Dr. Kara Schubert joined the Livingston Animal Hospital team in December 2013. Originally from Albany, NY, she earned her undergraduate degree from Boston University. She then "hopped the pond" to receive her veterinary doctorate and membership in the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons from the University of Glasgow, Scotland.
Dr. Schubert's special medical interests include cardiology, ultrasound, and exotic pet medicine. In addition to fluffy, four-legged pets, she especially enjoys providing medical care to birds and reptiles. Prior to joining our team, Dr. Schubert spent over a year honing her exotic medical skills under the mentorship of a highly respected exotics veterinarian in southern New Jersey. She is now a member of the Association of Exotic Mammal Veterinarians and the Association of Reptilian and Amphibian Veterinarians, and looks forward to bringing this specialized service to our hospital.
In her spare time, Dr. Schubert enjoys cooking, vegetable gardening, and spending time with her husband (also a veterinarian!) and their menagerie, which includes a dozen rare snakes and giant geckos, and three Devon Rex cats.
