ASK THE VET


Dr. Diane Deresienski VMD, DABVP


A graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, Dr. Deresienski has been with Bowman Animal Hospital since 1993. She is also an Adjunct Assistant Professor at North Carolina State University where she teaches veterinary students about exotic animal practice. Dr. Deresienski has always had an interest in wildlife conservation and is a founding and past board member of the Piedmont Wildlife Center in Durham.


In 2000, Dr. D,as she is affectionately called, became a specialist in Canine and Feline Practice by passing an extensive certification exam. She is one of only a few with this designation throughout the state of North Carolina. She enjoys general and orthopedic surgery, and has a special interest in Juvenile Pubic Symphysiodesis. In 2007, she received her PennHip Certification, qualifying her to perform the unique testing methods that can identify dogs at risk for hip dysplasia when they are only four months old.


As an exotic veterinarian, Dr. D treats a variety of pets, ranging from birds and reptiles to small mammals such as rats, rabbits, and guinea pigs.


Dr. D lives in Raleigh with her husband and an interesting menagerie: an African Budget frog, a ball python, a kitty named, Looney Tunes, and a dog named, Zeb. When not working or teaching, Dr. D enjoys yoga, getting away to the coast and her season tickets to the North Carolina Ballet.
