Our goal at Cat Specialist is to offer the very best in veterinary care to our patients by combining cutting edge knowledge with compassionate communication and options. We foster continuing education for our veterinarians, our technicians, and our receptionists. When you speak with our staff you will feel our passion for taking care of kitties! The father-daughter duo have been collaborating for 30+ years, as Dr. Lavallee worked alongside her dad her entire childhood. Most recently, they co-wrote a chapter in the textbook Laser Therapy in Veterinary Medicine: Photobiomodulation about the use of therapy laser in cats. Dr. Lavallee seems to have inherited her father’s passion for learning, writing, and building life-long relationships with clients. Dr. Lavallee has lectured at a national veterinary conference alongside world renowned feline veterinary specialist, Dr. Gary Norsworthy, on the topics of cat small bowel disease and vomiting, hyperthyroidism, diabetes, pancreatitis, and pearls from feline practice. Most recently, Dr. Lavallee wrote 16 chapters in the textbook The Feline Patient, 5th edition. We have recently welcomed Dr. Andrea Zikovitz to our team! Dr. Zikovitz is internship trained with years of experience as an emergency doctor. She has mastered the art of managing sick cats and this is inspired her to work on the preventative medicine side of things as well!
