Dr. Jessica Cosentino joined the clinician staff at Central Animal Hospital in July 2017. She earned a B.S from Virginia Tech in Biology with a minor in English Literature and Creative Writing: Fiction. Dr. Cosentino then went on to complete her doctorate in veterinary medicine at the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine in 2013. After graduation, she worked as a general small animal practitioner in Northern Virginia for 4 years. Excited to escape the traffic and D.C. hustle and bustle, Dr. Cosentino then moved to St. Petersburg with her husband and two dogs: Lupin (a Schipperke) and Kage (a German Shorthaired Pointer.) Her veterinary interests include surgery (soft tissue), dentistry, cardiology, canine reproduction/neonatal care, and the human-animal bond. Outside of the office, Dr. Cosentino can be found spending quality time with her family, running, gardening, and stand-up paddleboarding.
