Adrien M. Zap, MS, DVM

Dr. Adrien Zap received her undergraduate degree from the University of Connecticut, and went on to receive a Masters degree from the University of Florida before attending veterinary school at St. George's University in Grenada. After three years in Grenada, Dr. Zap returned to the US to complete her clinical training year at the University of Georgia.

After several years in general practice, Dr. Zap felt compelled to provide better, more thorough, personalized care for her patients. This desired inspired her to seek out additional education and training in veterinary acupuncture, food therapy, medical manipulation (chiropractic), herbal medicine, rehabilitation and holistic modalities. With this wealth of knowledge and a desire to provide the best care for all animals, Integrative Veterinary Care was established in 2019.


Being a mobile/ambulatory veterinarian allows Dr. Zap the opportunity to reach more animals in need - from family pets, equine athletes, zoo collections and wildlife around the world. Integrative Veterinary Care is proud to work with local animal rescue groups and wildlife rehabilitation centers to provide veterinary care to all animals in need. Dr. Zap also holds part-time positions at Yonkers Raceway, Belmont Park and Aquaduct Racetrack, working with elite Thoroughbred and Standardbred racehorses.


Dr. Zap returned to her hometown of Ridgefield in 2016, and currently shares her home with a rescued pitbull named Enzo, a tortoise named Mora, a snake named Monty, and several goldfish. Dr. Zap is proud to be a third generation beekeeper, and tends to several hives of honeybees on her property. She enjoys volunteering, traveling, learning foreign languages, Muay Thai (kickboxing), riding horses, playing polo, and practicing yoga.
