Amanda Ziegler, DVM
Dr. Amanda Ziegler was born in Illinois, but moved to south Florida as young child. Dr. Ziegler graduated from the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine in 2002. (This has set up a fierce SEC rivalry among our veterinarians......GO GATORS!) Dr. Ziegler’s early career focused strictly on emergency practice. In 2007 wanderlust set in and Dr. Ziegler wandered off to practice in both emergency practices and general practices in Las Vegas, Mississippi, Alabama, and throughout Florida. Dr. Ziegler moved to Key West in 2013 and practiced locally for nearly 5 years. After Hurricane Irma, Dr. Ziegler moved on to practice in the Cayman Islands and again in mainland Florida emergency clinics as an emergency relief veterinarian. Having the opportunity to come back to Key West for good, as part of Dr. Humphrie’s team, is a dream come true for Dr. Ziegler!
When not at work, Dr. Ziegler is likely to be found in the water. She is PADI open water scuba instructor and loves any and all open water activities.
