Dr. Joseph Aquino
Dr. Joey Aquino grew up in a small New Jersey suburb near Long Beach Island. His first dog was found in the street in his parents’ north Jersey hometown and would protect him as a baby, play basketball with him like Air Bud, and allow him to do all the crazy things a toddler does with their companion. His love for her and other animals at a young age, along with his family’s support, pushed him toward a career in veterinary medicine at a young age.
Dr. Aquino attended Rutgers University for his bachelor’s degree in animal science before attending Ross University for his doctorate. He completed a year of clinical studies at Oklahoma State University, with externships in Kannapolis and West Point, Nebraska.
He started his career at MAH, and after a brief period practicing in Charlotte, is back in the saddle at his original stomping grounds. Dr. Aquino currently shares his home with a 1-year-old tortie cat, Magnolia.
Within the field, Dr. Aquino has a passion for client communication, compassionate patient care, parasite prevention, and endocrinology.
He is Fear Free Certified. In his spare time, he enjoys listening to music, collecting records, attending shows and concerts, staying in shape at the gym and at NoDa Brewing Run Club, reading fiction and music books, biking, hiking, and attending Charlotte’s lustrous brewery scene. He is excited to be back at Mooresville Animal Hospital and to work with our clients and their wonderful pets.
