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, he 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.
