Dr. Alyssa Mistar
Dr. Mistar received her Bachelor of Science degree in Animal Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. While in college, Dr. Mistar participated in a study abroad program in which a group of animal-loving volunteers provided free veterinary services to areas of need in effort to combat animal over population. She loved that she was working closely with people and their pets. This experience solidified her decision to pursue a career in veterinary medicine. Dr. Mistar went on to obtain her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine and after spending 8 years in Champaign, she is happy to be back in the city she calls home as a member of South Loop Animal Hospital’s team!
Dr. Mistar’s veterinary passions include surgery, dentistry and behavior. She believes the best part of her job is the opportunity to strengthen the human-animal bond. Whether she is welcoming your family’s newest addition, diagnosing illnesses and alleviating pain, or being part of a gentle goodbye- she will always be a guide in determining what is best for both you and your pet.
In her free time, Dr. Mistar enjoys exploring new places, experimenting in the kitchen, catching up on her favorite television shows as well as relaxing at home with her fiancé, Eduardo, and their pets named Guinness and Whiskey.
