From routine pet health care to specialized dentistry and internal medicine, the team here at Upper East Side Animal Hospital does it all! Our commitment to animal wellness is evident in everything we do and we strive to always put our best foot (or paw!) forward by putting your pet’s health first above all. We treat your pet like family, because after all – they are!
At Upper East Side, our team of experienced veterinarians and staff is what allows us to continue providing top notch pet care services, to ensure your pet lives a long and healthy life. So, without further ado, we’d like to introduce you to one of our very own — Dr. Christina Colon!
From a young age, Dr. Colon knew that helping animals was to be her true calling. She studied at the University of Puerto Rico, where she received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Animal Science in May of 1997. Immediately following, she then went on to study to become a veterinarian at the Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine.
Upon graduating in May of 2003, Dr. Colon began her career at the Veterinary Centers of America in New York, where she served as an associate veterinarian for two years. In 2005 she began working as the primary surgeon for three, multi-doctor practices under the Riverside Animal Hospital, also in New York. She remained with Riverside for 5 years before becoming a surgeon for the ASPCA Mobile Spay & Neuter Clinic.
For the next several years, Dr. Colon continued to hone her surgical, dental and internal medicine skills acting as a private contractor and associate veterinarian for multiple NYC practices including The Village Veterinarian, Banfield Pet Hospital and Pet Haven Animal Hospital. Finally, in January of 2016, Dr. Christina Colon arrived at Upper East Side Animal Hospital! Since then, she has continued to provide outstanding surgical, dental and veterinary care to any and all furry friends that walk through our door.
In addition to her impressive resume, Dr. Colon also hold several professional affiliations and certifications, including membership to the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) and recognition as a registered USDA Health Certificate provider. She is also fluent in both Spanish and English.
