Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2014

Daniel N. Pascetta, DVM

A career in veterinary medicine was a natural choice for Dr. Pascetta. He grew up in northern New Jersey surrounded by animals from dogs and cats to birds and turtles. He received his Bachelor of Science degree at Rutgers University in 2007. During his time at Rutgers he worked as a veterinary technician in central New Jersey and after graduation he spent several years working in contract research before deciding to continue his education in veterinary medicine. He was awarded his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2014 from The Ohio State University where he spent time researching respiratory virology and surgical spinal stabilization in dogs. Upon graduation he spent several years in general practice in Bethlehem, PA before returning to practice in his home state of New Jersey. He is interested in all areas of veterinary medicine, but cases involving ophthalmology, diagnostic imaging, and surgery are especially fascinating to him. Dr. Pascetta is a Fear Free Certified veterinarian.

Dr. Dan shares his home with his wife, Megan, their newborn daughter, Hannah, and their five beloved pets, Maddie the Boxer, Joule the miniature Dachshund, and their three grey kitties, Richard Parker, Foxglove, and Gwen.
