Carey Zumpano, DVM

Diplomate American Board of Veterinary Practitioners


In 2000, Dr. Zumpano began practicing in Baltimore while pursuing advanced training in ultrasound and completing an advanced certification in general practice by becoming a Diplomate of the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners. While his heart was always working in general practice, in 2005 he and his family returned to California where he worked in emergency and critical care medicine at the Pet Emergency and Specialty Center of Marin.

Two years later Dr. Zumpano’s wife took a faculty position at Johns Hopkins and they happily returned to Baltimore to settle down “for good.” In 2008, he started Pikesville Animal Hospital with the goal of providing the best care to pets and their owners as well as the best work environment for all of his staff members. He repeated his ABVP certification and made laparoscopy as the standard of care for all pets being spayed at Pikesville Animal Hospital. Dr. Zumpano continues to try to integrate laparoscopy and minimally invasive techniques into many procedures to improve patient outcomes and minimize their discomfort.

Dr. Zumpano and his wife have two children and a Dachshund mix (according to genetic breed testing) rescued from West Virginia named Rosie. For 20 years he has been a Diplomate of the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners, Canine and Feline Practice, having demonstrated extensive experience in multidisciplinary practice in addition to submitting case reports for approval and passing the examination process. In short, this title is a demonstration of a doctor’s commitment to being the best they can be.
