  • Brian Abraham

    Dr. Abraham has over 27 years of experience as a veterinarian. He worked in the metro area for other vets before fulfilling his dream of opening his own animal care clinic in 2002. Starting with just one technician, the practice has since grown to include three doctors and over twelve full-time and part-time staff members.

    Dr. Abraham remembers writing an essay back in fourth grade about wanting to become a vet. As a child, his pets included a guinea pig, a parakeet, frogs, turtles, hamsters, fish, rabbits and eventually a mini-schnauzer.

    After graduating Brooklyn College with a degree in biology, he set off for veterinary school in Parma, Italy. Between studies, Dr. Abraham found time to travel and do some skiing in the Dolomites. After presenting a thesis on retinal diseases, he graduated and returned home with his two Italian cats, Sylvester and Squeaky.

    Dr. Abraham and his wife, Elise, currently have three adopted dogs: Chip, Louie and Billy. They also have two adopted cats: Mia and Harley.  Their daughter Sarah is a veterinary technician specializing in anesthesia and dentistry.  Their son Jared is a "sous" chef at a fine restaurant in NJ where he is sharpening his culinary skills.
