Dr. Ann Herschl Cirillo

Dr. Ann Cirillo (formerly Herschl) graduated from the University of Georgia, College of Veterinary Medicine in 1990. After a one-year anesthesiology internship, she practiced both equine and small animal medicine. In 1992, Dr. Ann decided to focus exclusively on small animal practice. While she enjoys all aspects of veterinary medicine, she has a special interest in companion animal dentistry. Always striving for growth, she takes advantage of continuing education opportunities to bring advanced veterinary medicine back home to her patients.

In addition to Seven Fields Veterinary Hospital, Dr. Ann and husband John own and operate Avalon Veterinary Hospital (Avalon, PA) and Big Rock Veterinary Hospital (New Brighton, PA).

Dr. Ann knew she wanted to become a veterinarian at a very young age and followed her dream to reality. She considers herself blessed to be able to do what she loves, and not only take care of the animal patients, but their owners as well. She attends many community activities including events sponsored by the Susan G. Komen foundation, Western Pennsylvania Humane Society, Animal Friends, Butler County Humane Society, Hello Bully, community days and home shows. She also has a passion for mentoring teenagers and young adults who desire to become veterinarians someday.

In their spare time, the Cirillos enjoy playtime adventures with their young granddaughter, Payten.  John and Dr. Ann have four grown children that have followed their own dreams:

  • Samantha (Payten’s mommy) obtained her Master of Social Work from the University of Pittsburgh, and applies her degree as a drug and alcohol counselor.
  • Emily also graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a Major in Environmental Science and a Minor in Japanese.  She lives in NC with her husband Kai.
  • Alexandra graduated from Slippery Rock University and is working in marketing in Warrendale, PA. 
  • Their youngest, Michael is currently loving California as he pursues his PhD in Bioengineering at UCSF/UC Berkley.

​Dr. Ann also enjoys showing Brody, her mini Labradoodle, in obedience and agility trials. His sister is getting ready to start competing too. Other beloved pets include Oscar the Biewer Terrier, and two cats: Peanut, and Rengi, who is happy and healthy after Dr. Ann performed his lifesaving heart surgery. See the YouTube video of Rengi’s story here!
