Dr._Teresa-450x300.jpgMeet the Doctor

Dr. Teresa Labuszewski is a native western New Yorker, having attended Starpoint Central School from kindergarten through 12th grade. She received a B.A. in psychology from SUNY at Buffalo in 1975, a Ph.D in Psychology from SUNY at Stonybrook in 1980 and her DVM from Cornell University in 1984. She has worked in several western New York veterinary practices, gaining experience and learning from her fellow veterinarians, until 1992 when she opened The Animal Hospitable. You can be assured that our compassionate, caring staff will treat your pet as if they were one of our own. We do not practice cookie cutter medicine, with puppy or kitten “packages” that are the same for each animal. Instead we practice thoughtful medicine based on you and your pet’s individual needs.



My name is Debbie. I have been married since 1996 and have 2 children, Kirsten and Haley. My pets are Lele, a Boston terrier; and two cats Simba and Tiger-rose. I graduated from Medaille in 1990 and have worked as an Animal Health Technician since. I worked at the Veterinary Emergency Clinic for 10 years and have been at The Animal Hospitable on and off since 1992. Over the years I have been involved in many activities with animals including showing horses and agility with dogs.



Hi, my name is Andrea. In 1986 I graduated from SUNY Delhi as a licensed Veterinary Technician. I've worked at a few other clinics before starting at The Animal Hospitable in March of 2015. My animals are Faith, a doberman, and 3 cats: Madelyn, Alex and Rosie. In my spare time I enjoy photography, riding my recumbant bike, cooking and gardening.

Welcome Committee



Hello, my name is Fiona or FiFi for short. I am one of the hospital cats. I am here everyday to enjoy your pets and to break open those bags of Rx Diets. I LOVE treats! I also love to jump up on the counter and rub all over your belongings while you're trying to check out. Hope to see you (and your food) soon!



Hey! My name is Reynaldo and I’m the other hospital cat. You might have seen me making my rounds around the clinic or heard my very unique, deep cry while talking to everyone! I really love food, sleeping, and getting my neck scratched. If you see me, feel free to give me a quick scratch. I hope to see you soon!



Hi my name is Pablo, I am Dr. Teresa Labuszewski's partner in crime. My mom Dr. T rescued me after I had ate things I shouldn't have. I am a 3 year Dachi-Poo my mother was a miniature dachshund and my father was a poodle. I am very friendly and love to get my tummy and chin scratched. I come to work with my mom every day if you can't see me you will definitely hear me greeting you when you come in. Can't wait to meet you, please feel free to ask where I am if you don't see me up front!
