Dr. Dulude has always wanted to help animals. From an early age, she would bring home injured animals in the neighborhood and try to nurse them back to health. She always demonstrated a gentle demeanor and an uncanny ability to communicate with and train her pets. Her parents encouraged her love of animals and she grew up with cats, dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs, a bird, pet mice, fish, and even Standardbred Race horses! It sounds like she grew up on a farm, but in reality, she grew up in Rutherford.
With the Meadowlands Racetrack practically in her backyard, Dr. Dulude professionally raced harness horses from the early age of sixteen. She was one of the youngest and also one of just a few female harness drivers in the country. After graduating from Rutgers University, she managed a stable of race horses for her father. A nurturer at heart, she realized her favorite part of the racehorse industry was taking care of the horses, keeping them healthy, and tending to injuries and illnesses. That’s when she decided to attend veterinary school at Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine.
After graduation from vet school and years of training at prestigious animal hospitals in the tri-state, she opened her own general practice, focusing on preventative medicine. She enjoys teaching her clients the best ways to take care of and train their pets so that they have long happy lives. She also works hard to develop a professional rapport with her patients and their owners and strives to make every experience at her hospital a positive one. Dr. Dulude attributes her ability to gain her patients’ trust to her experiences working with the thousand-pound animals that she raced as a young adult.
During her time away from the hospital, Dr. D enjoys spending time with her husband, son, and their menagerie of pets at home. They love the outdoors, skiing, camping, and the beach.
Erin was born and raised in West Milford, NJ. She always had a love for animals and had many pets growing up including dogs, birds, hamsters and even rats! She learned a great deal about essential animal health care while working in a boarding kennel for 5 years.
Erin always wanted her career to be targeted in animal medicine and joined Dr. Dulude’s team in 2012. She studied Veterinary Technology and Business at Bergen County Community College. She is working towards a state certification as a Veterinary Practice Manager and currently serves as the Office Manager of the hospital.
When not at work, Erin likes to spend time with her rescue dog, Winnie. The two enjoy scenic hikes on beautiful NJ trails. She is an avid fan of the New York Rangers. She also likes to spend time with her family and friends and often takes care of their pets when they are away.
Bri fell in love with veterinary medicine when she found out it is a cornerstone of two of her passions- science and animals. Bri was a client of Parsippany Animal Hospital and saw first-hand how emergencies are handled when her dog, Georgia, needed emergent hernia repair. Bri knew after she saw what an amazing job the team did that she wanted to be a part of helping other animals heal.
Bri studied Biology at the University of Georgia and History at Montclair State. Her interests in the veterinary field include preventative care, emergency cases, and client support. Bri works well under pressure and feels fulfilled when she can help stabilize a patient who is in distress. She actively assists on many intricate procedures such as removing fly larvae, repairing aural hematomas and draining cysts. Bri takes pride in conveying to the client how to properly give medications, inform them on the importance of vaccines, flea, tick and heartworm prevention, and yearly exams.
Outside of work, Bri owns her own pet care business. She enjoys weightlifting (so she can always pick up the large dogs at work), and reading in bed with her three cats, Bennie, Baker and Bender surrounding her.
Tori was raised in Alaska, an enormous change from the warm weather of Athens, Greece where she was born. Tori’s family also brought their collie, Robacco, to their chilly new home. Tori didn’t really love the cold weather in Alaska, but Robacco sure did, and the two explored their new frontier together. The bond they shared was incredible and the start of Tori’s obsession with animals.
Tori moved to New Jersey in 2020 and began working with the Parsippany Animal Hospital team in 2022. She is amazing with our animal patients. Her friendly demeanor wins them over in minutes and they are calm and secure when greeted.
Tori spends her free time with her playful black Lab, Gidget. She loves spending time with her family and baking bread and making coffee for them. Tori looks forward to owning a big home with plenty of property to accommodate all the pets she hopes to have.
Growing up, Cristina visited her grandparents every summer in Ecuador. They had a variety of farm animals that she cared for with the guidance of her grandparents. She learned the unique psychical and personality characteristics of each and tended to their every need. She loved them all and hated saying goodbye every August. Back home, her family always had cats and dogs. She grew up loving her furry friends and spending her summer surrounded by animals.
Cristina is nurturing and loves to care for animals. She believes that every patient should receive affection and attention as if it were her own pet. She enjoys meeting new furry friends and assisting the doctor with all their needs. One of her favorite procedures is dental cleanings. The satisfaction of knowing the patient will feel better after its procedure and following up to ensure the improvement in its quality of life is rewarding to her.
In her spare time, Cristina loves hiking, entertains herself with cooking and baking, indulges in new cuisines, and enjoys watching horror movies.
