On Air with Heather Loenser

Dr. Heather Loenser (’03)
Reality TV seemed to be in Heather Loenser’s future. But when the network decided not to go forward with the show, Loenser’s career as an emergency vet in New Jersey took a dramatic turn. Her audition tape came to the attention of a television producer and soon Loenser was appearing as an expert guest on shows such as “Fox and Friends,” “The Today Show” and “Regis and Kelly.” Her go-to segment – how your pet can be injured around a holiday. “Name a holiday and I can tell you the dangers to pets of those holidays,” Loenser said, tongue in check. “We did Christmas – tinsel; Valentine’s Day – dark chocolate; St. Patrick’s Day – raisins in Irish Soda Bread!”
