Dr. Ray Deiter has been a veterinarian since 1975. Having graduated from the University of Pennsylvania, Ray practiced veterinary medicine at the Bronx Zoo and New York Aquarium. He was a member of the New York Zoological Society and went on to care for the New York City Mounted Police Force and then the San Francisco Mounted Police Force. Ray has experience from exotics to small animals.
In 1993, Ray became a certified acupuncturist to help his 18 and 1/2 year dog with movement. There was a noticeable difference in his dog’s ability to get around, relax, and to generally improve the quality of his life.
Ray is also certified in ASIF bone plating from Ohio State. Bone plating greatly assists in repairing broken limbs. He is also a Field Associate at the California Academy of Sciences.
