Since graduating from the New York State College of Veterinary Medicine at Cornell University in 1993, Dr. Rubenstein has treated dogs, cats and exotic pets. She enjoys educating her clients about their pet’s conditions so that they can work collaboratively to choose a treatment or prevention plan that is just right for the family.
As a pet owner herself, she is particularly sensitive to the strong bond that develops between a family and their pets. The responsibilities of pet ownership often include sensitive and emotional decisions regarding treatment strategies for each life stage. It takes compassionate communication to make decisions that are individually tailored to the pet and family’s needs.
Dr. Rubenstein has had the pleasure of sharing her heart with several pet rabbits, a chinchilla, a turtle, a snake, some mice and hamsters, a bearded dragon, a ferret, many dogs, a few cats, and a horse in addition to her human family.
