G.G. Comet Riggs, DVM, DAVDC
Dr. Riggs has devoted her life to taking care of animals and teaching others about their healthcare. As a child she played in the forests of Roseburg, Oregon, and she brought snakes, lizards, chickens, and ducks to her elementary school show-and-tell. Throughout high school, she was the reigning county showmanship champion in poultry, pigeon, rabbit, and guinea pig 4-H.
Dr. Riggs pursued a Bachelor of Science degree with emphasis in animal science at the University of California, Davis, where she graduated with highest honors. During veterinary school, Dr. Riggs was selected to organize and teach the Summer Enrichment Program (S.E.P.) -- a program for underprivileged youth who are interested in pursuing careers in veterinary medicine. Two of her students are now graduated veterinarians! She also taught the biomedical sciences section of the high school COSMOS (California state summer school for mathematics and science) program. One of her COSMOS students will be graduating with a degree in veterinary medicine in 2018! Dr. Riggs’s veterinary internship program in California wine country focused on surgery, emergency medicine, internal medicine, and general wellness.
Dr. Riggs had the great honor of completing her dentistry and oral surgery residency program at UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine. During her residency, Dr. Riggs volunteered in Nicaragua with the student run organization International Veterinary Outreach (I.V.O.) where she and a group of veterinary students provided free veterinary care to the local communities.
