Dr. Corisa Cheston grew up in a small town about 20 minutes outside of Dallas, TX. As a little girl, Dr. Cheston always loved animals and dreamed of owning lots of pets. She and her best friend talked about becoming veterinarians when they grew up and in 2012, she completed her undergraduate studies at North Carolina State University and graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelors in Zoology. At that time, she thought her path was going to be in zoo animal medicine, however, after taking a few years off and working as a veterinary assistant she decided she wanted to pursue large animal medicine in rural parts of NC. When Dr. Cheston graduated from NC State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine in 2019 that’s exactly what she did. Dr. Cheston worked as a large animal veterinarian for 2 1/2 years with some amazing doctors and staff.

Dr. Cheston’s love of small animals’ and her keen interest in internal medicine and providing palliative care for those older pets at home led her to Dogwood Veterinary Hospital & Pet Resort. Dr. Cheston spends most of her free time at home on her farm with her husband, two kids, and their chocolate lab, Brody. She would love to have more animals at home and is planning to get ducks soon!
