Dr. Nikki Mazzaschi
Dr. Nikki Mazzaschi grew up in Laconia, New Hampshire and received her B.S. in biology and animal behavior at the University of New Hampshire. After graduation, she worked as a veterinary technician for a few years- where she discovered her passion for veterinary medicine. In 2014, Dr. Mazzaschi received her DVM from Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine. Areas of professional interest include internal medicine, animal behavior and all things feline :-)
Dr. Mazzaschi and Dr. Katz established Healthy Pets Veterinary Care with the fundamental goal not only to care for animals, but also the people the love them. Dr. Mazzaschi shares her home with Dr. Katz, an Old English Sheepdog named Max and two handsome cats, Brady and Randy. In her free time, Dr. Mazzaschi and Max volunteer at local libraries helping young children learn to read through the R.E.A.D Program (Reading Education Assistance Dogs). She spends the rest of her free time gardening, sewing and traveling.
Dr. Jay Katz
Dr. Jay Katz is the proud owner of an Old English Sheep Dog named Max as well as Healthy Pets Veterinary Care. Dr. Katz excels at working with dogs and cats – but loves seeing “pocket pets” and other exotics as well. He has a special interest in surgery, dermatology, pain management and senior care.
Dr. Katz received his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Tufts in 2013. Prior to veterinary school, Dr. Katz studied Philosophy, Religion and Art History at Boston University. After college, Dr. Katz’s near‐pathologic desire to pet every dog he sees drove him into veterinary medicine. In his spare time Dr. Katz enjoys traveling, yoga on the beach, basketball, soccer, scuba diving, enjoying the Florida sunshine and no longer having New England winter’s in his life.

Meow! I'm Emily and I REALLY love cats. I love every kind of cat and I just want to hug all of them. I love their little ears, their whiskers, and their nose! I love them in a basket with little bow ties, and I love them on a rainbow with unicorns and sparkles!
Hi, I’m Andres and I’ve been in the Veterinary field since I was 16 years old. I love caring for pets and nursing them back to health. My passion for pets has led me to pursue roles in emergency and surgical care, and now into hospital management. I share my life with two American Bulldogs: Petey and Mr. Bentley. In my free time I enjoy playing hockey, rollerblading with my dogs and enjoying the Florida outdoors.
Hi! My name is Dezirae. I'm a South Florida native with a huge passion for all things furry, including wildlife! I am currently a student at FAU working on my Bachelors degree. I have a slight obsession with reptiles, and have also been known to melt over the puppies and kittens that walk through our door.
Hey there! My name is Gigi, I was born and raised in Italy surrounded by furry creatures in the countryside. I’ve always loved animals and truly appreciate the joy and love they bring to our families. I am currently working on my bachelors degree in biology and hope to one day become a veterinarian. I share my home with 6 meowers, 3 barkers and one 2-legged companion. As you can see, I am extremely in love with animals. I could not see my life without surrounding myself with as many furry creatures as possible. My animals are part of my family and I know that you feel the same way too.P.S.
