Dr. Monica Lachowsky is originally from Kansas, but had her sights set on life in Chicago after visiting with a friend. Doctor Lachowsky holds a Bachelor of Science in Animal Science and Industry and a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine both from Kansas State University. She joined Care Animal Hospital in July 2018, and has been practicing in the Chicagoland area since the memorable Blizzard of 2011.
Her special interests include parasitology, feline medicine, preventive medicine, and dentistry. She is proud to be the Medical Director for a small, growing Chicago-based cat rescue.
When not at work, Dr Lachowsky enjoys spending time with her husband, Tim, and their two cats, Kiwi and Wednesday. Other interests include swimming, bicycling, and beaches. She regularly gets together with friends for Dungeons and Dragons, and always looks forward to the Bristol Renaissance Festival.
