Ohad Barnea, D.V.M. graduated from Tufts University with an academically rigorous Thesis Degree. He completed his thesis on diabetes at Harvard University Medical School which was subsequently published as an abstract in the Journal “Diabetes”.

Dr. Barnea has applied the knowledge he acquired through his extensive research in his practice of veterinary medicine to his canine and feline patients. He especially enjoys and excels in difficult cases involving dermatology and internal medicine.

Dr. Barnea, who has practiced veterinary medicine since 1992, is currently associated with the American Veterinary Medical Association, the New Jersey Veterinary Medical Association and the Northern New Jersey Veterinary Medical Association. He keeps current by attending at least two cutting edge continuing education seminars a year.

Having loved and cared for a variety of pets throughout childhood, Dr. Barnea’s choice of veterinary medicine was a perfect match. He says his education, research and clinical experience in practice have come full circle with what has always filled his heart: happy, healthy animals.

Dr. Barnea is married and has two children. In his spare time, Dr. Barnea enjoys reading, classical music and jazz, scuba diving, gourmet cooking, grilling and traveling.

Marcela Salas VMD graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 2000. Since then she has practiced compassionate, scientifically rigorous medical care at leading private clinics and nonprofit organizations around the greater NYC area.

Dr. Salas tailors treatment by evaluating pet health holistically and listening to owners closely. As a skilled practitioner of surgery, dentistry, dermatology, clinical pathology, and ultrasound, she aims to provide comprehensive treatments while minimizing visits and stress. Comfortable with the challenging medical cases and the emergencies, she also strives to improve the quality of life and longevity of pets of all ages, and feels it is important to create a healthy pet-vet bond early.

Dr. Salas holds both NY and NJ state licenses and is accredited by AVMA and USDA. She stays current on best practices through regular continuing education courses and veterinary conferences.

A true animal lover since childhood, her goal has been to provide care to any animal in need. Having performed hundreds of surgeries for animal rescue organizations, Dr. Salas is thrilled to join the TVC team! She shares her Closter home with two quirky cats, a cranky Chihuahua, and a prodigious child.
