Karuna Katariwala, DVM

Rotating Veterinarian

I was born and raised in New Jersey and wanted to be a veterinarian from a young age. I have spent the past 8 years in Upstate New York where I dedicated a large portion of my time towards diversity, equity and inclusion efforts both within my college and in the local community. I hope to continue these efforts throughout my career as a veterinarian. In my spare time, I enjoy baking, reading, hiking and curling!

Friendship cultivates an environment that is supportive, and collaborative. They provide high quality medicine that to all the pets that walk through the door and are compassionate and caring to owners. I look forward to learning from the amazing staff at the hospital and to grow as a veterinarian.
