Meet the Pain and Palliative Care Team


Certified in Veterinary Medical Acupuncture

Dr. Moses leads the Pain and Palliative Care Service at Angell. Dr. Moses is board certified in internal medicine and was a senior clinician in Angell’s Emergency and Critical Care service for 12 years. She has received advanced training in both human and veterinary pain medicine. This combination of training and experience enables Dr. Moses to manage complex cases requiring simultaneous treatment of multiple medical problems. As a result of the training, the Pain and Palliative Care Service is modeled after pain clinics created at human hospitals. Dr. Moses has also been trained and certified in veterinary medical acupuncture. She is an elected member of the International Veterinary Academy of Pain Management Board of Directors and lectures at many national conferences.

In addition to her clinical work, she is a bioethicist conducting research on veterinary ethics. Dr. Moses has over 15 years experience in Angell’s Emergency/Critical Care and Anesthesia departments and was one of the original members of Angell’s ECC team.

Under her direction, the Pain and Palliative Care Service provides advanced assessment of both chronic and acute pain and manages treatments accordingly. This includes multiple types of drug therapy, nerve blocks and other forms of local anesthesia for surgical and cancer pain, acupuncture and trigger point therapy and recommendations for physical therapy and lifestyle changes.

Dee Schick-Fuller, CVT, Pain and Palliative Care Technician

Dee’s career in the veterinary world began in general practice, where pain management stood out to her as a mainstay to veterinary treatments and care. Dee decided to move from general practice to the Pain and Palliative Care Service in order to direct her full attention toward the well-being and quality of life of animals. She is interested in advancing her understanding of the pathophysiology of pain to help ensure that patients are receiving the best possible care. She is passionate about developing compassionate and realistic standards of care for animals, through health and illness. Dee prides herself in providing excellent service to families as they navigate the complex lives of their pets. Prior to her life in veterinary medicine she studied journalism and archaeology at Boston University. She later attended Penn Foster College for a degree in Veterinary Technology and earned her licensure as a Certified Veterinary Technician. Dee has two cats, Leyla and Patrick Connor, and a corn snake named Apep.
