Email Dr. Courtney Katsur
Black and yellow proud, Dr. Katsur hails from Pittsburgh, PA. Before becoming a veterinarian, she had a career in private banking. The demands of Wall Street allowed very little time for one of her true loves, animals. Time spent volunteering for Puppies Behind Bars helped set the stage for a major career change. She attained certification in pet grooming, became a Caninology Canine Body Worker and planned for opening a homeopathic spa and rehabilitation center for pets. Later, she realized that becoming a veterinarian was her true calling.
Dr. Katsur attended Boston College for undergraduate studies and the University of Pennsylvania where she earned her Veterinary degree. She has particular expertise in dermatology, chronic allergies, and auto-immune diseases. She also possesses talents in soft tissue surgery, internal medicine, and preventative care. She has worked as a volunteer for the Humane Rescue Alliance of Washington D.C., and for the Pennsylvania Wildlife Rescue League. She is a member of the The American Veterinary Medical Association, (AVMA), and is Six Sigma certified for project and change management.
Dr. Katsur is an avid skier that equally enjoys the beach. She also enjoys international travel, and affectionately recalls time spent in Africa observing animals in their natural habitat. She and her husband are pet parents to two dogs, Dexter and Kylie, who has special needs because of blindness.
