Dr. Peterson examines mom and pups at a local dog shelterLisa M. Peterson, MS, DVM

Dr. Peterson graduated from Cornell College of Veterinary Medicine in 1997.  Prior to that she obtained a B.S. degree in Psychology from Fordham University and a M.S. degree in Environmental Science from the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry.

After working in the environmental field for several years, she decided to develop her passion for working with animals into a career in veterinary medicine.  For the first fifteen years of her career, she worked in stationary animal hospitals providing care to countless dogs and cats, pocket pets, an occasional reptile and bird, and even a kangaroo.

Dr. Peterson began offering house calls when she realized that many people and their pets dreaded going to the vet.  She feels that providing veterinary care in the home can be much less stressful for both the pet and the client, and she's happy to be able to provide this service.

For many years, Dr. Peterson volunteered at her town's cat shelter.  She nows provides veterinary care for a local dog shelter.

She is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, the Connecticut VMA, Massachusetts VMA, the Veterinary Information Network and the American Association of Feline Practitioners.  

When she's not working as a veterinarian, Dr. Peterson is birding near and far, kayaking and gardening; enjoying vegan meals with Steve and friends; and playing with her energetic Jack Russell Terrier, Vida, and her three kitties, Flora, Mojo and Nick.
