Meet The Village Vet Staff

Dr. Blitz achieved a career aspiration in 2017, as she became the NEW owner of The Village Vet! Dr. Blitz was born and raised right here in Webster NY, and even went to high school right across the street!

In her spare time, Dr. Moore enjoys the outdoors, especially geocaching, kayaking, and hiking with her pups. When weather isn’t so forgiving, she enjoys cooking and reading.

Clinic freeloader

Butt- Butt” as we affectionately call him, joined TVV in the summer of 2019. The original intent was to find him a new home, but we eventually fell in love with him and couldn’t let him go! The Village Vet had been empty without a clinic cat since Coco, and Buttons brings us daily joy.

Butt-Butt enjoys lazy days in his pink poof, a good laser chase session and following around his favorite person, Christina, all day.

*If you are noticing the absence of our former clinic cat, Jayda, no worries…Our own Rachel grew a fond attachment to her, and Jayda now lives with Rachel and her two dogs! She’s having a blast and being extra spoiled!


Village Vet Legend

Heaven welcomed our whiskered angel, Coco, in December of 2016

He was “bequeathed” to The Village Vet 8 years ago by a dear client.
Dr. Gough promised to take care of him if she passed, but taking care of Coco took a village, The Village Vet. He had a harem of ladies who doted on him like nobody’s business. But he was a good boy and he had it coming!

He had big globe-like eyes that looked straight into your soul and with his sweet disposition, our hearts he stole.

Coco was a huge part of the fabric of The Village Vet. He embodied the warmth and welcoming spirit that is so important to what we do.

He was SO loved. He is SO missed.

RIP Coco. You were a Rock Star.


H. Storm

There have been several instances where we have needed to get our animals in NOW, and the village vet has always been there for us. They educate us, they always think of our pets first, and are inclined to go with the least invasive methods whenever possible

K. Gendron

I’d recommend the Village Vet to anyone. Dr. Moore has been wonderful the past few weeks. They are extremely helpful and call you back to answer your question that day. They never make you feel stupid and want nothing but the best for your animal. I am soooo pleased I picked them to take care of my puppy!!! Thank YOU Village Vet!!!!
