Dr. Angelo Rosado
Dr. Angelo Rosado Jr hails from the great borough of Brooklyn. Dr. Rosado has been practicing Veterinary Medicine in the Tri-State area since his graduation from St. George’s University in the summer of 2010. He is thrilled to call BVC his full time home. His genuine, God given desire is to provide compassionate, honest, and loving medical care to the four legged fur babies residing in and around the Bensonhurst area. On Sunday mornings he can be found fellowshipping with loved ones in church, followed by watching football with his brothers (in the winter) and enjoying outdoor walks in the summer.
He loves French bulldogs and has a strong interest in pain management. Dr. Rosado looks forward to developing genuine and honest relationships with pet owners which will then allow him the freedom and flexibility to provide the best care possible to all of his beloved patients.
Carmen and Jesse
Carmen and Jesse have developed their passion for animals at a young age so it was destined that they would find themselves a career in the animal medical field.
Carmen started working in the veterinary field in 1997 when she decided to get an after school job at an animal hospital in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. She quickly found herself as head technician of the clinic a few years later. Jesse began his career by working in an animal boarding facility. In 2009, while transitioning jobs to a new animal clinic, he joined a team, where he officially met Carmen.Carmen and Jesse became fast friends and it only took one year before these two fell in love.
In 2010, Dr Zawie took a position as an associate at the same clinic as Carmen and Jesse. A couple of years later in 2012, when Dr Zawie decided to open his first animal hospital in Bensonhurst, he offered both Carmen and Jesse a position. After several years of hard work Carmen and Jesse were promoted to managers of Bensonhurst Vet Care.
In 2017, Jesse and Carmen officially tied the knot! It has been an amazing journey for them both. When they are not at work they love spending all of their time with Jesse’s 10 year old son, Jacob. Carmen has enjoyed being a stepmom since Jacob was 2 years old. They love vacationing, and spending time with their family, friends and their 19 year old cat Henny.
