Dr. Nicole Abusada


Associate Veterinarian
Dr Abusada

Dr. Abusada always knew she wanted to be a veterinarian and started her career while living her home country of Peru before moving to the US with her family in 2007.

Coming to the US did mean starting over for her by getting her Veterinary Technician degree from St. Petersburg Collge and her pre-clinical degree from Ross University. Before attending Vet school, she began working with Venice Pines as a Registered Veterinary Technician. Dr. Abusada went on to receive her Doctorate of Veterinarian Medicine from the Royal Veterinary College in London, England and then rejoined the Venice Pines family.

She is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association and currently working towards her certification as a Fear Free Vet.

Dr. Abusada loves to travel and can usually be found exploring different places on long weekends. She also plans one big trip each year and got to visit Morocco in 2018, and is headed to Africa this year!

When she is not traveling, you can find her spending time with her family which includes two cats, Tripod who moved with her here from London, and Ozzie which is the baby of the family.
