Hopmeadow Animal Hospital's Veterinarians

Dr. Mooney received his undergraduate at Ohio State University. He then received his DVM at the University of Parma in Italy in 1981; one of the oldest veterinary schools in the world, founded in the 11th century. His mother can attest that as a child he was always bringing home stray animals, and his wife can attest that he is still doing the very same thing! When not working, he enjoys many hobbies including gardening and collecting Lionel Trains. He is an avid sports enthusiast who loves Red Sox baseball, football, UConn basketball and tennis. At home he has three cats, Max, Strider and Tummy, and two dogs, Jasper and Lilly. Dr. Mooney lives in West Hartford with his wife Judy, and has a daughter who is an audiologist residing in Atlanta and a son who is an actor in NYC.
