Dr. Halle Mitchell grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia and was actively involved in the equestrian scene, where she managed a small horse boarding facility, taught riding lessons, and competed in show jumping and mounted games. She attended the Pennsylvania State University for undergrad, receiving a B.S. in Animal Science and minor in Equine Sciences. During her time at Penn State, she externed at a wildlife rehabilitation clinic and was a competing member of the PSU equestrian team.
After graduating from Penn State, she relocated to West Indies to attend St. George’s University School of Veterinary Medicine. During her time there, she was on the executive board of SNP, a student-run animal rescue group where she was responsible for the foster and adoption coordination of rescued dogs, as well as facilitating their transportation to new homes in the United States. She adopted her dog, Rambo, from the island as a stray. Dr. Mitchell completed her clinical year of veterinary school at the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine in Blacksburg, VA where she tracked small animal medicine.
She has a passion for preventative medicine, emergency medicine, shelter medicine, and animal rescue. She plans to open her own animal rescue/sanctuary one day.
In her free time, she enjoys riding her horses, snowboarding, scuba diving, and spending time with friends and family. She loves her horse (Clover), 2 rescue dogs (Dexter and Rambo), and rescue cat (Bugatti).
Before booking, please be advised:
While telemedicine is a useful tool for sharing general information and answering questions about pet care, the necessity and importance of an in-person physical examination for your pet cannot be overstated and is considered a standard of care. Most medications cannot be prescribed safely without a physical exam and in some cases, laboratory testing, such as blood work. If your pet is sick or injured, please make every possible effort to see a veterinarian in person. Dr. Mitchell cannot be held liable for any consequences that might result from your decision to pursue telemedicine rather than in-person veterinary care. Please keep in mind that it is possible that Dr. Mitchell will recommend that you take your pet to your local primary or emergency vet after speaking with you.
