Dr. Donna Mensching
Dr. Mensching graduated from Cornell University College of Veterinary
Medicine in 1995. She practiced for several years in general and
emergency practice before returning to academia where she obtained a
Master's degree in environmental toxicology studying the role of the
flame retardants, PBDEs, in the development of feline hyperthyroidism
and became a board-certified veterinary toxicologist. She worked with
the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center and the Washington Poison Center
before moving back to New York to be closer to family and to return to
her passion--private practice. She cherishes the connection with pet
owners when they realize she cares about their pets as much as they do.
When not working, she enjoys all sorts of outdoor activities, adventure
travel, and volunteering with Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest. She lives
in Lake Placid with her dog, Kashmir, and cats, Dagger and Loey.
