Liat Zilkha, DVM
Dr. Zilkha is the founder and sole owner of White Angel Animal Hospital. Dr. Zilkha was born in Israel and her family moved to Texas when she was under a year old. She was raised in Houston and moved to Austin to pursue her undergraduate studies at the University of Texas. She completed a Bachelor of Science in Zoology before going to vet school at Texas A&M’s College of Veterinary Medicine. She worked at two very busy advanced small animal hospitals in Coral Springs, Florida for a year prior to moving back to Austin. There, she developed a strong background of practicing progressive, high-quality medicine and developed strong client communication skills.
In 2008, Dr. Zilkha developed an interest in an experimental treatment for Canine Distemper, a very contagious and often fatal viral disease that affects many animals including dogs and ferrets. She began to treat terminally ill patients and found that many survived. She has seen people who drove their dogs to Austin from as far as California and Missouri for the treatment as she is one of only a handful of veterinarians that perform it. She is continuing to use this protocol and to advise other interested veterinarians on its use in the hopes that it will one day prove to be an effective treatment for Distemper.
In her free time, Dr. Zilkha enjoys spending time with her husband, their lovely daughters Maya and Jordan, and their 3 dogs, a Labrador Retriever named “BisLee” & two Alaskan Malamutes named "Skye" and "Meeko."

Baron has been nominated as our official greeter. He has also appointed himself as our dog-teaser, which is his favorite part of his job. Baron joined the team in March of 2012, when Dr Zilkha saw him at the Austin Humane Society and adopted him. He decided that Dr Zilkha's house did not have enough dogs to tease or people to mingle with, so he opted to stay at White Angel.
In his free time, Baron enjoys laying on the couch, bird-watching, and pretending that he is a tiger. His absolute favorite hobby is getting on top of a large pile of fresh clean laundry.
