Village House Call Vet in New York, New York, is focused on delivering an integrative alternative for care of your pets with the help of small animal vet Dr. Carolyn Quagliata. She features the resources and experience you need when caring for the health of your precious furry friends.
A Westchester native, Dr. Quagliata graduated magna cum laude from Boston University with a BA in biology. After receiving her DVM from VA-MD Regional College of Veterinary Medicine, she was awarded an internship in small animal medicine and surgery at New York City's Animal Medical Center.
Following her intern training, Dr. Quagliata accepted a position as an associate veterinarian at the West Village Veterinary Hospital, where she worked for more than six years. During this time, she developed special interests in kidney and gastrointestinal disease and pain management. In 2006, she received her acupuncture certification from the Chi Institute in Gainesville, Florida and in 2010, Dr. Quagliata started her own house call practice.
Dr. Quagliata takes an integrative approach when treating her patients, which means she has the ability to combine the best of what conventional Western medicine has to offer with complementary treatments such as acupuncture, nutrition, and massage.
A new service being offered is COLD LASER THERAPY which is a holistic, non-invasive treatment which involves application of a coherent light to an area of the body which is inflamed, infected, or painful. Some of the most commonly treated conditions include arthritis, cranial cruciate ligament injury, hip dysplasia, intervertebral disk disease, degenerative joint disease, skin conditions including acral lick granulomas, acute and chronic ear infections (and more!).
She had the pleasure and honor to care for her loyal yellow Labrador, Flannel, for almost 15 years. She currently enjoys the company of her feisty and affectionate orange tabby, Leroy, and her mischievous and playful grey tabby, Jackson. Her newest addition is a rambunctious and loving chocolate Labrador, Corduroy.
