Dr. Oliver (clients and coworkers call her Dr. O) is thrilled to work with the dedicated veterinary health care team at Benessere Animal Hospital. She has considered North Carolina her home since 1997, earned a bachelors degree in 1987 in Physical Therapy from East Carolina University and then graduated with her D.V.M. from the North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2008. After graduating, Dr. Oliver began her full-time veterinary career working as an alternative and general medicine associate at a small animal practice in Charlotte, North Carolina. While doing this, she also worked part-time as a veterinary nutrition resident at North Carolina State University until 2011. Dr. Oliver decided to become a veterinarian because she is passionate about preventing animals from pain and suffering, particularly because of the physical challenges that many older and disabled pets face. Even though she enjoys seeing many different pets every day, she is in pain management, veterinary nutrition, soft tissue surgery, exotics, stem cell therapy, and geriatrics. There are several different professional associations that Dr. Oliver is a member of,
including AAHA, AVMA, AAFP, NCVMA, AAVN, AAHA, and IVAPM. She also supports three local charities, The Haley Graves Foundation, Break The Chain Kennel KRU, and Bingo Pet Hospice. Dr. Oliver lives in Greensboro, North Carolina with her wife, Audra, and they have two adult children, Patrick
and Billy. They also share their home with their beloved cats and dogs. Dr. Oliver feels very fortunate to work with the professional team at Benessere Animal Hospital and to serve all of the wonderful patients and pet parents who come into our hospital.
