Learn Who We Are

  • Ann Marie Livengood, DVM

    Dr. Ann Marie Livengood grew up in Ararat, North Carolina and moved to Mount Airy when she was 11 years old. She spent her early teens at Mt. Airy High School before her acceptance into the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics, where she spent her junior and senior year. After graduation, she did her undergraduate work in Zoology at NC State University and then entered into the Veterinary School at NC State University. She spent a year in Fayetteville before joining Cobb Animal Clinic in Greensboro, NC as an associate veterinarian for 11 years. For the two years prior to the initiation of Pfafftown Animal Hospital, she worked supporting veterinary hospitals in the triad area as a relief veterinarian.

    Dr. Livengood is dedicated to providing services that far exceed basic pet care while providing a warm and compassionate environment for the client.  Even while running a growing practice, Dr. Livengood still finds time to play an active role in the community as well as her church. Starting a new practice would never have been possible without the love and support of her family. Raising three children and a husband is no easy job! 

  • Atalvin Zhiva, MV, RVT

    Vini has been with us since the hospital opened in 2007, but his experience started a long time ago assisting his father, who is a veterinarian. Born in the small European country of Albania, he graduated from Veterinary University in 2001 and has an Albanian degree in Veterinary Medicine. When he emigrated from Albania in 2006 with his family, he began work as a Registered Veterinary Technician. He is currently working towards one day becoming a licensed veterinarian here in the United States.

    Vini is a very skilled dental hygienist, surgical nurse, and is a wonderful addition to our staff. He is also proficient in Italian. 

    Outside of the practice, Vini enjoys spending time with his wife, Marinela, and his sons, Albi and Robert. 

  • Mrs. Lindi-lu Perry

    Lindi-lu was born and raised in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. She attended the University of Tampa in 1979 before transferring to St. Petersburg Junior College to further her education through the Veterinary Technician program. Following her graduation in 1980, she began her career as a Certified Veterinary Technician and became a member of the Marine Mammal Foundation, where she assisted with the beaching of whales, dolphins, and turtles. Mrs. Perry also helped open an emergency clinic, a pet store, and two veterinary practices in St. Petersburg.

    In 1997, she completed a veterinary management course and went on to manage Bay Moorings Animal Hospital, Live Oak Vet Hospital, and The Cat Hospital on Park Street in St. Pete, continuing to work for the same two doctors for over 35 years.

    Lindi-lu joined our team in January 2016 after moving to Lewisville, North Carolina with her husband of 17 years, Scott, to be closer to her family. Together, they have 3 rescue cats named Red, Mama Leah, and Dori-lu-lu. Outside of work, Lindi enjoys exploring the sights of North Carolina, browsing antique malls, and spending time with her family and friends.
