Central Animal Hospital, serving the Westchester, White Plains, and surrounding communities, announced that the practice welcomed a new veterinarian to the team. Jason Siegelheim, DVM, has joined the veterinary hospital to further expand the hospital's exotic pet services.
"We are very excited to welcome Dr. Siegelheim to our team," said Dr. Michael Woltz. Dr. Woltz has served as the veterinary hospital's director since 1981. "We are passionate about providing high quality,
proactive wellness care for all of our client's pets. Dr. Siegelheim is a great addition to our team."
While studying at the University of Florida, Dr. Siegelheim received extensive training in the latest veterinary care technology. He completed numerous internships and trained at Mid-Island Animal Hospital on Long Island and Animal Medical Center in NYC.
Dr. Siegelheim's professional interests include exotic animals and pocket pets, dermatology, radiology, neurology, and small animal medicine and surgery.
"Exotic veterinarians must be familiar with a wide range of exotic animals and their unique needs," said Dr. Woltz. "Dr. Siegelheim has clearly demonstrated this breadth of knowledge. He will be an important addition to our exotic vet care team."
Dr. Woltz also emphasized the importance of specialized veterinary care for pocket pets.
"Since pocket pets have shorter life expectancies and are more fragile, routine wellness care is essential in keeping them healthy," said Dr.Woltz. "Exotic pets require specialty care because of their unique habitat and nutrition needs. Fortunately, Dr. Siegelheim is well-versed in these unique needs."
Dr. Siegelheim will be the seventh veterinarian serving the Scarsdale,
Westchester and White Plains communities from Central Animal Hospital.
Last fall, veterinarian Dr. Donatella Hecht joined the vet care team
contributing a wealth of knowledge and experience from surrounding
referral veterinary practices.
"With each new addition to our vet care team, we grow stronger and
reaffirm our commitment to high quality veterinary care," said Dr.
Woltz. "We are proud to have been voted among the best veterinarians in
Westchester County in 2011and 2012. We will continue to provide
state-of-the-art wellness care, surgical care and urgent care."
The veterinary clinic provides comprehensive wellness services,
including spay/neuter procedures, dental care, pet vaccinations, and
pet surgery, as well as surgical and urgent care services.
