Welcome to our new Medical Director, Dr. Anne Romeo.
Dr. Romeo, is from San Antonio and graduated from Texas A&M University with her degree in Veterinary Medicine in 2015. Her career in veterinary medicine and love for cats started in high school when she started working at a feline only hospital as a veterinary technician. While continuing to work in the veterinary field, she graduated from Texas State University with a B.S. in Biology and a minor in Animal Science. Her love for science and research led her to attend the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio where she researched the role of stem cells in pediatric cancer. Initially planning to continue in science and get her PhD, Dr. Romeo realized how much she missed veterinary medicine and applied to veterinary college. She graduated from the University of Texas with a Master’s degree in Cell and Structural Biology and subsequently enrolled in the DVM program at Texas A&M University.
During her time at A&M, Dr. Romeo was an active member in the Student Chapter of the American Association of Feline Practitioners and studiously learned all she could about every facet of feline medicine. Furthering her interest in feline medicine, she was on a One Health interdisciplinary research committee, investigating the overarching health effects of feline welfare and how to increase societal regard for feline ownership. Dr. Romeo spent the two years working at a feline only practice in San Antonio and is an author of several chapters in the veterinary textbook “The Feline Patient.” Dr. Romeo is coming to Houston from Austin where she practiced in a small animal hospital.
In her spare time, Dr. Romeo enjoys an active lifestyle by participating in Orangetheory Fitness. She also loves hanging out with her small menagerie of cats – Pebbles, Tank, and Hippo.
Dr. Romeo is delighted to be joining the Houston Cat Hospital team and she looks forward to providing the best care to your furry feline friends.
