Dr. Julie Zalenka

We were thrilled to welcome Dr. Julie Zalenka to the ASAH family in 2016. Dr. Zalenka has worked as a locum in various hospitals in the area, performs surgery for Operation Pets, and also teaches at the University at Buffalo.

She graduated summa cum laude from Hollins University in VA, with a major in biology and a minor in chemistry. She completed her vet school training at VA-MD Regional College of Veterinary Medicine after taking a year off to work at UVA’s Cancer Center. She earned a fellowship and also worked as a technician in a large animal hospital during vet school.

She shares her life with her son and husband, along with two large dogs and two cats (plus a rescued Bearded Dragon!). She enjoys creek walking and tries to stay active by walking with her dogs.
