Teresa Defrancesco

Biography

Dr. DeFrancesco earned her DVM degree from Cornell University and is board certified in Cardiology and Emergency/Critical Care Medicine. She has worked at NC State Veterinary Hospital since 1992 when she started her cardiology residency with Drs. Keene and Atkins. Dr. “D”, as most know her, has received numerous teaching and clinical service awards over the years. When not in the clinics, Dr. D enjoys spending time with her family. She is married and has two adorable children. She is fluent in Spanish and a loyal servant to her dogs, Buddy and Daisy. She loves to unwind in a weekly Yoga class and by walking the dogs, bird watching, reading, cooking and traveling.

Research Interest

The vast majority of my research is clinically oriented. The two most recent research foci are understanding feline heartworm disease and delay of progression to heart failure in dogs with degenerative valvular disease.
