Dr. Lisa Underwood

I was born in Fort Benning, Georgia, but ultimately landed in New England, and started my collegiate education at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.  I later received my bachelor’s degree followed by my Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine at the Ohio State University, where I was petitioned to join Phi Beta Kappa for scholastic achievement.  Since graduating, I have received numerous scholastic and community service awards. I have practiced in New York, New Hampshire and Massachusetts in multi- doctor, multi-disciplined practices.  I have now returned to Greenfield as the proprietor of Pioneer Valley Veterinary Hospital.  My main medical interests are internal medicine and soft tissue surgery, with focus on preventative medicine. I work closely with, and am the primary care physician for numerous police K-9 units.     
Over the years, I have worked as an arm of the Department of Agriculture as a supervisory role at agricultural events throughout the state, testing draft horses and oxen to maintain a drug-free, competitive atmosphere.  My private interests include white water rafting, most competitive sports (especially football!), fall country fairs, the arts, and my pets, including a rather demanding parrot, a little black pug that engages in terrorist activities wherever she goes, and a foster hound that decided she was home.
I have been blessed to have a hard working, compassionate team, that strives to provide a clean, safe and congenial atmosphere to clients and their family pets, including the smaller, fuzzier creatures like rabbits, hamsters, rats and ferrets. We have excelled in dental and surgical procedures and offer state of the art facilities with Ultrasound, Digital Dental Radiographs, ECG & Capnography monitoring, and a Full In House Laboratory.
