Dr. Abusada always knew she wanted to be a veterinarian and started her career while living in her home country of Peru before moving to the US with her family in 2007. Coming to the US did mean starting over for her by getting her Veterinary Technology degree from St. Petersburg College and her Associates in Arts degree from State College of Florida. Before attending Vet school, she worked as a Registered Veterinary Technician. Dr. Abusada went on to receive her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Ross University in St. Kitts. She completed her clinical year at The Royal Veterinary College in London. She worked as an associate veterinarian at a small animal veterinary clinic in Florida before moving to Manhattan and joining the Tribeca Soho Animal Hospital team. Her professional interests include internal medicine, dentistry and soft tissue surgery. She is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association and is certified as a Fear Free Vet. Dr. Abusada loves to travel and can usually be found exploring different places on long weekends. When she is not traveling, you can find her spending time with her family which includes two very spoiled cats, Tripod and Ozzy.
