Medicine and Surgery

Both Dr. Kinne and Dr. Koren-Roth are general practitioners with combined experience of greater than 50 years. They are able to perform a wide range of medical and surgical procedures. If your pet requires medical or surgical input from a specialist, we are happy to offer the services of a Board Certified Surgeon, a Board Certified Internist and a veterinarian with a special interest in and specialized training in veterinary dentistry. This allows you to benefit from the expertise of these veterinarians with specialized training, without having to travel to another veterinary hospital with your pet. Our visiting specialists are Dr. Tom Bowersox, Dr. Elizabeth Shaker and Dr. Robin Tobin.

Dr. Tom Bowersox is a Board Certified Veterinary Surgeon with many years of experience. Dr. Bowersox will come to our hospital to perform specialized surgical procedures including orthopedic and soft tissue surgeries. Many of our clients like the convenience of being able to bring their pets to a familiar environment for a specialized procedure. This arrangement allows for aftercare to be done by our staff at Colonie Animal Hospital during our hours of operation.

Dr. Elizabeth Shaker is Board Certified in Small Animal Internal Medicine. She is available to perform ultrasound, endoscopy, and internal medicine consultation by appointment at Colonie Animal Hospital.

Dr. Robin Tobin has a special interest in veterinary dentistry. She has taken many continuing education courses that have helped her to improve her skills in this area of veterinary medicine which has become more sophisticated in recent years.
