I have always loved animals, but it was only when I met my own pet on an appointment with a vet that I decided to make a career out of it. I started working as a receptionist in an emergency room in Baltimore, then went to school and became a veterinarian. After working in emergency, specialist and general hospitals as a technician and with a steadily growing passion for veterinary medicine, I graduated with a bachelor's degree in veterinary medicine in 2010 and decided to apply for the Veterinary College in 2011.
I then earned my PhD in veterinary medicine from the University of Maryland Medical School in Baltimore in 2002 and my master's degree from Johns Hopkins University in 2009.
My interests are bird and exotic medicine, and I am a member of the board of the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA). I received my bachelor's degree in veterinary medicine from the University of Maryland Medical School in Baltimore and am an associate professor in the Department of Veterinary Medicine at Johns Hopkins University. My interest is in birds, birds of prey, amphibians, mammals, reptiles and amphibians, and birds.
My high need has occupied me for the past 20 years as a physician under the late Dr. Don Zantop at the University of Maryland Veterinary Medical Center in Annapolis, Maryland, and at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore.
I spent some time in high school, working with horses and helping at a local veterinary clinic. I have a degree in veterinary medicine from the University of Maryland Veterinary Center in Annapolis, Maryland.
After certification as an acupuncturist, I began to work holistically in the holistic veterinary care in Bethesda, MD. After seven years as a vet, I visited the Chi Institute in Florida and was attracted to animal care. Dr. Raichura has dedicated her life to the loving and compassionate care and healing of cats, dogs, rabbits and other critters.
Dr. Cujdik spent the next 23 years as a veterinarian in Annapolis, Maryland, with an emphasis on caring for cats, dogs, rabbits and other animals. Dr. Pondish graduated from Cornell University with a bachelor's degree in veterinary medicine and a master's degree in veterinary surgery. He completed surgical training at the University of Maryland Veterinary Medical Center in Baltimore, MD, with alternating appointments at St. Mary's Veterinary Hospital. Jesse earned his Bachelor of Science in Veterinary Medicine from Johns Hopkins University before completing his Master of Veterinary Medicine and Veterinary Medicine from Columbia University.
He began his early career at the University of Maryland Veterinary Medical Center in Baltimore, MD, graduated in 1992 and returned to Baltimore, where his career as a veterinarian flourished. Since then, Dr. Fallon has provided veterinary and surgical services at St. Mary's Veterinary Hospital in Annapolis, Maryland, as well as other veterinary clinics in Maryland and Virginia.
He was a popular vet on the show stage and has several best-in-show wins. He is known for his commitment to excellence in his work and for what it takes to get there, whether in the field of veterinary medicine, veterinary surgery or veterinary training.
When Dr. Cujdik is not talking about veterinary medicine, he can be seen gardening in his 5-acre Greenspring Valley home, doing numerous DIY projects, taking time off from Dewey Beach and spending time with his wife Jennifer and their three children. He lives in a two-bedroom, one-bathroom house in Annapolis, Maryland, but shares the house with three dogs, Millie, Murphy and Asher, who were rescued by the Baltimore County Humane Society and Baltimore City Animal Care and Control, respectively.
At Stony Brook Medicine, our goal is to exceed expectations by providing the best medical care available. We are proud to work closely with our pets to provide the full range of clinical services and we are proud to be able to treat and implement preventive measures to keep them healthy and happy. This is particularly true for Highway Veterinary Hospital, where maintaining the bond and providing excellent pet health services are a high priority.
After decades in general practice, I realized that one of the most important things a vet has to do is help owners toward the end of their pet's life. Every day I am reminded that the bond people have with the animals they care for deserves respect and leads me to make sure that I give people and their pets the care I want for my own crew. BJ loves to talk to customers and greet their pets, and we are proud to be a quality pet shelter where pets visit us.
