Hope Veterinary Clinic provides comprehensive, client centered treatment to enhance the health and well being of animals and to promote the human-animal bond. We believe in a holistic approach to veterinary medicine using complementary medicine. By this we mean that we address the entirety of the pet’s emotional, physical and environmental needs. We also believe in providing support and education for owners in order that they can care effectively for their pets from the beginning to the end of the pet’s life. Our practice of using complementary medicine means that we utilize both western and eastern treatments according to a patient’s specific needs. Wherever possible, we try to use natural products and supplements to treat conditions (especially chronic conditions), but will also prescribe standard medicines if this is the most appropriate treatment.

Dr. Catherine Wood, DVM

Veterinarian
At age 5, Dr. Catherine Wood read her first James Herriot novel and gave up a promising ballet career to pursue veterinary medicine. She has never looked back. She graduated from Cornell University twice--animal science in 2003 and veterinary medicine in 2007. The robes were definitely more colorful the second time. She completed an internship in wildlife and conservation medicine at Tufts in 2008 and a small animal emergency and critical care internship at a private practice in Annapolis, Maryland, in 2009. She then worked for grassroots animal welfare projects in some of the worlds' least developed countries. She is thrilled to return to the states and to a culture where animals are family. She loves all animals but has particular soft spots for geriatric felines, birds of prey, and turtles.

Kimmy Mazzola

Nursing Staff
Kimmy was born and raised in Brooklyn and currently lives in Crown Heights. She entered Hunter College majoring in Literature and Education. After three years, she changed her career goals and started working at Hope in August of 2004. She worked her way up from kennel staff to one of the head technicians. She adopted Emma, a 13 year-old Abyssinian, from Infinite Hope in 2008 after the cat was brought to the clinic needing very special reconstructive eye surgery. Emma lives with Max, a large 5 year-old cat rescued and adopted by her boyfriend who is a veterinary technician as well. Kimmy also has a black one-eared cat named Salem, and a chocolate chihuahua rescued by the ASPCA named Harley that she visits regularly at her mom's house in Bensonhurst. Taking pictures, wandering through museums, kickboxing, cooking and lounging at home are her favorite leisure activities.
