Our deep love for companion animals drives us to do our very best for every pet and their family. We use Fear Free techniques with every pet to reduce and even eliminate anxiety associated with veterinary visits. Our veterinarians and support staff take tremendous pride in their commitment to bettering the lives of our patients and their people.

Lara was born in California but grew up in Melbourne Australia. Here she started her journey into Veterinary Medicine. She completed a Bachelor of Science and then a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Melbourne. She spent her first two years in general practice in Melbourne, where she fell in love with small animal medicine. Lara then decided to travel to Thailand where she worked as a Veterinarian at an Elephant rescue center. During this time she treated Elephants that suffered from unethical tourism, and worked to help stray cats and dogs with a local rescue. While doing this, she taught North American Veterinary students basic veterinary skills and surgery. Lara then wanted to return to her roots, and has spent the last two and half years working in veterinary clinics in North America. In her spare time Lara enjoys walking her dogs in Central Park, trying new food at local restaurants, or getting an adrenaline hit by going skydiving!
Ruleena developed her love of animals as a young child growing up in India. As a teenager, she spent much of her time volunteering with various non-profit animal welfare organizations and fostering dogs, cats, and birds in desperate need. Many of these animals suffered from debilitating physical injuries and serious behavioral problems resulting from trauma. After moving to the United States, she obtained her Bachelor's degree in Animal Science with a minor in Equine Science from Rutgers University. Ruleena has traveled to Belize and South Africa where she gained knowledge and experience in large animal and wildlife veterinary medicine. She had the unique opportunity to work with exotic species such as lion cubs, cheetahs, wild ruminants, and exotic birds.
Ruleena loves to spend time with her feline sons Aymard and Alfie, even takes them out on walks! In her spare time, she enjoys travel and excursions with family and friends.
