Victoria Morgan Salvatoriello, DVM
Dr. Victoria Morgan Salvatoriello joined the Driftway Animal Hospital team in April of 2013. She is a 2011 graduate of the Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine and a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association and the American Veterinary Dental Association. Dentistry, and weight management are her areas of professional interest.
Victoria is a native of Cohasset, MA and 2005 Magna Cum Laude of Union College, where she was a double major in Biology and Computer Science. She says her college advisor encouraged her to study to become a veterinarian.
"We had an in-depth discussion on what I wanted to do with my life. I expressed my desire to be a vet but was too scared of the responsibility and being faced with painful scenarios. He gave me the encouragement necessary to pursue my dream," she says.
One of nine children, Victoria had the honor of picking out the first family pet and was in charge of its care. While still a child, she bonded with a cat that snuck out the night before her spay surgery and became pregnant, assisting with her labor.
Victoria says "helping bring pets and their owners closer together through optimal health and longevity" is the most satisfying part of being a veterinarian. She recalls working closely with an older cat that lost a leg following a serious illness. "Seeing the client and pet every day or so during the healing and rehabilitation process was hugely rewarding. This very brave kitty made an amazing recovery that brought joy to everyone involved," she says.
Victoria's pursuits outside the office include hiking, geocaching, biking, snowboarding, skiing, needlepoint, yoga and photography. She married Nicholas Salvatoriello in 2013.
