Dr. Angela Fusco

Doctor

Dr. Angela Fusco grew up in Miami, FL where she developed a love for veterinary medicine after spending most of her time at her father’s veterinary clinic. She graduated from the University of Miami with a bachelor’s degree in psychology and anthropology, developing a strong interest in behavioral psychology. She became involved in applied behavioral analysis, working closely with children diagnosed with developmental disabilities and their families to provide meaningful and positive change in behavior. Throughout her schooling, her passion for veterinary medicine was still present and she went on to pursue a Master’s degree in toxicology at the University of Florida followed by a degree in Veterinary Medicine at St. George’s University in Grenada, WI. She completed her clinical medicine and surgical training at the University of Florida and upon graduation, moved to beautiful northern Virginia where she gained exceptional experience in a general practice setting. After almost two years, she made the difficult decision to leave Virginia and move back to her home state of Florida to be closer to family. She has two dogs: Kai and Winnie and three cats: Celo, Kingston and Oliver.

Dr. Fusco has special interest in internal medicine, especially endocrine and gastrointestinal diseases, as well as dermatology, soft tissue surgery and exotic animal medicine and surgery. She is Fear Free Certified, working to alleviate fear, anxiety and stress during veterinary visits.
