Dr. Ralph Pratt
Veterinarian, Practice Owner
Ralph Pratt grew up in Worcester, Massachusetts. He was always interested in science, especially zoology. While working on his master’s in Zoology at the University of Rhode Island, he realized he wanted the broader perspective of veterinary medicine. After getting his master’s, he was accepted to the Tufts University of School of Veterinary Medicine. Now he is a Veterinarian and the Co-Owner (along with his wife, Dr. Amy Pratt) of West Greenwich Animal Hospital!
Dr. Amy Pratt
Veterinarian, Practice Owner
Amy Pratt spent her childhood summers in Greene, Rhode Island, on her grandmother’s farm. It was there that her love of animals blossomed—she bottle-fed orphaned kittens, rode ponies, cared for orphaned baby birds, and spent time with all manner of pets. She discovered that she really enjoyed figuring out problems and helping pets. Now she gets to do that every day as a Veterinarian and the Owner of West Greenwich Animal Hospital!
Dr. Betsy Richmond
Dr. Betsy Richmond remembers exactly where she was when she decided to become a veterinarian—sitting on the dirt runway of a tiny airport in Borneo, having just left a tropical rainforest study of orangutans. She realized she didn’t want to become a tropical rainforest ecologist and instead preferred the carpeting and bathroom tile of civilization!
Dr. Laura Brannigan
After graduating college with a business degree and working in the sales field, Laura Brannigan realized she wasn’t completely fulfilled. She decided to go back to school to become a veterinarian, and her journey led her all the way to her current position as Associate Veterinarian at West Greenwich Animal Hospital!
Dr. Amy L. Hopper
Dr. Amy L. Hopper is a lifelong pet owner herself, and she knows firsthand how intrinsic and invaluable our animal companions are to our lives. Being able to nurture and strengthen those bonds for others is a dream come true. She’s proud to serve as an Associate Veterinarian here at West Greenwich Animal Hospital!
Dr. Tia Meneses
Dr. Tia Meneses’ journey with animals began at age 15, when she got a job at the Potter League animal shelter. Today, as an Associate Vet at West Greenwich Animal Hospital, Dr. Tia loves helping clients through all stages of their pets’ lives, from puppy appointments to geriatric care. She has a particular soft spot for toy breed dogs and wants to help them live the pampered, healthy lives that they deserve!
Dr. Katee LoMonaco, DVM, cVMA
Dr. Katee LoMonaco grew up on Long Island, New York. When asked by her kindergarten teacher, “What do you want to be when you grow up?, she emphatically answered, “Veterinarian”. As a child, she frequently wheeled her cat in a stroller and wore a plastic stethoscope around the house. She has always had an intrinsic love for animals, nature, and figuring out how things work. As a veterinarian, she enjoys problem solving and finding new ways to strengthen the quality of life in her patients in a way that promotes the connection between people and their pets.
