Practice limited to companion exotic animal medicine and surgery.
Dr. Lisa Carr is driven to be a good steward of animal wellbeing. Dr. Carr trained internationally at the Royal Veterinary College in London and received her degree in 2003. Her respect for birds, reptiles and small mammals motivated her to seek specialized training with exotic animals and complete a residency with Dr. Scott Stahl, an internationally recognized exotic animal veterinarian. Since completing her residency, Dr. Carr has spent many years providing specialized veterinary care exclusively to exotic pets. She believes passionately that exotic pets should receive specialized care as the highest standard of veterinary medical service available.
Prior to founding MAEVC, Dr. Carr opened and ran the exotics department in a referral and specialty practice in the area. Through this experience, she gained additional expertise in managing emergency cases, specialized surgery and endoscopy. Working with other brilliant veterinarians outstanding in their specialty areas, Dr. Carr was inspired to establish a facility that would provide top-tier care to exotic animals.
Dr. Carr has two cats and two geckos. As a lifelong caretaker of numerous pets, she knows just how important they are to people. The hospital’s motto, “Where All Life Matters,” stems from her belief that the size of an animal does not determine its value as a pet. She has dedicated her life to taking care of unique animals and her purpose in founding the hospital was to honor and foster their value.
Dr. Carr is an active member of the AVMA (American Veterinary Medical Association), ARAV (Association of Reptile and Amphibian Veterinarians), AAV (Association of Avian Veterinarians) and AEMV (Association of Exotic Mammal Veterinarians). She has volunteered her time in various ways to help each of these organizations.
