Annie Notarangelo has been one of Everhart Veterinary’s esteemed Associate Veterinarians for over a decade.
A Baltimore native, Annie grew up with a love of science and animals—both in all forms. After her tenure to Virginia Tech and then Virginia Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine, she returned to Baltimore to be closer to both her husband’s and her own families near Hunt Valley.
“I grew up in Lutherville and went to Cathedral of Mary our Queen for elementary school and NDP for high school,” Annie proudly remembers. “I love animals, science and healing so veterinary medicine is the perfect fit. Also, I love that in veterinary medicine, you not only help animals but also the people who love them.”
Although Annie’s knowledge and experience reaches all aspects of veterinary medicine, her first love—and specialty—is with small animals, and internal medicine, endocrinology and urology. She even admits that those focused areas present the specific challenges that keep her compassion thriving and her fascination with the field at its maximum. “I enjoy putting the puzzle pieces together and solving the mystery that is often involved with complex cases,” she says. “These cases often involve regular follow-up and management and I enjoy getting to know the animals and their families as I help them care for these pets.”
Annie’s love of family is matched only by her own passion for animals—including her family’s own pets. She and her husband of eleven years—the Vice President of a major aircraft sales company—are the proud parents of an eight-year-old son and six-year-old daughter—as well as the “pet parents” of one dog and three cats, all of whom benefit from her expertise! “Piper is a four-year old terrier mix that came from Barcs with a broken femur that Dr. Goodman repaired with a femoral head ostectomy surgery,” she recalls. “She is loving and loyal but does not like strangers—but she does enjoy munching grass in the yard and chasing her kitties! … Potter is our sixteen-year-old black cat, born near the Baltimore zoo. I acquired him while doing a zoo internship in college, and Rocky is a handsome and shy gray, long-haired cat that was part of a litter surrendered to Everhart about four years ago. His siblings were adopted by fellow Everhart employees. Also, we have Poppy, our family’s kitty. Poppy is a sassy 1 year old tabby cat who was found and brought to Everhart by a Good Samaritan when she was about 2 weeks old. I brought her home for the ‘weekend’ and she never left.”
