Meet Our Veterinary Team

Our Philosophy

At Whole Pet Veterinary Center, we work as a team with owners and families to create a health care plan that fits each individual patient’s needs. We are small – on purpose – so that we can maintain a closeness with our clients that benefits all. The better we know you and your pet, the better we can understand what you mean by “I don’t know, Doc, Sadie just isn’t herself.” We take the time to listen and explain with longer appointments and time with the doctor. And it’s not just as a Concierge service for clients who pay more. We do this for every client. Because it’s who we are, and how we envision the best care for your family pet.

Dr. Coryn Vickrey

Dr. Coryn Vickrey


Dr. Vickrey has been applying the fundamentals of fear-free vet visits for her entire career and has always viewed herself as an educational partner with pet owners toward the goal of helping every pet live their best possible life. A native of northern California, she graduated from the University of California, Davis in 2003. After practicing for 3 years outside Dayton, OH, she moved to Massachusetts. Dr. Vickrey worked as an associate at a small animal practice in Belmont, MA for 5 years before taking the leap into ownership. With the acquisition of Westford Animal Hospital in 2011, Dr. Vickrey has finally been able to start focusing on transforming the way pets and owners experience the veterinary relationship.

She is known by some as a “crazy cat lady” but has had many different species of pets in her life including dogs, fish, hamsters, mice, chickens, and even a praying mantis. Dr. Vickrey and her family have lived in Acton since 2010. Their current animal collection includes 3 cats, 4 goats, 9 chickens, a flock of guinea fowl, and a peacock. In her spare time, she enjoys working outside in the garden, baking, and ballet.

Veterinary Assistant

School: North Shore Community College

Bio: I have been in the veterinary industry for just over three years, I started as a veterinary receptionist then transitioned over to vet tech after 2yrs I attended North Shore Community College and majored in Animal Science.

Being a Veterinary Technician is more than just a job or career, I feel it is a calling for me. From a very young age caring for animals has been a passion of mine. I take pride in knowing that my involvement in veterinary medicine has helped to make a patient feel better, which in turn eases the pet parent’s concerns as well.

Knowing that my care and knowledge help to extend the life span of the patients brings joy to my heart.

Free time: In my free time I like to workout, travel and try new foods. My hobbies tend to center around beauty & lifestyle trends. I currently share my life with my two cuddle buddies “Snoopy” and “Mya” who insist on frequent movie nights with me!

Client Care Specialist / Vet Assistant

School: Penn Foster

Bio: I’m the kind of person who will do anything to help an animal feel secure when they’re in my presence. No matter how silly it makes me look, I’ll happily get down on the floor and do a play bow for your dog or slow blink at your cat. It’s more important to me that your pet feels like I’m their friend when they’re at their most vulnerable.

Free time: When I’m not working, I’m taking care of my special needs pets Roswell the Beagle dog and Poe the Himalayan cat. I also enjoy reading ALL the books, playing video games, watching movies, and spending time with my boyfriend and family. I am also a professional musician, but I retired from touring in 2020 so now I mostly perform locally and do soundtrack work for indie films.

Cat Boss

Josh came to live at Whole Pet 2013 after an episode of urinary obstruction. He quickly won over the hearts of staff and clients alike He began his tenure here in the role of greeter and marketing and social media personality, and was promoted to Cat Boss in 2015. While Josh maintains his prior duties on an at-will basis, he is more likely to be found napping in one of several less than convenient locations. He reluctantly serves his duties as mentor and trainer to new staff members and interns and vastly prefers his permanent position as staff morale and stress manager.
