Island Animal Hospital Staff Profiles

Dr. Jaclyn Luckstone

Managing DVM
Dr. Luckstone is very excited to move into her new role as managing veterinarian at Island Animal Hospital. She feels strongly about upholding the same values Dr. Rossiter has for many years - practicing progressive, high-quality veterinary medicine and providing the best client service experience possible. She happily escaped the long, cold winters of the northeast and joined us in January 2013. Dr. Luckstone graduated from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine in 2009 and completed her clinical year at North Carolina State University. She has a special interest in caring for birds and exotic pets, but also enjoys canine/feline internal medicine, pain management, and holistic medicine including laser therapy and acupuncture. Outside of the office, her hobbies include photography, baking and spending time with her own pets: Maddy, a black Lab; Indiana Jones, a Vizsla; and Linnie, a lineolated parakeet.
