completed her veterinary degree at Texas A&M and swiftly made her way back to Austin where she joined Austin Vet Hospital in 2012. In 2017, she became the medical director at Century Animal Hospital.  At Century AH, Dr. Cao expanded her veterinary knowledge to include small animal reproduction, commonly performing progesterone testing, trans-vaginal and surgical artificial inseminations, as well as C-sections. After two years at Century AH, she returned to Austin Vet Hospital in 2019 to continue her veterinary practice.

Dr. Cao strongly believes that her life has been enhanced by practicing all aspects of veterinary medicine, but feels a particular connection to internal medicine, client education, preventative care, and helping to strengthen the human-animal bond.  Dr. Cao also serves on the One Health committee of the Texas Veterinary Medical Association (TVMA), and is a member of the Capital Area Veterinary Medical Association and American Veterinary Medical Association.  She volunteers her services with TVMA’s Pets Assisting the Lives of Seniors program of Meals on Wheels and the Street Dog Coalition.

Dr. Cao shares her Hyde Park home with her husband, young son, and a rescue dog and rescue cat.  When not at work, she enjoys Muay Thai kickboxing, cooking, recipe developing, hiking around town, or watching a movie at the Alamo Drafthouse.
