Our Team in Germantown, MD: Dr. Brad

Dr. Brad LeVora, Veterinarian

After graduating from the Ohio State University of Veterinary Medicine in 1987, Dr. Brad LeVora practiced medicine in the metropolitan DC area until 1993 when he became the new veterinarian and owner of Little Seneca Animal Hospital. This gave him the opportunity he had been looking for: the ability to own his own hospital and form long-term relationships with both pets and their owners. His mission along with the dedicated veterinarians and staff at Little Seneca Animal Hospital is to perform comprehensive, high-quality medicine for small animals through personalized services and client education. When he’s not at Little Seneca, Dr. Brad enjoys playing basketball, traveling to new places, and spending time with his family.
