Dr. Shane Daigle - Veterinarian
Dr. Shane Daigle was born and raised in Vinton, Louisiana, grew up on a cattle ranch, and knew from a young age that he wanted to be a Veterinarian.
Dr. Daigle attended LSU in 1991 for his undergraduate Zoology degree then went on to attend LSU School of Veterinary Medicine in 1995. In 1999 Dr. Daigle graduated from LSUSVM.
For 2 years after completing Veterinary School, Dr. Daigle practiced in Zachary, Louisiana at a mixed-animal practice just north of Baton Rouge. In 1999 he moved to Ft. Lauderdale, FL, and worked in a high-volume small animal practice just steps from the beach. Being a southern boy and wanting to raise a family he decided to move back close to home and settled in Austin, Texas. He moved to Austin in 2001 where Dr. Daigle worked in two different practices in Cedar Park and Round Rock. In 2003 he purchased the land that Premier Animal Hospital and Premier Pet Resort & Day Spa are now on and on May 10th, 2005 Premier Animal Hospital opened its doors! Dr. Daigle opened Premier with a vision of practicing the very highest quality of medicine and surgery all the while empowering clients to have “a say” in what their “kids” treatment, diagnostic and surgical plans would be!
In 2008, Dr. Daigle opened Premier Pet Resort & Day Spa which was housed directly behind Premier Animal Hospital. It’s an upscale luxury boarding facility as well as a grooming parlor and training facility. In 2010, he opened Emergency Pet Care of Round Rock, which is a full-service after-hours and weekend Veterinary Emergency Hospital. Then in 2012, he decided to open his very own specialized pet crematory, Precious Memories Pet Crematory, offering the utmost in professional, compassionate, and caring services at the end of your pet’s life journey.
In late 2017, Dr. Daigle sold his businesses in town and decided to take his business knowledge, love of Veterinary Medicine, and desire to go back to his “roots” and practice in a rural community again. It was while searching for such a practice that he stumbled across Graef Veterinary Hospital. Upon investigation, it was learned that Dr. Graef had a desire to try and plan his departure from the practice of Veterinary Medicine. It didn’t take long for both Dr. Daigle and Dr. Graef to realize that their plans were a perfect match!! Several months after that initial encounter Dr. Daigle purchased the little gem, fondly known as Graef Veterinary Hospital, on December 4th, 2017. Dr. Daigle is so very excited to see what the next chapter in his professional career holds out here in the great town of Taylor, Texas at Graef Veterinary Hospital.
Dr. Daigle, has two beautiful daughters, Avery and Alexa. Between the two of them, he stays busy with competitive dance, gymnastics, and three-day horse eventing! Dr. Daigle travels the entire state of Texas with both of his daughters year round performing in their collective sporting events when not working here.
Dr. Daigle wants to thank all his clients for their devotion and continued trust in him and all the staff here at Graef Veterinary Hospital.
