Dr. Karen Hayworth grew up in Burlington, Ontario, Canada, where she started her education, receiving an undergraduate degree from the University of Guelph in Biomedical Sciences. A move south of the border was prompted by her husband, and she obtained her DVM degree from Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana (Go Boilers!). Dr. Hayworth has practiced in Pittsburgh, PA, since graduation and joined VCA Northview Animal Hospital in September 2007. She thoroughly enjoys working with VCA Northview’s extraordinary veterinarians. Her special interests include dentistry, pain management and rehabilitation therapy. On the personal side, Dr. Hayworth and her husband enjoy living in Pittsburgh and have become avid Penguins fans! They have one active son, two calm dogs, one naughty cat, and a couple of fish who behave just like fish should.
