Jules has been a Client Family Member and close friend to Dr. Maria for many years.  He has always been a part of the Chasewood Family and took care of our computers, software, networking, and all around equipment needs and projects. Jules has been such an invaluable asset to our practice that we asked him to join the team in a more official capacity because of his many years of business experience.

Stephanie Gatto

Dr.'s Nurse

Stephanie joined our team in March 2013, as a Nursing Assistant and has rapidly proven herself to acquire the title of Dr.'s Nurse. Stephanie's love for our furry friends AND their parents is quite obvious as she assists Dr. Maria during appointments, or goes over after surgery discharge instructions. Stephanie always has a smile and an encouraging word to share with everyone she interacts with. 

One of Stephanie's passions is giving your furry friend a shiny clean smile.  If your pet needs a dental cleaning you can be sure the results will be worth smiling about!  Stephanie offers a free dental consult to all our established Client Family Members for their fur-babies.

Stephanie is currently furthering her education in the Veterinary Field online, and  you'll find her in the practice most days shining her special light on everything she does.

A caring, compassionate vet with great staff.  Dr Maria spends a lot of time with each patient.  She discusses all the options in detail.  There is no pressure to choose the most expensive treatment.  The appointments have always been on time.  My dogs are always excited to go to the vet because she treats them so kindly.   I don't think you can find a better vet.

We've used many vet clinics in many states, since we've moved a lot.  

Dr. Maria Lowry is one of the best vet doctors we've come across.  One of our cats has Lymphoma and was being treated by an internist, who was not doing such a good job of keeping him as healthy as possible, under the circumstances, and costing us lots of payouts doing one blood test after another, one anti-biotic after the other, which only caused him to lose his appetite make his situation worse.  His condition got so bad, we were positive he would have to be put down.  We took him to Dr. Lowry and, through her EXPERTISE and INGENUITY, she saved his life for another day, as they say.  And, she has taken wonderful care of our other two, one of which has renal failure.  She doesn't look for profit, she concentrates on the health and well being of your pet only.....an amazing breath of fresh air.

I HIGHLY RECOMENNED DR. MARIA LOWRY; she is one of the best!!!!!

I can NOT say enough good things about Chasewood Animal Hospital!  Dr Maria & her staff is so caring and takes her time with you and your pet.  Marina, the Hospital Director, is fantastic!  Recently she helped me with an issue involving my dog's meds.  Went WAY ABOVE & beyond to help and FAR EXCEEDED my expectations!!!  When does that happen???!!!  Love, love this Vet  Clinic.

We took our very sick dog in on Saturday, thinking that he might have to be euthanized.  after going to 4 different vets in the past nine months, 1 of them a very popular local vet in Jupiter, all we had accomplished was flushing $3,000 down the toilet and had been browbeaten in a very condescending manner because we wouldn't continue to submit our dog for more expensive, useless tests and treatments.  no vet should insinuate that you are a bad pet owner because you have a budget.

We were very upfront with dr. maria, and within 10 minutes, she had clipped a skin sample and put it under a microscope, in front of us, and was showing us the Demodex mite crawling through my dog's sample on the computer screen!  it was as easy as that!  we were minutes away from putting or dog to sleep because other vets were more interested in racking up big bills doing complicated tests, and this wonderful woman immediately thought to do the simple, logical thing, even if it was not something that would line her pockets.  within 48 hours, our dog has gone from near unconsciousness to up and about, even pushing a his favorite ball around, begging us to play fetch! 

i cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr. maria and her staff.  she has gained lifelong customers in us and our 2 Cocker Spaniels.  i will shout from the rooftops to recommend her and can say that i have more trust in her than any other vet, spanning 2 different states.

Vet care costs money, that is part of the deal when you own a pet.  but just like people's healthcare, most people have a budget and to find a vet that doesn't beat you up because of that is rare in our experience.  Dr. maria is kind, compassionate and obviously puts her patients first, and that is why i totally recommend her.
