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. Kristine Young, DVM

Veterinarian, Medical Director
At age 3 Dr. Young decided to be a doctor, but was sidetracked into a successful design career, before eventually returning to her first love, animals. After graduating from Michigan State University, Dr. Young happily returned to her hometown of New York City to practice veterinary medicine. While working as an associate in Brooklyn, Dr. Young began making pro-bono house calls to some of Juliet’s clients which ultimately led to the formation of Hope Vet. Dr. Young is a member of the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association. The cats, dog, turtles and fish who share her home are a major joy and influence for her practice. When not at Hope Vet, she enjoys gardening, bicycling and house restoration. Her beliefs in animal ethics and welfare led to her becoming a vegan.

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.
