ABOUT

OUR HOSPITAL

Montgomery Veterinary Hospital was founded in 1989 by Dr. James "Jim" Fischer.  Jim put his heart and soul into the hospital forming it into one of the most reputable hospitals in Orange County today.  His veterinary skills and dedication to the animals was steadfast and unmistakable.  His compassion and commitment were unwavering.

Jim, without a doubt, loved what he did.  We, here at Montgomery Veterinary Hospital, love what we do.  We lost our founder on January 9, 2016 but our commitment to the hospital, and continuing his legacy, is as strong as ever.

We have restructured the hospital.  You will see the same old faces working behind the scenes but you will also see several new faces.  We will have a new team to assist you and your pet’s healthcare needs.  From general wellness, dentistry, spay and neuter, surgeries, to in depth diagnostics.  We hope to address all your pet’s healthcare needs as faithfully as we have in the past.

ABOUT

OUR STAFF

Melissa Grech-Attard, DVM

Owner, Veterinarian

Dr. Grech was raised in Orange County, New York and after a stint in California came to realize that her calling was here in the Hudson Valley Region.  Growing up, she was involved in the local horseback riding club, G&M, from the age of four until she went off to college at seventeen.  For as long as she can remember, she has had a passion for helping people with their animals, be they horses, dogs, cats, rabbits, or any other fur baby.

 

Dr. Grech graduated from Cornell University in 2006 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Animal Science. She went on to St. Kitts, where she earned her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Ross University, followed by her clinical year, which she completed at Auburn University in January of 2010.

 

Following graduation, she opened a mixed animal practice in Malta, Europe where she met her husband, Charles. Together, they returned to New York where she worked at the NYRA circuit of Thoroughbred racing at Belmont, Aqueduct, and Saratoga.

 

Dr. Grech has special interests in internal medicine, soft tissue surgery, and diagnostic imaging. She is also a certified dog trainer specializing in obedience and anxiety-caused behaviors. Above all, she strives to offer down-to-earth, honest, and passionate care to her patients and clients. In her spare time, she loves to find adventure with her beloved German Shorthaired Pointers, spend time with her daughter, husband and horses, and also lend a hand at the local humane societies and rescue groups.

Jocelyn first began caring for animals in the rescue world and worked very closely with many veterinarians and veterinary technicians. This exposure to the medical side of animal care made a huge impression and she knew she wanted to grow her skillset and help all of the pets she possibly could. Jocelyn makes it her mission everyday to make all visitors to the hospital feel welcome with a smile and a tasty treat. She currently lives in Pine Bush with her cats Ra, Princess, Pip and Squeak.

Julie Parenti
Client Care Specialist

Julie is a current resident in Wallkill. She has always had a
fascination for animals and her family always knew that’s where she would end up in her life. Her passion grew more for animals when she discovered different breeds of dogs,
and horses. She has always been a sucker for all sorts of dogs especially the ones who are just as excited to see her. When she is not home spending time with her very spoiled dachshund Zoey, she is trying to travel to Arizona every possible
chance she can get, barrel racing at local and upstate races, and hiking around in the great outdoors.

Lauren LaRocca
Client Care Specialist

She has worked in different shelters and rescues throughout the Hudson Valley taking care of both cats and dogs. Most recently, she was working for a large sanctuary with a focus in feral cat socialization and rehabilitation. Lauren has a passion for animals and is excited to be back at Montgomery Veterinary Hospital.
