Effie, Dr. Otis, and Keene

Dr. Danielle Davignon was born and raised in northwestern Connecticut.  She obtained undergraduate degrees in biology and Spanish at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA.  She then obtained a Master’s degree in reproductive physiology at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY followed by a DVM degree at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. 

Following veterinary school, Danielle worked in mixed animal practice in central Maine for three years.  She then made the decision to specialize in small animal internal medicine and completed an internship at Angell Animal Medical Center in Boston, followed by a residency in Internal Medicine at Cornell University.  During her residency, Danielle was involved in research projects evaluating thyroid hormone measurements in cats and minimally invasive diagnostic tests for gastrointestinal bleeding in dogs.  She was the recipient of a resident research award from the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (ACVIM) in 2015.  Danielle obtained board certification in small animal internal medicine with the ACVIM in 2015 and has been practicing internal medicine in the Albany region since that time.

Danielle enjoys the diagnosis and management of complex internal medicine cases, particularly endocrine, immune-mediated, and liver diseases.  She knows many of these diseases can be overwhelming for pet owners, and likes that her job gives her the opportunity to educate her clients so they can make informed decisions about their pet’s healthcare.  She enjoys forming long-standing relationships with clients while working together to design a treatment plan tailored to their pet, thus emphasizing quality of life in animals with chronic illness.

In her spare time, Danielle enjoys traveling, playing and watching ice hockey, and any outdoor activities such as hiking, camping, running, snow-shoeing, etc.
