Veterinarian & Certified Canine Rehab Therapist
Dr. Perry has been working with animals for over 10 years. She grew up and currently lives in Ditmas Park, Brooklyn. She is glad to be back and offering veterinary services after spending many years away from the city in pursuit of her undergraduate (Wellesley College) and veterinary (Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine) degrees. She firmly believes that there are many different ways to treat each patient she works with, it's just a matter of finding out which plan works best for her patient and their owner. She is more than happy to discuss health issues in detail with pet owners, because understanding is the first step in creating a successful treatment plan. In addition to practicing traditional veterinary medicine, she is also certified in canine rehabilitation therapy. This additional training allows her to offer alternative options for patients where traditional therapy hasn't worked. She opened PAWSitive Veterinary of New York in 2011 to answer the growing need for a veterinarian in the neighborhood. In her spare hours, she likes to spend time with friends, family and her dog Geneva (featured prominently throughout this website).
Playful Puppy & Website Model
Geneva was rescued from Sean Casey Animal Rescue by Dr. Perry in September 2010. She is a very friendly girl and loves everyone (especially those who give her treats). When she was a very small puppy, she was hit by a car prior to being rescued. She had fractures in both femurs and later had surgery to repair a torn diaphragm. However, she recovered very well, receives regular physical therapy and is happy as ever!
