ABOUT

Mission:  To help pet lovers by optimizing spay/neuter care.

Reason for Opening:  For over a decade, Dr. Cobb worked exclusively for shelter spay/neuter clinics.  Though gratifying, suggestions to optimize care were often rejected. High-volume clinics exist to end pet overpopulation.  Affordability is essential.  Clients looking for optimal care had the option of private practice but Dr. Cobb envisioned something even better.

At Ace of Spays, Dr. Cobb’s experience creates affordability but optimal care is the practice focus.  The practice’s unique mission is a game-changer.  Look at a Side-By-Side Comparison to see the differences between high-volume clinics, Ace of Spays clinics, Ace of Spays’ private service and other practice’s private service.

Owner/caretakers, rescues, trappers and breeders know that regardless of “ownership,” Ace of Spays treats every pet on an individual basis, putting optimal comfort and safety above affordability.  Newly hired staff members routinely comment that even in the clinic setting, care is equal to or better than they have seen in private appointments at full-service veterinary practices.

Dr. Lori Cobb

Dr. Cobb spent a decade as a spay/neuter veterinarian for various local animal shelters. She has helped several directors open clinics. She has written grants and she has performed in excess of 30,000 spay/neuter surgeries.  Dr. Cobb formed Ace of Spays in 2005 and has focused on optimizing spay/neuter care ever since.

Dr. Cobb’s second love is alternative medicine. She now sees a full spectrum of conventional and alternative veterinary medicine cases at Ace of Spays/Pathways to Wellness.

Dr. Lauren Simermeyer

Dr. Simermeyer is an emergency and reproductive veterinarian who loves spay/neuter. She has worked at many shelters and even has done overseas spay/neuter missions. When not at work, you will find her with her family of Corgis.

Dr. Leslye D’Ingianni

Dr. D’Ingianni graduated from veterinary school in 2015. She rejoined the Ace of Spays/Pathways to Wellness team in 2020. Years ago she was an integral part of the small Ace of Spays team that traveled South Jersey at various rented facilities.  After obtaining her doctorate, Dr. D’Ingianni pursued her love of spay/neuter at Morris Animal Foundation and then joined a busy full-service practice near the shore. Dr. D’Ingianni shares similar interests to Dr. Cobb. In addition to spay/neuter, she provides conventional and alternative medicine care at the practice.

Kim

Kim is a very caring person whose compassion encompasses people and their pets.  Prior to joining Ace of Spays in 2009, she had years of experience at local practices, shelters and boarding facilities.  Her favorite part of practice is meeting clients and pets.  She has a special gift with small dogs, often shocking owners by befriending their otherwise snippy sidekicks.
