Lori Cavalcanti, Staff Veterinarian


Dr. Cavalcanti grew up in the small town of Chanute, KS; where from an early age she discovered her passion for animals and in her youth began volunteering at the practice of a close family friend, to which she returned to work in the summers while in College.  She completed her undergraduate studies in Human Biology at the University of Kansas and proceeded to pursue her DVM studies at Kansas State University, graduating in 2000. 
She started her career in a mixed animal practice in Derby, KS, where in addition to small companion animals, she saw a considerable equine case load.  Beginning in 2001, her work has focused solely in small companion animal practice, and her career has since taken her to Long Beach, CA, Nashville, TN, San Francisco, CA, and most recently, Northeast Ohio.  While loving all aspects of practice,  Dr. Cavalcanti takes special interest in Dermatology and Behavior cases.

She has three dogs and two cats, all of which were shelter adoptions – a cause near to her heart.  While not at work, Dr. Cavalcanti and her husband, who is also a veterinarian, keep a busy schedule supporting their three boys' interests in football, lacrosse, soccer and band, as well as volunteering with school activities.  She also enjoys spending time with her family participating in outdoor activities, such as wakeboarding, hiking, and snow skiing.
