Dr. Linnette Vasquez was born and raised in The Bronx. She decided at the age of 5 she was going to be a veterinarian, following in her father’s footsteps after helping him rehabilitate a baby pigeon that fell outside its nest. She completed a year of clinical rotations at the University of Minnesota and received her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine. She then completed a Small Animal Rotating Internship at Blue Pearl Veterinary Partners in New York City.
The journey to become a veterinarian has led to travel to many places; Ithaca, Minneapolis, Sydney, The Federation of Saint Kitts and Nevis, and Vancouver. She is very excited to have the opportunity to care for the animals of her hometown.
Dr. Vasquez has one cat, Balliane, which she adopted during veterinary school. She enjoys reading in Central Park and traveling, be it a new neighborhood or country.
