Michelle Politano
Staff Veterinarian

Dr. Michelle Politano grew up in the Norwood, MA area. Her love of animals started at an early age, at the age of 3 she loudly announced "I want to be a VETERINARIAN when I grow up." 

Starting out in horse barns around race horses, her experience widened over time. When graduating from veterinary school in 2001, Michelle decided on a career in small animal medicine in surgery. She completed a rotating internship at VCA South Shore Animal Hospital and then joined the staff as an associate veterinarian. She remained at VCA South Shore until June of 2021 and joined VCA Roberts in August 2021.

Michelle considers her dental/surgical skills and experience as her two biggest skills. If you asked her what she likes best about her job, she’d say “My career is everything I ever wanted and more; my favorite part of my day to day job is interacting with pets and their owners- fostering the human animal bond and strengthening our relationships with pet parents and families.” Michelle is also a member of the AAHA, AVMA, and MVMA.

During her free time, Michelle likes to spend time with her husband, kids, and pets. Her furry family includes Franki (an 11 year old bulldog mix), Olive (a 7 year old Old English Bulldog), Remi (a 6 year old Labrador Retriever), Killian (a 2 year old Retriever Mix), Pabo (a 2 year old Retriever Mix) and Huey (a 4 month old DLH). They like to play sports together, travel, watch movies, and explore the coast and mountains.
