Dr. Petti has been an important asset to the Avon Lake Animal Clinic team since starting in February 2009. Her special interests are in wound repair and reconstruction, soft tissue surgery, stem cell therapy, chemotherapy, and feline and canine internal medicine. She finds Avon Lake Animal Clinic to be the perfect place to practice high quality medicine and surgery, all with her personal touch of compassion and care.
Dr. Petti earned her Bachelor of Science from Northern Arizona University and her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Colorado State University where she graduated Phi-Zeta. She has earned a number of recognitions for her excellent veterinary skills; including an internship with the Student Conservation Association at Zion National Park, the Dick T. Wilson Scholarship, and a position in the Vet Prep Programs at Colorado State University which guaranteed her acceptance into veterinary school. She is also a member of American Veterinary Medical Association, Ohio Veterinary Medical Association, Colorado Veterinary Medical Association, South Carolina Association of Veterinarians, and American Animal Hospital Association.
Dr. Petti enjoys spending time with her husband Ivan and her two sons, Basil and Julian. Together they have a number of rescue pets including a Golden Retriever mix named Argo, a Maine Coon cat named Anchovy, and two sweet domestic short hair cats named Mary and Salamander.
Outside of the hospital, Dr. Petti can be found sailing or spending time with her friends and family on the beaches of Lake Erie, running and hiking in Cuyahoga Valley National Park, or enjoying the vast restaurant scene in Cleveland, especially those that feature locally grown ingredients.
