Michael Maida, DVM, Medical Director

DVM, University of Bologna


Dr. Michael Maida graduated from the University of Bologna in Bologna, Italy in 1978. He completed an internship at the Animal Medical Center in New York City from July 1978 to September 1979, and on September 1, 1979 he started practicing at the Closter Animal Hospital. This was the culmination of a goal that he had pursued from the time he was a freshman in high school - to work as a veterinarian for dogs and cats in an efficient, friendly and warm animal hospital, offering excellent medical care and services with the support of a caring well knit staff who shares his love for animals.

Dr. Maida has been married for 33 years to his wife Nancy, and he has two children, a son Stephen and a daughter Megan. His four-legger family currently includes Nori, a 13 year old fawn whippet, Journey, an 8 year old golden retriever, Annie, a 4 year old red brindle and white whippet and Scarlet, a 10 year old sealpoint ragdoll cat. Dr. Maida enjoys traveling, reading, skiing, crossword puzzles and gardening. He is also an avid runner and has completed three marathons and will be running in the New York City marathon in November.
