Cara McManus, Staff Veterinarian

BVMS

Dr. McManus was born in Galveston, Texas and grew up outside of New Orleans, Louisiana.  She obtained a B.S. in Neuroscience from Vanderbilt University and then went on to study veterinary medicine and surgery in Glasgow, Scotland at the University of Glasgow. During her time abroad she developed an interest in exotics and zoo animals and was fortunate to volunteer at an elephant sanctuary in Thailand, helped to relocate rhinoceros in South Africa, and held a summer student preceptorship at The Houston Zoo. 

After graduating as part of the Royal College, she moved to Chicago where she practiced in an exotics only and small animal/exotics emergency hospital in the western suburbs.  Dr. McManus joined a high-volume small animal hospital within the city of Chicago in 2014 where she focused on wellness and preventative care for her patients.  Dr. McManus and her fiancé moved to Austin in September 2018 and just got married in the beginning of October.    

Dr. McManus particularly loves educating others about the benefits of preventative care and has a passion for internal medicine, dentistry, and nutrition. 

When she is not at work, Dr. McManus loves to try out new restaurants, concerts, events, etc. around town.  She is excited to start her new adventure in Austin with the VCA Premier Team.
