Animal Medical Care Center would like to welcome Dr. Cathy Gallahorn.

Dr.Gallahorn is the medical director and veterinarian at Animal Medical Care Center. She has worked in the veterinary profession for over twenty years, sixteen of those years at North Suffolk Animal Clinic on the southside. She completed her undergraduate studies in Biology at Virginia Tech, and then went on to graduate as a veterinarian from Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine in 2003.

When asked many years ago about why she wanted to be a veterinarian, her answer was “to make people’s lives better through their pets”. This still rings true for her today. She loves being able to positively impact people’s lives by keeping their pets healthy. She lives across the James River in Smithfield with my husband of nineteen years, John, and our two beautiful daughters Riley (14) and Katie (12). They have two pets at home; a cat named Ralphie and a rescued Maltese-Shihtzu mix named Macie. Her passion outside of the work and home are actively serving with the student ministry at Point Harbor Community Church in Chesapeake.

Please feel free to stop by and meet or call her with any questions or concerns.
