My name is Giovanna Dispenza and I have been working in veterinary medicine and surgery at Little Neck since 2011. A year and a half ago, I was in the middle of my first year at the New York City Veterinary School. I was sent to school to shake hands - I needed help with my studies to help me with my professional career.
A graduate of Oberlin College, I graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine in 1987. There I was elected to the Honorary Veterinary Society, received the prestigious Merck Prize, was president of my class and was elected to our Honourable Veterinary Society. In 1973, she was awarded the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) Distinguished Service Award for her services to veterinary medicine.
After graduating from Animal Medical Center in Manhattan as a DVM, I completed a one-year internship in medicine and surgery, followed by a two-year residency in internal medicine and a one-year internship in medicine and surgery. I have been practising my speciality of general medicine at City Veterinary Care since November 2003. Since then, we have seen our practice grow into a thriving practice, where we continue to attract patients from around the city.
The support of Dr. Parver, a veterinary technician, helped me understand what I needed to succeed in my career. Through my clinical experience in an open-plan facility with the best quality of care, I have learned the critical components necessary for the operation of a state-of-the-art veterinary clinic.
Everything I learn in the office I take home and share with friends and family members who have their own pets. Ina is especially super helpful and calls me every hour when I am worried about my kitten. I come back to ask questions of my pets to see what I can do to improve their lives.
Bonnie had long since decided to become a vet, but accompanying her dog to work was not enough. Ginger, a four-legged companion who is so much a part of Bonnie's life that she takes a new job with her.
In 2001, she was appointed to the staff of the Ansonia Veterinary Center, where she worked for five years. There she looked after a staff of 15 doctors and was responsible for the care of more than 1,000 dogs, cats, rabbits, birds and other animals.
After designing and building a new home for her practice, Bonnie now cares for her own patients at Gotham Veterinary Center. Your office has been modernized and renovated to keep pace with the new diagnostic and surgical equipment. She has opened the doors of Gotham Veterinary Center to welcome her clients and their dogs, cats, rabbits, birds and other animals.
Aah, it's not enough for you to come to the ASPCA Animal Hospital and do your own medical care for your dog, cat, rabbit, bird or any other animal. Every collar, leash and collar will be cleaned and disinfected, and patients will continue to be able to receive animals that are essential for humane euthanasia.

We understand that no employee may bring an animal to the hospital's upper floors to minimize the number of employees and customers while complying with the CDC's recommendations. Only one pet of the customer should accompany the animal to this location and no examination room is allowed at this time. Dr. Parver and all the staff are great at their work and are first class when it comes to caring for the pets that come to us. We have the personal qualities required for excellent veterinary care.
