Dr. Mary Beth Spiotti

Dr. Spiotti grew up in Oakville, CT.  Her parents owned a music store so music has always been a big part of her life.  She first began working in the field of Veterinary
Medicine at the early age of 15.  She knew even then that her purpose in life was to help animals and their owners.  She graduated with Honors from the Holy Cross High School where she was awarded the Sister Margaret Bannon award and a VFW award, both for service to her community.

Dr. Spiotti then attended Michigan State University for 8 years, first earning a Bachelor's Degree in Comparative Physiology and later a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. While there, she also completed an elective rotation in Zoo and Wildlife Medicine and Rehabilitation.  She graduated from both programs with honors.

Upon graduating from the College of Veterinary Medicine, Dr. Spiotti was awarded the American Animal Hospital Senior Student Award for Clinical Proficiency in Small Animal Medicine.  She was also inducted into the Society of Phi Zeta, the Honor Society for Veterinary Medicine.

Dr. Spiotti's areas of special interest include early education of owners with new puppies and kittens, dog and cat behavior, internal medicine, dermatology, cardiology, the human-animal bond and hospice care.  She is a current member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, the Connecticut Veterinary Medicine Association, the Litchfield County Veterinary Medical Association, the American Association of Feline Practitioners, the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior, the American Association of the Human Animal Bond Veterinarians, the International Association of Animal Hospice and Palliative Care and American Association of Shelter Veterinarians. Dr. Spiotti is certified by the American Animal Hospital Association as a Fear Free Veterinarian.  

In her free time, Dr. Spiotti enjoys spending time with her husband, their two sons, their three dogs (a Border Terrier, Ginny, and 2 Pitbull mixes, Mr. Bigglesworth and Livy) and their cat, Cubby.  Three of her four pets are rescues. The rest of her time is spent baking, listening to music, appreciating wildlife, watching movies, especially of the Star Wars and Superhero varieties, and all things Disney.
