Meet the Doctor
Dr. Teresa Labuszewski is a native western New Yorker, having attended Starpoint Central School from kindergarten through 12th grade. She received a B.A. in psychology from SUNY at Buffalo in 1975, a Ph.D in Psychology from SUNY at Stonybrook in 1980 and her DVM from Cornell University in 1984. She has worked in several western New York veterinary practices, gaining experience and learning from her fellow veterinarians, until 1992 when she opened The Animal Hospitable. You can be assured that our compassionate, caring staff will treat your pet as if they were one of our own. We do not practice cookie cutter medicine, with puppy or kitten “packages” that are the same for each animal. Instead we practice thoughtful medicine based on you and your pet’s individual needs.
My name is Debbie. I have been married since 1996 and have 2 children, Kirsten and Haley. My pets are Biscuit, Golden Retriever: Lele, a Boston terrier; and two cats Kramer and Tiger-rose. I graduated from Medaille in 1990 and have worked as an Animal Health Technician since. I worked at the Veterinary Emergency Clinic for 10 years and have been at The Animal Hospitable on and off since 1992. Over the years I have been involved in many activities with animals including showing horses and agility with dogs.
Hi, my name is Andrea. In 1986 I graduated from SUNY Delhi as a licensed Veterinary Technician. I've worked at a few other clinics before starting at The Animal Hospitable in March of 2015. My animals are Faith, a doberman, and 3 cats: Madelyn, Alex and Rosie. In my spare time I enjoy photography, riding my recumbant bike, cooking and gardening.
Hello! My name is Nicole and I started at the Animal Hospitable in April of 2016. I have two cats at home, Gabriel and Dakota, and a dog named Bear, who is a chow mix. I graduated from Buffalo State in 2014 with a degree in English. When I'm not working, I enjoy going on hikes and adventures with Bear and my husband, Nick, reading, and photography. I look forward to talking to you soon!
Hi! My name is Vanessa and I started at The Animal Hospitable in July 2016. I really enjoy being around animals and I have fostered cats and dogs for the SPCA for many years. I am also the fur mom of a 4 year old Olde English Bulldogge named Stella. In my free time I love going for hikes and taking her up to Alleghany State Park. I look forward to meeting you and your pets!
Hello there! My name is Lauren! I started at the Animal Hospitable, as an assistant, in September of 2016. In May of 2016, I graduated from Houghton College with my bachelors in biology. I am looking to further my education and maybe go on to vet school some day. I have an adorable beagle named Annabelle. I’m a big time horse enthusiast and I love to ride dressage! In my free time I like to spend time with my family, go to my family cabin, or work on DIY projects! I look forward to seeing you and your pet soon!
Hello, my name is Fiona or FiFi for short. I am the hospital cat (every good hospital has one). I am here everyday to enjoy your pets and to break open those bags of Rx Diets. I LOVE treats! I also love to jump up on the counter and rub all over your belongings while you're trying to check out. Hope to see you (and your food) soon!
