Dr. Erin Belleville Veterinarian

Born and raised on a ranch in Louisiana, Erin began working with and learning from animals before she could even walk or talk. Throughout her career she has had the opportunity to work with a variety of species as a zookeeper, marine mammal trainer, and veterinarian. Each experience teaching her more as she performed and practiced positive reinforcement training techniques and veterinary medicine on reptiles, birds, dolphins, rhinos, and more. As a small animal practitioner she implements these same concepts with her patients and educates veterinary clinic staff and pet families about the importance and success of Fear Free in veterinary medicine. She is also passionate about integrative medicine, and is certified in Veterinary Medical Acupuncture. After multiple years in clinical practice, she transitioned to telehealth and veterinary relief work. In her free time, she enjoys water skiing, hiking, and traveling. She has 2 incredible senior rescue pups, and a very special horse who takes her on beautiful trail rides along the coast of California where she lives. Each year she is lucky to spend time in the Adirondack wilderness of upstate New York to enjoy lake life and time with family in the forested outdoors.
