Meet Our Doctors!

We are proud to introduce the team of exceptional veterinarians at Bull’s Head Pet Hospital! Each of our doctors is committed to providing the best care possible for your pets.

Dr. Steven Zeide


A Stamford resident and owner of Bull’s Head Pet Hospital since 1975, his primary veterinary interests are in internal and preventive medicine, ophthalmology and pain management. Although he graduated from the Purdue University School of Veterinary Medicine in prehistoric times, majoring in dinosaurs, he continually updates his education, attending countless lectures and seminars.

Whether it’s participating in pet-facilitated therapy at human hospitals and nursing homes or visiting schoolchildren on career days, he loves to share his passion for animals with Fairfield County‘s young and young at heart. It’s doubly rewarding when the students come to Bull’s Head Pet Hospital to discover more. The learning tree has even branched out to his two sons from a more than 40-year marriage. One, a colleague, Dr. Nolan Zeide, and the other, an attorney with his MBA, who frequently consults for the practice.

Born and bred in Brooklyn, N.Y., “Dr. Steve” learned to be fiercely loyal to family, community, and work. When not working, he is usually working out. His highest life priority is his wife Dorothy, his one and only childhood sweetheart. What would a veterinarian be without pets of his own? Dog Sedona, a mixed breed rescue, Zoa, a beautiful long-haired cat, also a rescue, and BKLYN, a miniature Bull Terrier, presently rule the roost.

Dr. Nolan Zeide


Nolan Zeide, sometimes referred to as “Dr. Nolan,” was born and raised in Stamford, Connecticut. As a product of its school system, he is a graduate of Westhill High School. As the son of Dr. Steven Zeide, he has been surrounded by animals and veterinary medicine his entire life. As a matter of fact, as a child his favorite after-school activity was cleaning cages and helping the kennel staff.

His curiosity for science and general inquisitiveness ultimately led him to earn a degree in Veterinary Medicine from Purdue University in 2009 and was presented the American Animal Hospital Association’s award of “Distinction in Small Animal Medicine and Surgery.” Upon graduation, he advanced his training for another year as a rotating Intern in Medicine and Surgery at the Animal Medical Center in Manhattan. His current interests in veterinary medicine include internal medicine, nutrition, behavioral issues and soft-tissue surgery.

Although he has had the opportunity to have lived and traveled extensively inside and outside the United States, he is pleased to once again reside in Stamford, with his wife, Leah, a Greenwich elementary school teacher, their daughters, Aviva, Elora and Iyla, a rescue Catahoula Leopard Dog, Vader, and his newest family member, an American Pitbull Terrier, named “Denver.” Si`, he is fluent in Spanish.

Dr. Jessica Greenberg


Dr. Jessica Greenberg, BVMS, MRCVS, grew up in upstate New York and went to Massachusetts for college where she majored in Biology and Classical Studies. She then attended the University of Glasgow School of Veterinary Medicine where she loved every slightly rainy Scottish minute. Jessica graduated with distinction and is a member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons. Jessica returned to the United States in 2010 and has been practicing in the New York and Connecticut area since. She loves helping pets and their families, with special interests in pain management, internal medicine, fear free medicine, the human animal bond, and hospice care. She lives in Stamford with her husband, Adam, and their children Shifra, Gila, and Matan, and their 2 cats Arthur Pendragon and Bramley.
