Homegrown in Indiana, Dr. Katie Wentworth originates from Bloomington, where her parents both taught at Indiana University. Her undergraduate years were mostly spent in sunny Miami, FL, though she did attend IU for her senior year. After a year of working as a marine mammal trainer, Dr. Wentworth started veterinary school, officially tarnishing the long family history of cream and crimson, by attending Purdue CVM and graduating in 2008. Since graduation, Dr. Wentworth has worked in private practice with exotics/pocket pets as a focus as well as small animal preventative care. A love of emergent care for small animals developed and she has been pursuing this interest ever since, working in the ER setting for approximately one year.

In her spare time, Dr. Wentworth enjoys hanging out at the local dog park, honing her surgery skills by taking scalpel blade to paper to create silhouettes and greeting cards, as well as taking advantage of the myriad of activities available to her thanks to living downtown in Indianapolis. Dr. Wentworth is extremely excited to join the VCA AVCC team and looks forward to the chance to work alongside all of you!

What Is An Emergency and Critical Care Specialist?

A board certified specialist in emergency and critical care is a veterinarian who has obtained intensive, additional training in treating life-threatening conditions.

An emergency and critical care specialist can help in the following kinds of cases, among others:

  • Traumatic injury (including fractures, bite wounds, burns, lacerations)
  • Respiratory emergencies (including cases in which the use of ventilators is needed) Animals in need of blood transfusions Animals that are in shock
  • Animals with life threatening neurologic disease, such as coma or severe seizures

While your general practitioner veterinarian can diagnose and treat many health problems and handle many routine emergencies, certain situations may require the care of a doctor who has had specialized, intensive training in handling emergency and critical care for your pet. An emergency and critical care specialist typically works in tandem with your general practitioner veterinarian on a referral basis, as well as with any other needed specialists, until the emergency is resolved.

How Can I Find A Specialist in Emergency and Critical Care for My Pet?
