About Me

Hello, this is Dr. Jeffrey Levy.

I am a housecall veterinarian that has served the NYC Metropolitan area for over twenty years.

I have been fortunate to have spent my life working at a profession that is among the most rewarding in the world; the practice of veterinary medicine.

Little did I know when I began my career many years ago, that besides being a gratifying endeavor, that it would also prove to be so entertaining!

By assisting so many pets and their owners I have recorded a wealth of anecdotes and collected a trove of personal stories that relate to the special bond we human beings share with our animal friends, and importantly, how they relate to the human condition.

I plan to continue to share these wonderful and inspiring tales with a wider audience in an enchanting, life-affirming and uplifting way, that could be "Just what the doctor ordered" in these challenging times.



My Objective

I hope to attract collaborative creative talent, to produce a live and/or animated television, film or theatrical family-friendly and literary experience, that highlight the adventures of a big-city housecall veterinarian character and assistants, as they minister to the needs of their animal patients during their housecall rounds.

Here are samples of the many lectures, talks and press interviews I’ve given over the years.

Excerpt from

"Dr. Levy, a certified veterinary acupuncturist, assists with rehabilitation and pain management for pets whose owners want to avoid medication or surgery."

Excerpt from WBAI Radio

"You treat all kinds of animals... you've treated a dog who had lost the use of his hind legs and (with) acupuncture, helped gain some mobility."

Excerpt from

"Made up of musicians who are also involved in the animal welfare community, the band has evolved through the years and has featured everyone from a sea lion trainer to an animal psychic to a pet tarot card reader who plays percussion."
