About Vint

For over 30 years, Dr. Virga has been a distinguished practitioner and leader in veterinary medicine, recognized for his insights into our relationships with animals. His expertise spans the animal kingdom from dogs and cats to wild species such as elephants, leopards, gorillas, and giraffes. As the founding president of Veterinary Healing Arts, he works as an advisor for nature preserves and refuges, zoological parks and gardens, animal conservancy and stewardship foundations, and governmental agencies on wildlife conservation, welfare, and behavior.


The Book

“Part animal primer, part detective tale, part existential treatise, veterinary behavioral medicine expert Vint Virga’s new book takes us in the minds and motivations of our four-legged friends, and reveals what their actions can show us about ourselves (if we stop to pay attention)… just as apt for the Personal Growth as the Nature section of the bookstore.”   — Animal Sheltering
