VCA Herndon-Reston Animal Hospital

Cara Toscano, DVM, Associate Veterinarian

DVM, University of Guelph


Dr. Cara Toscano received her a B.S. degree in Pre-Veterinary Medicine and Biology-Life Sciences from the University of Findlay in Ohio. She then attended The Ontario Veterinary College in Guelph, Ontario to earn her DVM. She is interested in general practice, community outreach, and wildlife/zoological medicine.

If you were to ask Dr. Toscano WHY she chose the veterinary profession she would say,  "I became a veterinarian because... in high school I was fascinated when we would dissect frogs in biology class. I wanted to know everything about how the animal body worked and functioned. This fascination has turned into a career in veterinary medicine."

We are excited to have Dr. Toscano on our team  here at VCA Herndon Reston.  Please join us in welcoming her to our hospital on July 7th from 9am- 7pm by stopping by VCA Herndon Reston  for a meet and greet and refreshments!
