About Vet

*** Please note that I need a minimum of ONE HOUR NOTICE for appointments. Thanks***

Hello and thank you for checking out my profile. I have been a veterinarian for just about 30 years in general practice and I love what I do, being able to help owners keep their pets healthy, and make sick pets feel better. I am also a certified animal behaviorist. I focus strongly on the Human-Animal Bond as well as being Fear Free Certified and Feline Friendly certified. I have also earned my UW-AAB (Certificate of Applied Animal Behavior) and I am available for behavior consultations - anything from separation anxiety to inappropriate urination in dogs and cats. REGARDING BEHAVIOR CONSULTATIONS - Please note that a full behavior consultation takes two or three appointments. Initially we will meet to discuss the issue and I will send you a questionnaire to fill out to find out as much possible information as I can about your behavior issues and your pet's life with you. We will discuss behavior modification management and I will almost always recommend that you get a credentialed trainer to come help you implement that management. We may discuss using medications to make learning new behaviors easier for your pet. Our second appointment will be one week later after I send you my behavior consult report, and we will go over what you need to do to get the behavior you want or stop the behavior you don't want. We can generally only work on ONE unacceptable behavior at a time, and you WILL need to put in a lot of WORK to get a positive outcome.

Below is my biography, if you'd like to read more.

Dr. Feeney’s dreams of working in veterinary medicine became a reality in 1994, when after attending Seton Hall University, she went on to graduate from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine. In the years following, Dr. Feeney worked for both general practices and emergency animal hospitals in and around New Jersey, all the while developing strong patient and client bonds as well as continually expanding her knowledge, skill sets and scope of veterinary clinical medicine. Dr. Feeney was awarded the Good Neighbor Award from Henry Schein Animal Health in honor of her dedication and contribution to sharing the value of animals to residents in her local community.

She is Certified in Applied Animal Behavior (UW-AAB) and is Elite Fear Free Certified, Feline Friendly Certified, and NAVC Human-Animal Bond Certified, Low Stress Handling Certified and KPA Better Vet Visits certified. Solving the behavior problems that harm the human-animal bond and helping pets live in harmony with their families, both humans and other household pets, is of critical importance to Dr. Feeney, and something to which she has dedicated a significant amount of time and training.

In addition to the patients she cares for in the clinic, Dr. Feeney is passionate about shelter medicine and is a strong advocate for those many animals who do not have homes or families of their own. She volunteers weekly at Somerset Regional Animal Shelter and St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center, using her talents and skills to keep pets waiting for their new homes healthy and adoptable.

Dr. Feeney is married for 24 years to her husband, Kevin, and they have two children. Her favorite pastimes are reading, writing (she’s currently publishing her first book, a young adult fantasy novel), Disney, yoga and baking all things chocolate. She also decorates and donates beautiful personalized cakes for an organization that provides cakes for foster kids who otherwise wouldn’t get a cake (For Goodness Cakes) or kids with serious illnesses who really need a bit of joy (Icing Smiles).

She shares her life with some fantastic rescued pets, including too many cats to name (nine at the moment), a very silly little dog, some adopted hermit crabs and a beautiful aquarium of tropical fish. If she could, she’d have chickens, goats, a horse and some beehives too. You just can’t have too many pets!
