Veterinary Assistant/Kennel Staff

Theresa Viesto

Theresa started with Mt. Pleasant in 2011 as a kennel attendant. She is a graduate of Newtown High School and attended Southern Connecticut State University. She lives in Newtown with her mother, sister, and their family dogs, including her own, Tehya, a Labrador Retriever.

She has learned the art of breeding and started breeding Labrador Retrievers.

Theresa's role has grown over the years, caring for not only our client's pets, but also for Dr. Vali’s show dogs. She trains with them to get ready for shows and sometimes will even show them herself! Theresa participates with Tehya as well for obedience and breed competition. She also will often assist with the reproduction work and helps the technicians with medical procedures.
