Dr. Anthony (“Tony”) Cappa (shown above taking in a baseball game with his wife, Jill, and kids, Macy and Tyler) joined the faculty this month as a clinical instructor in the shelter medicine program, but he says he’s “familiar with the University as I graduated from the Veterinary College in 2006.”

Using 10 words or less, describe what your role at the college is:

Instruct students in high-quality, high-volume spay/neuter techniques

What is your favorite part of your job?

Interacting with the students in a small group setting and helping them further develop their clinical skills

 What would your coworkers be surprised to learn about your life outside of work?

My idea of a relaxing Sunday is working outside in my yard.

Do you have any pets?

We recently saw the passing of our two guinea pigs, Spike and Brownie, so are currently pet-free. We will be in the hunt for a dog this spring.
