Dr. Vena is recognized locally for her expertise in treating exotic animals. She has spent two decades gaining the knowledge needed to heal reptiles, amphibians, birds and other rare pets. Her interest in exotics was piqued during the four years she spent working at the Philadelphia Zoo, where she provided medical care to Galápagos tortoises, giraffes and other animals that require specialized handling.
