Dr. Curtis Cathcart, DVM, DACVS-SA

Dr. Cathcart is from Edmonton, Alberta in Western Canada. His pre-veterinary education was completed at the University of Alberta. Dr. Cathcart received his veterinary degree from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine (WCVM) at the University of Saskatchewan. Following graduation, he entered general practice and took on ownership of a small animal clinic in Victoria, BC on Vancouver Island. Wanting to pursue his surgical interests he left practice and completed a year-long rotation as a small-animal medical and surgical intern at WCVM, as well as year-long surgical internships at Dallas Veterinary Surgical Center and what is now known as SAGE Veterinary Centers in the San Francisco bay area. He then spent two years doing research as a research associate under Dr. Budsberg at the University of Georgia, studying such things as new analgesic (pain) medications, NSAIDs, compartment syndrome, blood clotting testing, and total knee replacements. He completed a three-year small animal surgical residency right here at Metropolitan Veterinary Hospital. Dr. Cathcart is board certified by the American College of Veterinary Surgeons. After residency he took on an appointment as associate professor at WCVM for 2 years and then started a mobile specialty surgery practice in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. In January 2019 he rejoined Ohio Veterinary Surgery and Neurology, LLC as a surgeon.

Dr. Cathcart has published several articles related to his research work, many of which he has also presented at symposiums. Trained in all areas of small-animal surgery, Dr. Cathcart is available to treat both soft tissue and orthopedic conditions.  He is an active member of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons and Veterinary Orthopedic Society.
