After his undergraduate studies at the University of Idaho and University of Nevada, Reno, Dr. Tony Luchetti received his DVM from Colorado State University in 2000. Dr. Luchetti’s veterinary career path has been quite diverse. Immediately after receiving his DVM, he practiced for five years in a mixed animal practice in rural Nevada. His career then led him to work in a sixteen veterinarian, AAHA accredited, small animal exclusive practice for fifteen years in the Reno area.

For a portion of this time, he served as Surgical Director and was a partner for seven years, with the practice eventually transitioning to corporate. Since 2007, Dr. Luchetti has been a shareholder at a local 24/7 emergency practice, as well as serving on the board for a portion of this time. During this period, the practice transitioned to a 24/7 specialty referral hospital.

Along with being a Medical Team Coach for Blue Heron Consulting, Dr. Luchetti keeps his clinical skills sharp by performing relief work at his prior practice and the emergency hospital. In addition to his clinical experience, he has served as both a board member and an officer in the Nevada VMA, culminating as president of the Nevada VMA in 2015.

Through his love of the profession and diverse career path, he looks forward to offering a unique perspective to practice owners and managers, in addition to the rest of the Blue Heron Team.

Dr. Luchetti is married to Jennifer, his bride of over twenty years. Together they have two teenage boys who keep them busy along with their young German Shorthair Pointer. In his free time, Dr. Luchetti enjoys spending time outdoors, whether that is camping, snow or water skiing, or dirt bike riding.
