Heather Troyer, DVM, DABVP, CVA, CVPP

Board Specialized in Canine and Feline Practice

Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist

Certified Veterinary Pain Practitioner


Dr. Troyer graduated from the Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2001. She completed a one-year internship at the Animal Medical Center in NY, NY from 2001-2002 and joined the staff at Oradell Animal Hospital in 2005 as a member of the general medicine and surgery group. In 2008, Dr. Troyer became board certified through the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners in Canine and Feline Practice (general medicine and surgery), which awards specialty certification to practitioners who demonstrate expertise above and beyond what is required to practice general veterinary medicine. In 2009, Dr. Troyer helped to create the Oradell CARES (Companion Animal Relief to End Suffering) program. Oradell CARES is designed to assist families and patients with hospice and care-giver support issues through both in-home evaluation and out-patient management. In addition, Dr. Troyer was awarded certification in veterinary acupuncture through the Chi Institute in Reddick, Florida, in 2010, and completed additional curricula in Tui-Na, a unique form of massage specific for Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine. She most recently rounded out her education by becoming a Certified Veterinary Pain Practitioner through the International Veterinary Academy of Pain Management in 2014. She practices integrative medicine, especially in cases where quality of life issues are paramount, and practices both outpatient and in-home pain management using both eastern and western techniques. She has co-authored publications  to medical journals such as the Journal of the American Animal Hospital Association, as well as Clinician’s Brief and Veterinary Team Brief, and actively promotes continuing education at the Oradell Animal Hospital through lectures and wet labs, and promotion of student externship programs. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her children, running, and cooking.
