Dr. Randon Feinsod is a New York native who was born to amazing parents. Despite the fear of their home becoming a zoo, they found a way to encourage his love of animals. They strongly enforced an educational approach to pet keeping that later evolved into his approach to veterinary medicine. As a child, when he wanted a pet snake, his parents had him research each possible candidate to determine the adult size, preferred food item, and appropriate enclosure. That report became a building block to Dr. Feinsod’s education. It provided an environment for self-teaching and analytic thought that has transferred to the practice of veterinary medicine.
Dr. Feinsod received his Bachelor’s degree in the Biological Basis of Behavior from the University of Pennsylvania. He attended Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine and completed his clinical year at Oklahoma State University. He also completed a preceptorship at the Oklahoma City Zoo. Over his 14 years of practice he has gained extensive surgical experience. He enjoys and excels in all kinds of surgery whether it involves organs, soft tissue or bones in dogs, cats, reptiles and even birds and pocket pets. He is almost as passionate about orthopedics as he is about reptiles! His new special interest is endoscopy. Exploring the less invasive approaches to routine surgical procedures.
