Danielle Pentello D.V.M.
Dr. Danielle Pentello grew up in Massillon Ohio where she graduated from Canton Central Catholic High school in 2003. She then attended The Ohio State University as an Animal Science major and graduated in 2007 with her Bachelor's of Science in Agriculture. While working at a few clinics as kennel staff and a veterinary assistant, she continued her education and graduated from The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2011. After graduating veterinary school she started working at Pickerington Animal Hospital and has been here since.
She currently resides in Pickerington with her husband Peter and their two children. A daughter, Natalie and son, Lucas. Their family also includes two four legged children; a dog Brinkley and cat Dexter.
When she's not taking care of pets at the clinic, she loves baking and spending time with her family making memories. Her professional interests include soft tissue surgery disease prevention, and client education. She understands it is important for owners to understand what is going on with their pets and their treatment options in order to provide the best possible outcome. Every animal is different and there is no "cookie cutter" treatment for many.
She loves living in Pickerington and looks forward to the future years to come.
