Elise Powell, Medical Director

DVM

Dr. Elise Powell joined VCA South Arundel Animal Hospital in July 2020, and has been practicing in the region for over a decade. Her medical style focuses on a holistic approach to preventative care with a strong belief that optimal health and happiness is achieved when an animal's nutritional, genetic, behavioral and environmental needs are coordinated and addressed in a well balanced manner. Among her many passions is training and behavior, with over 25 years of experience in training, particularly as it relates to animal relinquishment and rescue. In practice, this knowledge is utilized to cultivate lifelong strong relationships between pet and owner. She has a particular fondness for getting puppies and kittens on the right track, but she also has a tender place in her heart for geriatric animals and pain management. She is certified in veterinary medical acupuncture.

In her spare time, Dr. Powell can be found outdoors. She loves cycling, running, hiking, traveling, and spending time on the water. She shares her home with her husband and two daughters. She has a German Shepherd named Bisous, a black Labrador named Kossar, and darling tuxedo cat, named Ukee.
