Teri Wiblin, D.V.M.
I am a native Arizonan and received my DVM from CSU. I have broad veterinary experience. My areas of special interest include dermatology, cardiology, and oncology. Before joining Faust in 1997, I worked at various hospitals valley-wide.
While studying for my doctorate I gained experience working in clinics and animal hospitals in Phoenix, New York, and California. After I graduated from Coronado High School in Scottsdale with high distinction, I began my undergraduate work at the University of Arizona. I received a Bachelor of Science in Animal Health Science with honors and high distinction from the U of A.
I am proud to say that Faust Animal Hospital earned the prestigious honor of becoming AAHA Accredited in 2013. Only 20% of animal hospitals throughout the United States and Canada have earned this accreditation. There are 900 standards of care that a hospital must have and maintain in order to hold this accreditation. Recertification is required every 3 years. Along with our accreditation, my staff was also recognized as the Veterinary Health Care Team of the Year in 2009 by the Arizona Veterinary Medical Association. I was also honored as Veterinary Leader of the Year in 2010. To say that we have an excellent team at Faust Animal Hospital is an understatement. Each team member takes patient care to the highest level, I am proud of each and every member of our team.
Continued education is of the up-most importance for my personal growth and the growth of my staff. I personally am a member of the Arizona Academy which means that I must attend 50 hours per year of continuing education, which is 5 times more than required by the state.
A little about me; music has always been an important part of my life. I attended four years at the University of Arizona on a music scholarship. I was a part of the marching band, wind ensemble, jazz band and sax quartet. I represented U of A in the 1984 Olympic Band. Currently, I am a part of a community handbell choir, Campanillas del Sol, which plays annually at the Desert Botanical Garden at Luminarias de Las Noches.
I am married to a water engineer named Bob, who has a daughter named Sakia. Our hobbies include downhill skiing, reading novels, biking and hiking with our dogs and water aerobics. We have two dogs, Jetson a black Lab, Jessie a Belgian Malinois, and two cats named Penelope and Rusty.
I was born in Denver, CO and moved to Arizona in 1992. I have always had a love for animals, which is what brought me to working at a veterinary hospital, and then here to Faust Animal Hospital. I am blessed to share my home with my husband Jay and my amazing son Austin, plus our menagerie of animals.
We have 2 chihuahuas, Apple and Tuman (AKA Tuman the Tiny Terrorist) and now our latest addition Little Man a Manchester Terrier Mix (AKA the Goat Herder). We have 1 bird, 2 horses, Maverick and Jag, and 2 Nigerian Dwarf Goats Daisy and Dixie. We also have a beautiful aquarium with various fresh water fish.
I am very active doing outdoor activities such as mountain biking, hiking, camping, swimming, and horseback riding. Sharing time with our son Austin is still my greatest joy. I also enjoy reading and time at home with my family.

I was born and raised in Southern California, relocated to the South East corner of Arizona several years ago. I just moved to the Phoenix area in October 2017. Growing my parents and grandparents always had dogs and horses. I got I to veterinary medicine in 2013 when I decided I wanted a career I loved instead of just another job. I have worked in Emergency medicine for small animals, large animals, exotics and even zoo animals for the last 3 years. Emergency medicine is where my heart lives and i have special interest in x-ray/ultrasound and surgery. My home is a busy nest filled with 2 pit bulls, 1 Dogo Argentina, 1 sugar glider, 4 Columbian Red Tail Boas, 1 Ball Python, 1 Matlock Python, 1 Pinstripe Python, 1 Corn snake and 3 horses. In my sparetime I enjoy building & racing trucks/dirtbikes, riding horses, working with multiple levels of animal rescue and spending time with my family & friends.
In my spare time I like to go to the gym, see movies and play soccer.
I began my journey on the road to be a veterinarian. I was accepted at Purdue University veterinary program and began my pre-vet studies. While you are in school, the college likes to see that you are actively working with animals so I got a job with the Indianapolis Zoo. I worked in the plains section with Giraffes, Elephants, Wallabies and herd animals. Then I had a short job in a research facility where I worked with rats. I soon found out that I didn't have the heart to do the things I needed to learn how to be a vet. I couldn't bring myself to poke or cut a living creature. I had some friends that were really into grooming and decided to learn all I could about the profession. I read all 98 titles on grooming in the public library in one weekend and began my grooming career taking in strays, grooming them and finding them homes. I still had quite an interest in the medical side of things so I started studying anything about skin issues that I could get my hands on. This passion has snowballed over the years and today I am a Pet Aesthetician and certified groomer through 2 national organizations as well as an educator and speaker in my field.
