Dr. Lisa Beagan began her veterinary career as a partner in an equine practice in Maine, and spent her workdays making farm calls throughout the beautiful New England countryside in a well-stocked truck. She enjoyed getting to know and working with her patients where they were most comfortable—at home—and wanted to offer that same service to pet owners. When she founded Mobile Pet Vet in 2003, it was with a vision of promoting veterinary health care “with less stress for you and your pet.” The home exams offered by Mobile Pet Vet not only make the veterinary visit a happier one for your pet, but also allow Dr. Beagan to pursue her goal of building a deeper relationship on a personal level with your pet, and with you, the owner.
Dr. Beagan is a 1995 graduate of the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University. After two years in equine practice (working at a small animal referral practice on her days off), she moved to Florida with her husband Dave, who was in the Navy, and worked in a small animal clinic. Her time in the Sunshine State, with its giant bugs and year-round allergies, sparked an interest in dermatology. After several years in Florida, Dr. Beagan settled in Maryland and opened Mobile Pet Vet to pursue her passion for small animal internal medicine, but through the home visits she’d enjoyed as an equine practitioner. (Albeit with a slightly smaller vehicle!) She’s also in the process of completing a veterinary acupuncture certification through the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society, and hopes to integrate eastern and western medicine modalities in the practice.
Prior to becoming a veterinarian, Dr. Beagan completed General Electric’s financial management program and held management positions in sales, marketing, and finance with GE Plastics. Those experiences have been extremely beneficial in her role as veterinarian and business owner! She enjoys educating pet owners about health and has published articles in magazines such as Dog Fancy, Cat Nip, and Veterinary Technician, and hosted an “ask the vet” forum for two years at VetCentric.com.
She currently resides in Annapolis with her husband, daughter, son, Dalmatian, Labrador retriever, cat, two guinea pigs, and many fish. When not chauffeuring her family, she enjoys tennis, horseback riding, traveling, reading, and all things “foodie.”
Robin began her career as a Veterinary Technician in 1998. She worked as a technician in a traditional veterinary clinic for several years prior to starting with Mobile Pet Vet. She has been here since the inception of the practice and has been instrumental in all aspects of the business. For her, the personal touch of a house call visit is very rewarding, and much preferred to a traditional clinic setting. She takes tremendous pride in her work and strives to always provide the best care for Mobile Pet Vet’s patients.
Robin grew up in the Annapolis area where she still resides. She is currently pursuing a college degree. When time allows, she is happy to offer pet sitting services to clients. The proud mother of a wonderful little boy, Robin enjoys spending as much time as possible with her family (including her spunky sugar glider Savannah). On her days off she also enjoys sea kayaking, hiking, camping, painting, and relaxing with friends.
