Mermaid Vet Hospital Team
We’re pleased to provide exceptional vet care for your pets!
Dr. Peter Mosites
Dr. Mosites (sounds like “bronchitis”) received his DVM from Ross University in 2015, after completing his clinical year at the University of Minnesota.
He practiced for several years as an ER veterinarian in San Antonio, TX before moving to Florida to open his own relief practice Lone Wolf Veterinary Services, LLC.
He enjoys traveling, spending time with his wife Dr. Reina Hagstrom and their dogs. He also enjoys reading comic books, building LEGO, the Minnesota Vikings and telling himself that someday, he’ll take up surfing.
In addition to his work with Mermaid Vet Hospital, Dr. Mosites continues to practice as a relief veterinarian and serves as a Captain in the Army Reserve Veterinary Corps.
Dr. Reina Hagstrom
She was born and raised in Tokyo, Japan, and moved to Idaho to complete her undergraduate degree.
Together with Dr. Mosites, she practiced several years as an ER veterinarian in San Antonio, TX before moving down to Florida.
Although not common among veterinarians, she is especially passionate about pet dental procedures and someday plans on opening a Mermaid dental clinic.
She enjoys traveling, spending time with the family, keeping up with Orange theory, and of course, transforming into a mermaid in the water!
Dr. Vivian Braun
Before going into the Veterinary field, Dr. Braun spent time doing field research with dolphins as well as being an intern zookeeper for birds and reptiles.
Dr. Braun enjoys photography and can be seen taking pictures of birds and scenery on any given day. She is still learning how to properly use the camera settings. On her days off, Dr. Braun can usually be found reading, drinking tea, catching up on TV shows, attempting to help Link defeat Ganondorf, or wandering the beach.
She has yet to master jumping in any video game.
Tiffany also takes a special interest in surgery, especially when it means correcting a problem that prolongs our 4 legged family members lives.
Outside of work, Tiffany enjoys spending time outdoors with her family. Together, they go four-wheeling, boating, camping, and host events with their land conservation chapter of NWTF (National Wildlife Turkey Federation).
She first realized she wanted a career in the veterinary field when she was 2 years old.
Sara has a passion for surgery, especially dental work. She loves that there is always more to learn and she strives to learn something new every day.
When Sara is not working she is either playing video games or spending time with family and friends.
She has a dog, a cat, 4 leopard geckos, a blue tongue skink, a California kingsnake, multiple fish tanks (both fresh and saltwater), and 2 axolotls.
Cristian De Peralta
Cristian has been in the veterinary industry for 8 years as a Veterinary assistant and receptionist. He enjoys interacting with clients and loving on their furbabies.
He was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois and moved to Vero Beach, FL in February of 2022.
Cristian enjoys playing chess and anything that requires critical thinking. On his off days, he likes to spend time with friends, family, and plays video games.
He currently does not own any pets, but hopes to change that in the near future
