Dr. Driehuys

Dr. Driehuys

Dr. Sunita Driehuys has been a practicing small animal veterinarian since 1994. She received her bachelor’s degree from Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster, PA. She received her veterinary degree in 1994 from the University of Pennsylvania with magna cum laude honors. She furthered her training with a one year internship that emphasized emergency and critical care medicine.

Since moving to the Triangle in 1996 she has practiced at several high-caliber small animal practices. These experiences led to her desire to create a veterinary practice that could combine the highest quality veterinary care with personalized attention and relationships.

This vision is now being fulfilled through Chapel Hill Mobile Veterinary Housecalls. A core practice philosophy is that the continuous pursuit of knowledge and education is the best way to care for her clients and patients. Dr. Driehuys has been certified as a Diplomate by the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners (ABVP) specializing in canine and feline practice. She lives in Chapel Hill, NC, with her husband and 3 sons.
