Diana Ciminello, DVM, DVM, Associate Veterinarian

DVM, Texas A&M University


Dr. Ciminello is a native Massachusetts resident who attended the University of New Hampshire for undergraduate studies before moving to Texas to attend veterinary school. She graduated with honors from Texas A&M University, but is pleased to be back in New England to beat the heat. Dr. Ciminello has a special place in her heart for the less traditional pets. While she loves dogs and cats, she also enjoys seeing small mammals, as well as some reptiles and birds. In her spare time she hikes the trails with her Catahoula Leopard dog Symphony and hones her billiards skills against her husband.


Specialty Care

Sometimes sick or injured pets need the care of a veterinary medical specialist. When that happens, VCA specialty hospitals work closely with the general practitioner veterinarians who refer cases to us in order to provide seamless veterinary care to your pet. When your pet is facing any kind of serious illness or injury, our specialty referral hospitals will provide the compassionate and expert care your beloved pet needs.

Our goal is to make sure that when you and your pet are in need that you have access to board certified specialists who are up to date on the very latest developments in their field. In our state of the art hospitals, our specialists also have access to the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment tools and techniques from ultrasonography and endoscopy to CAT scans and even MRI.

As part of the VCA family, we have over 83 specialty hospitals across the US and Canada which provide referral specialty care, so there may be one near you. Our specialized services include: behavior, cardiology, critical care, dentistry, dermatology, integrative medicine, internal medicine, neurology, oncology, ophthalmology, radiology, rehabilitation, reproduction, and surgery.
