Dr. Caite Wiacek

Dr. Wiacek is originally from Rochester, MI, in metro-Detroit, where her love for animals began. As a kid she was always watching animal-themed TV shows, having puppy themed birthday parties, and even won her fourth grade dream career speech contest about her dream of becoming a veterinarian. Fast forward a few years, Dr. Wiacek completed her vet school prerequisites and earned her Bachelors of Science at Wayne State University in 2019 where she volunteered at organizations promoting animal welfare in the city of Detroit and was president of the club volleyball team. Further solidifying her interest in veterinary medicine, she worked as a kennel assistant at Madison Veterinary Hospital where she got her first glimpse into the enormous impact of high quality veterinary care.

Dr. Wiacek then attended vet school at The Ohio State University where she was the student liaison for the American Heartworm Society and secretary for the Veterinary Pharmacy Alliance. Continuing to build skills and interest in small animal and shelter medicine, Dr. Wiacek worked at Suburban Animal Clinic as a veterinary assistant and at Gigi’s Shelter for Dogs in their parvovirus treatment center. You may recognize Dr. Wiacek from her time here at CRAH as part of the OSU Stanton Summer Externship Program in Summer 2021. She then graduated vet school in 2023 with several awards including Phi Zeta Honors and the Excellence in Behavior Award for her work with the OSU Behavioral Medicine Service during her clinical year.

Dr. Wiacek and her partner, James, and their rescue pup, Franny, live in Wooster and are excited to be a part of the community! In her free time she enjoys playing volleyball, swimming, reading, teaching Franny new tricks, and trying new local restaurants.

Her veterinary interests include behavioral medicine, dentistry, preventive medicine, and soft tissue surgery. Dr. Wiacek is Fear Free Certified, prioritizes low stress handling, and enjoys making her patients feel more comfortable in the veterinary setting.
