Dr. Geri Katz
Dr. Geri Katz is a 1996 graduate of the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Veterinary Medicine. She has practiced as a small animal veterinarian for over fifteen years, but has a particular fondness for felines. “Cats are such a unique species. They have complex social dynamics and an evolutionary physiology which makes them very different from being smaller versions of any other species. They are brave and subtle and can be very puzzling at times.” Dr. Katz feels that a significant number of feline medical illnesses can be explained by nutritional imbalances and uses a natural approach whenever possible.
As an active member of the American Association of Feline Practitioners, the American Veterinary Medical Association, and regional veterinary associations, Dr. Katz is continually learning from veterinary specialists regarding various health issues that affect cats. “What fulfills me most as a veterinarian,” Dr Katz says, “is building trusting relationships with pet owners, and ensuring that my patients live long, healthy, and comfortable lives.”
In Dr. Katz’s free time she enjoys spending quality time with her husband and two children in Fairfield, Connecticut. She also loves to spoil her kitties – Jimmy, Meep, and Jeorge.
