Meet our Doctors
Dr. Michele Wright
Dr. Michele Wright, daughter of associate veterinarian Dr. Loretta Ehrlund, is a second generation veterinarian. Having watched her parents carry out their life's dream, she could see no other future for herself than to further the foundation they had laid out.
Dr. Michele is a graduate of Texas A&M University's College of Veterinary Medicine. She spent the first several years working as an associate at two San Antonio practices before she and her husband, Dr. Travis, were given the opportunity to purchase Great Northwest Animal Hospital.
Dr. Michele's goal for every patient is to establish a thorough working knowledge of the entire pet, and to establish a diagnosis that will allow her to provide a successful therapeutic plan.
At home, Dr. Michele loves to spend time with her two wonderful children, Allison and Brayden. One of her favorite activities is cake baking and decorating. Additionally, she loves to travel and experience the world of food and wine with her husband Dr. Travis.
Dr. Travis Wright
Having grown up in the San Antonio area, Dr. Travis Wright is local native who grew up with a fond passion for performing in equestrian events. His love for working with horses, and animals in general, led him to pursue a career in the veterinary field.
Dr. Travis studied Biomedical Science at Texas A&M University before being admitted into the College of Veterinary Medicine. Upon graduation, Dr. Travis began his career working on performance horses with a special focus in lameness. However, after a short time, he shifted his interest over to the companion animal side of the industry.
After working as an associate for five years at two different small animal practices, Dr. Travis and his wife, Dr. Michele, were able to purchase this practice and establish a successful business that is modeled after their own beliefs and passion.
Dr. Travis's goal for every patient is to provide the best treatment possible while keeping practicality and owner constraints at the forefront of the decision making process.
Dr. Travis is father of two wonderful children, Allison and Brayden. During his time off, Dr. Travis enjoys spending time with his kids swimming, going to parks, visiting the zoo and beach escapes. Dr. Travis also enjoys shooting sports, fishing, traveling and fine wines.
Dr. Loretta Ehrlund
At the age of 10 Dr. Loretta Ehrlund was scared when her first dog had an epileptic seizure. A
veterinarian was able to explain what was wrong and how to care for her dog. She decided right then
that she wanted to be a person that could help other people with their animal’s problems.
Her goal for every patient and their owner is to find a suitable solution for that pet. While she may not
be able to “fix” every medical problem, she always wants the best possible outcome whether it is
referring a pet to a specialist, hospice care or most often a reasonable way for the owner to help the pet
Dr. Ehrlund’s animal family consists of 2 dogs, a standard and a toy poodle, 2 cats, one is white and the
other is a Siamese Mix, 2 guinea pigs and 1 horse. She also has 2 grandchildren, 2 daughters and 2 sons-
Dr. Megan Arroyo
Like many veterinarians, my desire to become one began with a love of animals and a passion for science and medicine. Upon helping to care for my own childhood cat when he fell ill, I learned about the difference a good vet can make for a four-legged family member and their owner. I became a veterinarian to help be that difference for as many pets and owners as I can.
My goal with every patient visit is to individually get to know both the owner and the pet, as well as perform a thorough exam, so I can build relationships and provide the best care possible.
My family includes my husband, Michael, 2 cats, Rum Tum Tugger and Princess Zelda, and an Arabian horse, Noble Intrique.
Dr. Ciera Johnston
Dr. Ciera Johnston has always seen veterinarians as the most compassionate, patient, and understanding of doctors as they take care of creatures that cannot tell you where it hurts. She has valued the veterinarians who helped her throughout the best times as well as, the darkest moments, for all her beloved fur kiddos. Being surrounded by such impactful veterinarians inspired her to become one herself and be a voice for those that cannot speak.
Dr. Johnston’s goal during every patient visit is to build a positive relationship with her clients and their beloved pets with a welcoming, friendly environment every time they come. Dr. Johnston wants to be a part of your team and help you make decisions that are best for you, your pets, and your lifestyle.
Dr. Johnston’s husband, Jonathan, is her high school sweetheart, a wonderful dentist, and best dog dad. Together they have one well-loved, spoiled rotten Great Pyrenees/Australian Shepherd mix named Dustin, affectionately known as DuBear.
