Dr. Kira Purdon, DVM, USDA Accredited

Dr. WeiserOriginally from Central Florida, I grew up in an animal centric household with a variety of critters. This gave me an immense appreciation for the love and enrichment that our furry family members add to our lives.

After graduating from Cornell University, I completed my internship at the Animal Medical Center where I spent much of my time in the ER unit. Learning from their highly skilled specialists equipped me with the ability to manage critical cases with the most advanced treatment options.

Though emergency medicine will always be a passion of mine, I craved long lasting client relationships and opted to transition into general practice. I had previously spent time at Worth Street Veterinary Center during my second year of vet school and was inspired by the entire team. It was a perfect fit as I loved Dr. DiPolo's integrative approach that allowed treatment plans to be tailored to each individual patient.

When I am not working I am usually spending time with my two four-legged children: Lucy (a Collie mix), Gulliver (a Maine Coon mix) and my partner David. We love cooking together, scuba diving, and partaking in all the adventures Manhattan has to offer.
