Animal Medical Center of Watkins Park

60 Watkins Park Drive
Upper Marlboro, MD 20774


Dr. Susan Maturo has been practicing veterinary medicine for more than two decades. Upon graduating from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine in 1988, she worked as an associate veterinarian in her home state of Connecticut.  She then worked in several small animal practices in Maryland before establishing the Animal Medical Center of Watkins Park in 1992.

Treating dogs, cats, ferrets, and small mammals, Dr. Maturo has particular interests in preventative medicine, nutrition, geriatric (senior) patients, dentistry, and soft tissue surgery. She believes in treating the patient as a whole and follows a rational approach to vaccination to promote optimal pet health.

Dr. Maturo is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, Maryland Veterinary Medical Association, and the Veterinary Dental Society.


Dr. Sara Chapman graduated from Ohio State University in 1985. After a few years in conventional practice, she noticed that pets with chronic problems often didn't get any better. She began studying holistic treatment methods, and tailoring her treatment to the individual patient, using nutrition, reduced vaccination and fewer drugs whenever possible.

In 1995, she became interested in homeopathy after her own chronically lame horse responded dramatically to it. She has studied veterinary homeopathy, veterinary acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine both in England and the United States. Dr. Chapman is a member of the Academy of Veterinary Homeopathy, the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association, the American Veterinary Medical Association, and the National Center for Homeopathy. She is also a member of the British Association of Homeopathic Veterinary Surgeons, the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (UK), the Faculty of Homeopathy (UK), and the International Association for Veterinary Homeopathy.
