Dr. Dana Schechter

Dr. Dana Schechter grew up in Northern New Jersey and knew from a very young age that she wanted to be a veterinarian. She attended every vet appointment for her dog, Gus, while growing up and shadowed his vet while in high school. She took every opportunity to work with all different species of animals and confirmed that veterinary medicine was her passion.

She received her veterinary degree from The Ohio State University. After completing a Small Animal Internship in Medicine and Surgery followed by two Small Animal Internal Medicine internships, she worked in general practice for 2 years. She knows that having the ability to end a patient’s suffering is vital to her role as a veterinarian. Having had to say goodbye to her own dog recently, she understands the importance of providing a peaceful ending in a comfortable, familiar environment to help minimize stress. She knows that it is never easy to say goodbye to a beloved pet and wants to help in whatever way she can.

Dr. Sharon Greenhut

Dr. Sharon Greenhut was born and raised in Rockland County, New York and attended Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute where she received her Bachelor of Science degree in May of 2002. She then went on to receive her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree at Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine in May of 2007 and she has been a small animal general practitioner ever since.

Although she enjoys those happy new puppy visits, Dr. Sharon has found the most rewarding part of her career is helping families navigate the impossible task of saying goodbye to their companion animals. Dr. Sharon prides herself in making the unbearable just a little easier for the families of these precious animals. She also finds peace in helping to eliminate the suffering of animals at the end of their lives by helping them to cross the rainbow bridge painlessly in the comfort of their own homes with dignity.

“I am so grateful for Home Heart Vet for their care during such a hard day and hard decision. Getting to spend the afternoon saying goodbye to my cat at home (not at the vet, which my kitty hated so much) meant everything to me…The procedure was so well crafted, as many other reviewers have mentioned, full of compassion and letting us have a proper goodbye. The vet and tech were just amazing. Thank you so much.”
