Cara Toscano, DVM

Dr. Cara Toscano received her a B.S. degree in Pre-Veterinary Medicine and Biology-Life Sciences from the University of Findlay in Ohio. She then attended The Ontario Veterinary College in Guelph, Ontario to earn her DVM. She is interested in general practice, community outreach, and wildlife/zoological medicine.

If you were to ask Dr. Toscano why she chose the veterinary profession she would say, "I became a veterinarian because... in high school I was fascinated when we would dissect frogs in biology class. I wanted to know everything about how the animal body worked and functioned. This fascination has turned into a career in veterinary medicine."
