Katarina Bennett, DVM, DABVP (Exotic Companion Mammal)

Avian & Exotic Medicine

Board Certified in Exotic Companion Mammal Practice

On The Job

Dr. Katarina Bennett always wanted to be a veterinarian, and her internship experiences at zoos and aviaries prior to veterinary school led to her fascination with exotic animals. Some of her favorite patients are the rabbits and guinea pigs with dental malocclusion who require lifelong treatment, and she admires the dedication shown by their owners. Dr. Bennett enjoys surgery and working with owners on husbandry issues because they are one of the most prevalent causes of disease in exotic animals.
