Dr. Curt D. Heyde:

He graduated 1994 from the University of Pennsylvania. He broadened his experience by working for several small animal practices, as well as a small animal emergency clinic. In 1998 he started working for Dr. Giuliani, who's practice he bought in 2000. He always looks for ways to improve medical care, and since 2007 he added acupuncture and chinese herbal medicine to the traditional western medicine. Vetstem therapy and laser therapy are part of his treatment options as well. What he truly strives for is the individual attention every case deserves. For this reason, we have extended our appointment times to 30 min. to assure that all concerns are addressed appropriately.  


Dr. Michelle D. Harris:

Originally from New Jersey, Dr. Harris is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine. She completed an internship in Large Animal Medicine and Field Service at Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine and Massachusetts Equine Clinic, then returned to Penn for a residency in Large Animal Internal Medicine after which she became board-certified in large animal internal medicine. After practicing in the emergency department at Penn's New Bolton Center, Dr. Harris has moved to the Main Line and the world of small animals. Like Dr. Heyde, she trained at the Chi Institute for acupuncture, which she has used on large animals. She lives with 4 interesting cats and a beautiful pit bull mix, Ella.

Here she receives some assistance from Sallee treating a patient with electro-acupuncture, while 7 guinea pigs on a play date are watching. 



Dr. Annie Howell:

A 2018 graduate from the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine, Annie is originally from Ebensburg, Pennsylvania. She lives with her husband Micah, her Pomeranian Shark, and her cat Fanny. Although she is a recent grad, Annie has grown up working in the veterinary profession her entire life. She is passionate about caring for each patient as if he or she is her own pet, and cannot wait to meet the Pets First community.
