Dr. Suzanne Hennessy has been practicing in the local area since 1993. She graduated from veterinary school at UC Davis in 1992.
After graduation, she was offered a position at Gila Animal Hospital in Silver City, NM where she worked in a mixed animal practice. The following year she accepted a position at a clinic in Arroyo Grande, CA where she participated in both general practice and emergency duties.
In 1996, Dr. Hennessy and Dr. Kim Foster founded Pismo Beach Veterinary Clinic. They based their business plan on offering the highest quality veterinary services while still maintaining a personal, “small town” approach to client relations.
In 2009, Drs. Hennessy and Foster sold Pismo Beach Veterinary Clinic to Drs. Joel and Maxwell Conn who continue the tradition of the practice of excellence.
Throughout her career, Dr. Hennessy has had a special interest in medicine and surgery for working and competition dogs. Dog training has become her avocation and she has trained several dogs to participate in agility and obedience competitions. Golden Retrievers have become her favored breed, although over the years her heart has been touched by many engaging pets with many talents.
