Learn More About the People Behind Keysville Mobile Veterinary Services
Keysville Mobile Veterinary Services is owned and operated by Carolyn Cornett, DVM, an experienced and compassionate veterinarian dedicated to enhancing the relationship between pets and their owners.
Carolyn Cornett, DVM
Practice Owner, Lead Veterinarian
Dr. Carolyn Cornett received a bachelor’s of science degree in biological sciences from Stanford University, where she graduated with honors. She earned her doctorate in veterinary medicine from the University of California at Davis, and completed a small animal medicine and surgery internship at Oradell Animal Hospital in Oradell, New Jersey.
Although Dr. Cornett has achieved top honors in academics and clinical training, her greatest joys in her more than 20-year veterinary career have been getting to know unique individuals—both two- and four-legged—and supporting the relationships between pets and owners. One of her proudest career accomplishments happened while doing volunteer work with the Office of Emergency Management in Bergen County, New Jersey. She developed the first emergency evacuation/preparedness plan to include animals in the state of New Jersey.
Dr. Cornett is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, the Maryland Veterinary Medical Association (MVMA), the Western Maryland Veterinary Medical Association (WMVMA), and the American Animal Hospital Association. Starting in June 2017 she is the representative for WMVMA to the MDVMA, which oversees legislative actions involving animal issues and the veterinary committee as a whole.
When Dr. Cornett is not taking care of your lovable companions, she is enjoying her family and her own dog and three cats.
Leigh Pusateri, DVM
Dr. Leigh Pusateri joins KMVS with over 20 years of small animal clinical experience. She obtained her veterinary medical degree from The Ohio State University in 1994, was proclaimed the Outstanding Small Animal Intern at the North Carolina State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital in 1995, and practiced small animal emergency medicine at the Anne Arundel Veterinary Emergency Clinic until October of 2000.

“We would highly recommend KMVS to anyone looking for outstanding care for their pet(s).”
“Rufus, Lulu, and Natasha think it's great that they no longer have to fight to get in a carrier to go to the vets. Dr. Cornett and Jen come to them for monthly nail trim and their annual check ups. "Mom" especially thinks it's great!”
— Nancy Norris
“I became acquainted with Keysville Mobile Veterinary Services and Dr. Carolyn Cornett about two years ago when I responded to an advertisement. I was delighted to learn that she routinely made "house calls". I found Dr. Cornett to be very professional knowledgeable and reasonably priced.”
“When my 12-year old dog "Tassie" had a stroke last year after normal business hours, Dr. Cornett responded immediately dispensing multiple injections, took blood samples and started an IV. She returned late that evening, initiated another IV treatment and counseled me on my various options allowing me to select my preferred choice. It was obvious to see that Dr. Cornett was sensitive and lovingly cared for Tassie and I am honored to share my unqualified endorsement. On Tassie's recent birthday, Dr. Cornett showed up to deliver a birthday gift for Tassie - a new toy!”
— Richard French
“My prayers were answered the day my Shadow had her first appointment with Dr. Carolyn Cornett.
While numerous other veterinarians could not tell me what was wrong with Shadow, Dr. Cornett got Shadow's diagnosis of Addison's Disease correctly on the first visit. The other veterinarians did not even think of testing Shadow for this medical condition. I can only speak in superlatives when talking about Dr Cornett. She is the best, most caring, most skillful and most accommodating veterinarian to which I have ever taken a pet! Dr. Cornett provides the highest quality care in the most compassionate matter to both the pet and the owner. Thorough exams and taking time to explain each and every possible treatment option is Dr. Cornett's normal style of practicing medicine. This past fall I moved out of Carroll County to another state. I know one of the greatest losses for both my pets and myself is the lost of Dr. Carolyn Cornett as our veterinarian. There is no way I will never find a Vet as wonderful and knowledgeable as Dr. Carolyn Cornett. Carroll County is extremely lucky to have her.”
