Doctor of Veterinary Medicine
Dr. JJ Figge III grew up in Clifton Park and graduated from Christian Brothers Academy in Albany in 2009. He attended Boston College for his undergraduate studies and received his BA in biology in 2013. Dr. Figge pursued his DVM degree at Ross University and spent his clinical year at North Caroline State University in Raleigh, North Carolina. After graduating, Dr. Figge spent one year in Central Texas in a private practice internship, performing overnight emergency services as well as daytime surgery and medicine services for exotic animals, small animal and large farm animals in the Dallas and Fort Worth metropolitan region.
After completing his internship, he returned to Upstate New York as a small animal general practitioner, working in Latham as well as the Catskills full time. He initially started out as a relief veterinarian for our clinic earlier this year and we are happy to have him join our staff full time as of September.
When not at work, he enjoys being outside as much as possible and can be found exercising or playing tennis in his spare time. Three rescue dogs and 3 tarantulas are all lucky enough to share a home with Dr.Figge
