Dr. Chris Guisinger
I graduated with high honors from Michigan State University in 2000. I completed my undergraduate degree in Microbiology at the University of Michigan in 1993. My practice interests include soft tissue surgery, ultrasound, endoscopy, dentistry and cardiology. My current pets include two dogs and a cat. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my wife and two sons. I am an avid sports fan and enjoy playing a variety of outdoor sports. I am also an amateur zymergist.
Dr. Mirella Magri
I am a graduate of the Ontario Veterinary College, where I graduated in 1989 with honors. Prior to my veterinary career I studied at the University of Guelph majoring in Animal Science and graduated in 1985 with distinction. Following graduation I spent 5 years in California practicing small animal medicine and surgery. My roots drew me back to Canada and eventually to Michigan. I have spent 16 years in Michigan as a medical director and primary veterinarian for both VCA and Banfield. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my husband Arthur and daughter Vanessa. I also has a cat by the name of Seymour. I’m looking forward to caring for your pet at Richmond Veterinary Hospital.
Rene L., Office Manager
Years in Practice: 13
Education: Bachelor of Science
I am also a graduate of MSU but in the field of Fisheries and Wildlife. Before coming to Richmond Veterinary Hospital in 2009 I spent 7 years with our “big sister” hospital Wilson Veterinary. Outside of work I can be found reading, biking, remodeling my house, and spending time with my 2 dogs, 3 cats, Cockatiel and husband. Yes, we all get along with each other! If you have a question or need something ordered, I’m always happy to help.
Michelle H., Technician
I graduated from Michigan State University with a Bachelor Degree in Veterinary Technology in 2005 but I have been working in the veterinary field for 10 years. My free time is spent taking care of my chickens and changing our house in Allenton. I also enjoy playing ice hockey and spending time with my husband and the cats Tigger, Abby, and Bubba.
Anita C., Receptionist/Assistant
Anita’s love of animals led her to the veterinary field in 1995. She is currently part of our front desk team but loves to help out wherever needed. During her career she has been part of the kennel team and has assisted doctors as well. Working in the veterinary field has been a rewarding experience and she wouldn’t live her life any other way. Anita has a certain affection for Labrador Retrievers. She and her husband have one of their own who fills their lives with much happiness. Anita is one of our most compassionate workers and impresses us with her great memory for faces, names, and dates.

Casanova “Nova”, Clinic Cat
As the hospital cat, it is my duty to play with the friendly pets that come in and be scratched by all clients. I’ve been enjoying my home here at Richmond Veterinary Hospital since 2009 after having a rough start. On a normal work day you’ll see me playing or sleeping in the lobby area (a hard work day). My favorite toy is a stuffed mouse and if you are lucky I will share it with you. Please say hi to me!
