Dr. Anthony Zaccheo
Dr. Zaccheo is a native of Bensonhurst, Brooklyn. As a child, he had developed a strong interest in science which continued to grow as he entered high school and college. He received his Bachelor of Science in Biology from St. Francis College in Brooklyn Heights. Upon completion of his degree, he remained in Brooklyn to spend some time working as a veterinary technician assistant in the Bay Ridge and Bensonhurst neighborhoods. Dr. Zaccheo decided to pursue a career in Veterinary Medicine and ultimately earned his degree at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York.
After veterinary school, Dr. Zaccheo completed a small animal rotating internship at Veterinary Emergency and Referral Group in the Carroll Gardens/Cobble Hill area. Dr. Zaccheo’s professional interests include emergency medicine, oncology, surgery, and neurology. He hopes to strengthen the human-animal bond every day.
In his free time, he enjoys business and asset development, going to the movies, and reading. If you have any good book suggestions, he’s always open to them.
We also couldn’t forget he brought his favorite veterinary assistant, Butters! Butters the golden retriever enjoys peanut butter and belly rubs. Prior to covid, he was a therapy dog that visited schools and helped children. Although he misses his old job he’s currently enjoying his time surrounded by his favorite people in his new field. His new job duties include greeting patients, begging for treats, and picking us up when we’re down (even if he’s the one that knocked us over!).
