Large Animal / Production Animals
Dr. Paul Whittington grew up in Lafayette, Louisiana where he attended Lafayette High School and University of Louisiana at Lafayette. During his high school and college years Dr. Paul worked with Dr. Prejean in Abbeville always dreaming of one day purchasing the clinic. He hoped to continue the intimate small town care while adding statewide services! After graduating from LSU School of Veterinary Medicine in 2008, he worked as a large breed and Cattle Vet in the Houma, Raceland and New Orleans areas of Louisiana.
In April 2009, he purchased the building and assets of Prejean Veterinary Clinic and instituted Whittington Veterinary Clinic. He hired his longtime friend and associate Dr. Casi Boudreaux to join him in the practice. Together Dr. Casi and Dr. Paul strive to provide Vermilion and surrounding parishes with top notch veterinary care from small breed to large breed (deer and cattle vet), with communication and compassion being the center that differentiates them from any other veterinary clinic.
Dr. Whittington enjoys all aspects of veterinary medicine, although due to high demand, has mainly concentrated in large animals. He is passionate toward companion animals, beef cattle, captive deer, and working horses ( large breed ). He aims to educate people by helping them to avoid major health issues with their large breed animals. Dr. Paul recently hired another great friend and colleague, Dr. Jacques Fuselier. Dr. Jacques will specialize in production animals and help allow Dr. Paul more time at the clinic for both small and large animals. Dr. Jacques is the only Board Certified Specialist in Production animals and Theriogenology in private practice in the State of Louisiana.
Dr. Whittington seeks to offer the highest level of veterinary medicine for his clients and referral clients from other veterinarians. He is married to Dr. Leslie Whittington, a dentist, who owns part of Abbeville Family Dental. They reside in Abbeville and have twin boys Chandler Richard and Charlie James who are the light of their lives! Dr. Paul’s hobbies include fishing, hunting, and working cows in his free time. He is an active member in the community and hopes to improve people’s understanding toward veterinary medicine.
“We are more than satisfied with the herd care provided by Dr. Paul..”
