Dr. Peter Belinsky attended the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine and graduated with Drs. William Condon and Kenneth Rix. In 2005, he joined our staff after practicing in Providence for 35 years with his father. Dr. Belinisky is also the Assistant Public Health Veterinarian in Rhode Island, a position he has held for several years.
When not working at Sakonnet Veterinary Hospital, Dr. Belinsky is responsible for the health of animals coming in and out of the state — monitoring infectious diseases and overseeing animal shelters, pet stores, and kennels. He enjoys the diversity of his work, knowing he is making a contribution to animal health at both the state level and one-on-one.
A long-time resident of Edgewood, Dr. Belinsky is an avid reader and collector of books, especially those focused on art and the Revolutionary War. He is currently spearheading an initiative to identify and share information on offenders involved in animal abuse, child abuse, and interpersonal violence.
