Dr. Catherine Buyrn was inspired to become a Veterinarian or work with animals from a young age. She grew up in Chesapeake Virginia with many dogs and cats of her own and just knew her love for animals and being able to help them was her passion and the right job for her. She attended Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine and graduated in 2022. She had the opportunity to work in mixed-animal veterinary medicine with cows, horses, sheep, goats, and other livestock, in addition to cats and dogs. During this time she shared she had a memorable and challenging case involving a cow and this is when she realized ‘it is those challenging cases that make you realize what you are capable of achieving to help your patients’.
Dr. Buyrn enjoys getting to know her clients and patients and hearing the stories about their lives and bond. She says she is honored to have a role in keeping their loved-ones healthy and helping both the animals and their owners. Dr. Buyrn is a member of the American Association of Feline Practitioners and shares her home with two cats, Jack and Roo. Jack loves to go outside for leash walks twice a day and Roo is a kitten who loves to play and share whatever Dr. Buyrn is eating. And when she is not seeing patients, Dr. Buyrn loves being outside to exercise or hike, and enjoys cooking and reading.
