About Us : Susan Kelleher, D.V.M.

Susan Kelleher, D.V.M.

Dr. Kelleher is originally from Buffalo, NY. She received her Bachelor’s degree with a dual major in Chemistry and Biology from Alfred University in 1990 and went on to veterinary school at the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine.

In high school and college Dr. Kelleher volunteered at the Buffalo Zoo and gained extensive experience by working closely with the bird keepers. Throughout veterinary school, she was very active in the avian, exotic and wildlife program and spent a lot of time volunteering at the Clinch River Raptor Center. Towards the end of her senior year of veterinary school, she spent two months working with Dr. Jeff Jenkins in San Diego as a student extern.

Dr. Kelleher moved to Florida in August of 1995. She spent her first 3 1/2 years in small animal practices in South Florida. As time went on and her following of avian and exotic pets grew, she decided and start her own practice and it has been a dream come true: a quiet atmosphere where Dr. Kelleher can focus all her attention on the special needs of unique pets.
