Dr. Paul Whittington
DVM Small & Large Breed
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, Dr. Paul Whittington 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. 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 three boys, Chandler Richard, Charlie James, and Christopher Paul, 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 of the community and hopes to improve people’s understanding toward veterinary medicine.
