Dr. David Fenoglio

Owner, Veterinarian

Dr. David Fenoglio always admired his eldest brother, who worked as a doctor in the human healthcare field, while growing up—he knew he would enjoy working in the medical field as well. As his interests in science and math started to blossom, Dr. Fenoglio came to realize that one career choice was the perfect combination of his passion for science and his adoration of animals: veterinary medicine!

Dr. Fenoglio—Dr. Dave to his staff and clients—grew up in Terre Haute, Indiana alongside his six siblings. He attended Purdue University on a scholarship, starting at his very first veterinary-clinic job during his studies, and graduated with his veterinary degree in 1976. After working as an Associate Veterinarian at a nearby hospital for three years, Dr. Dave had the opportunity to open a new after-hours emergency clinic in Indianapolis, one of the very first in the metropolitan area.

In 1982, Dr. Dave returned to private practice and began working on developing his management skills. A year later, he was ready to take the leap of faith and open his very own clinic—Dr. Dave opened Augusta Animal Clinic for business in 1983, and is still happily serving the pets and animal owners of Indianapolis over 30 years later!

Medically, Dr. Dave’s favorite part of the job is soft-tissue surgery, a skill he honed during his time in emergency medicine. He’s also fond of endocrinology. Most of all, though, Dr. Dave loves working directly with pet owners to provide the highest level of care possible for their four-legged companions.

Dr. Dave and his wife, Debbie, have five adult children and share their home with two dogs of their own. Jack is a sweet Chihuahua who enjoys carrying his stuffed teddy bear all over the house, and Zoe is a Bichon Frise/Shih Tzu mix who leaps into Dr. Dave’s arms when he gets home from the office every evening.

When he isn’t caring for pets here at the clinic or spending time with his family, Dr. Dave enjoys working outdoors, walking, riding his Harley Davidson motorcycle, and golfing. He’s been playing golf since he was in high school, and even boasts two holes-in-one!
