Hello, my name is Dr. Suzanna Vaino. I'm a 2003 graduate of Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine, and I have been practicing general small-animal medicine, surgery, and dentistry for 19 years. In total, I have 29 years of experience in the veterinary field, and I am happy to help you today! I live just outside of Atlantic City, NJ with my husband, 3 kids, a cat (Chocolate) and a chihuahua (Scarlett), and a flock of 13 backyard egg-laying hens plus 1 obnoxious rooster: Sarah, Pumpkin, Stormy, Penguin, Rose, Sunny, Midnight, Emerald, Pixie, Hawk, Cheeks, Cloudy, Meteor, and Rainbow-Coconut (the obnoxious rooster). In my spare time I enjoy restoring classic cars with my husband, showing 4-H poultry with my daughters, and taking my 4 year old son (who loves race cars) to the drag strip--he's even been to Daytona! I owned and operated a full-service veterinary hospital for many years, but these days I enjoy raising my children, and running an ultra low-cost veterinary clinic for underprivileged pet owners so that they can keep their pets healthy despite any financial limitations--because I strongly believe that anyone should be able to experience the human-animal bond, regardless of income. The veterinary profession has been very good to me; I am so fortunate to be able to do what I love...and it's my way of "giving back." See you on Vetster!
