OUR VETERINARIANS

Jennifer L. Saver, DVM

Erica Campbell, DVM

Dr. Jennifer Saver graduated from Michigan State University in 1994.  She was in private practice until 1999 when she left to do emergency medicine.  In November 2000 she opened Catnip and Carrots in order to specialize in cats, rabbits, and other small mammals.
Dr. Saver felt it was extremely important to provide a quiet, low stress environment that would cater to the natures of both cats and rabbits.  In order to expand, Catnip and Carrots moved to its present location on Jericho Turnpike in September 2013.

Dr. Laura George joined Catnip & Carrots as an associate veterinarian in 2003. She graduated from Ross University and is currently pursuing certification in veterinary acupuncture at the Chi Institute. Dr. George has been a rabbit advocate and House Rabbit Society Educator for 25 years. She has a special interest in rabbit and feline medicine and is dedicated to raising awareness about humane issues for all animals.
