Dr. Robyn Lefort joined Forrest Avenue Animal Hospital in February 2008. Originally from Delaware, Dr. Lefort graduated from Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine in May 2005, practiced at a large animal ambulatory service in Brooklyn, Connecticut for two and a half years, then moved back home to join Forrest Avenue. She originally served as a mixed animal practitioner but then life happened! She met and married her husband, Aaron, had 2 beautiful boys, Austyn and Wyatt, and realized it was time to narrow her focus and her time on small animals. She misses the large animal world but truly loves seeing everyone's puppy dogs and kitty cats. Her own animal "kids" include 2 cats, Stella and Ayrshire (previously dairy farm kittens), and 1 Sheltie, Miller, who was rescued as a puppy by the staff of Forrest Avenue after being hit by a car. She loves being a part of the Forrest Avenue family and is continually grateful for her hard-working, compassionate staff. She looks forward to meeting you and your pet and extending a heartfelt welcome to our hospital!
