  • Dr. Steve Pullon, DVM

    Dr. Steve Pullon

    Practice Owner
    Dr. Pullon was born in Michigan.  After brief stops in Philadelphia and St. Louis, his family moved to North Palm Beach.  Once he got sand between his toes, there was no going back.  He fell in love with boating and fishing, and spent many days in his 11 foot boat on the intracoastal and Lake Worth.  He attended and graduated from North Shore High School in West Palm Beach, where he met and fell in love with his eventual wife, Debbie.

    After graduation, Dr. Pullon headed off to Auburn University in Alabama on a partial academic scholarship.  After three years, he was accepted to the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine.  Auburn granted him a bachelor's degree in pre-veterinary medicine, one week after he received his doctorate!

    Graduation led to his first job in Boca Raton, followed by a year in Colorado.  In 1996, he purchased Village Veterinary, and has practiced there since.  The practice has since become AAHA certified, and moved into a new, larger facility.

    Dr. Pullon holds veterinary licenses in Florida, Colorado, and Missouri.  He is a member of the following professional associations: Palm Beach Veterinary Society, Treasure Coast Veterinary Medical Association, Florida Veterinary Medical Association, American Veterinary Medical Association, and American Animal Hospital Association.

    Outside of the office, Dr. Pullon enjoys being involved in the community and helping others.  He has been a high school youth leader at Jupiter First Church since 1997, in Kiwanis since 1996, and the Jupiter High School Key Club advisor since 2001.

    Dr. Pullon still enjoys fishing, and takes his two sons out regularly (Alton born 1997, and Noah born 1999).  Debbie is a good sport, and comes along and baits her own hooks.  They were married in 1992 after seven years of dating.  Dr. Pullon's other passion is classic cars.  He has owned and restored multiple American muscle cars. .

    His pets, all homeless at some point, include a hound named Petunia, and a spunky Jack Russell named Piglet.
  • Dr. Meghan Connor

      

    Dr. Connor was born and raised here in Jupiter. Dr. Connor has had a fondness for animals from a young age and has wanted to be a veterinarian since as long as she could remember. She began working in the veterinary field here at Village Veterinary over 15 years ago!

    Dr. Connor is a graduate of Suncoast High School’s International Baccalaureate program. She continued her education at the University of Florida, double majoring in Animal Sciences and Spanish. During her undergraduate studies, Dr. Connor volunteered at UF’s veterinary school and became highly involved in research within the college’s equine reproduction service. This led her to pursue a Master of Science degree at the College of Veterinary Medicine studying equine seminal plasma proteins and their potential effect on fertility in horses.

    Dr. Connor attended veterinary school at the University of Florida. While in veterinary school, Dr. Connor remained active in equine reproduction research. Dr. Connor took courses in both small animal and equine medicine and enrolled in clinical rotations aimed at treatment of both small and large animals.

    Following graduation from veterinary school in 2014, Dr. Connor has worked in Kentucky, Ocala and Palm City.

    Dr. Connor and her husband Damian met in Gainesville while studying at the University of Florida. They are thrilled to be back in Dr. Connor’s hometown of Jupiter and love going to the beach, kayaking and snorkeling. They have a former Village Veterinary adoption kitten named George and an older lab mix, Lilly. 

  • Dr Karina Salvo


    Dr. Karina Salvo began her journey within the animal field at the age of 12 by working as a volunteer at a local small animal practice. She continued for the following 16years as a veterinary nurse thru her undergraduate training until it was time to apply for veterinary school. She graduated with a dual major in Biology and Chemistry at University of South Florida, masters in BioMedical Science and finally a Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from Ross University. She completed a medical and surgical internship at New York City Veterinary Specialists in 2007, worked as a Medical Director of Medical and Emergency Services for one of the largest privately owned veterinary practices in New York City. In 2012 both of her practices were destroyed by Superstorm Sandy which brought her home to Palm Beach County where her journey originally began. 

    Dr. Salvo has a variety of different skill sets including being a level 3 Fear Free Certified Veterinarian; Fear Free has become one of the single most transformative initiatives in the history of companion animal practice, providing unparalleled education on emotional wellbeing, enrichment, and the reduction of fear, anxiety, and stress in pets. 

    Along with practicing traditional Veterinary medicine, Dr. Salvo is also certified in Chiropractic, Cranio-Sacral Therapy as well as trained in Acupuncture, Herbal Therapy, Food Therapy, Tui-na and Palliative & End of Life Care. 

    Dr. Salvo enjoys having her clients be a part of the exam experience as much as possible. Being Fear Free Certified allows for the owner to be an integral part of the overall exam experience. Most animals are examined on the floor where they are most comfortable and allowed to walk freely around the exam room. Food treats approved by the owner ( or brought in by the owner are encouraged) so as to limit the amount of restraint used during an exam. This promotes for a most positive veterinary visit experience. 
    She feels that the more involved and better informed owner has most advantage in being a valuable part of their pets health and wellbeing.

     During her downtime she enjoys snorkeling, paddle boarding, going to the gym, gardening or anything outdoors and of course spending time with her significant other and all of their dogs ; 5 Bull Mastiffs , 5 Dogo Argentinos and a yorkie
