Meet Dr. Krakowski

Dr.  Krakowski graduated Magna cum Laude and in honors from Muskingum University in 1974 and was accepted into the College of Veterinary Medicine at The Ohio State University that same year.   While attending Muskingum and Ohio State he worked in a mixed animal practice weekends and summers gaining experience with a large variety of domestic and farm animals. 

Upon graduation from Ohio State in 1978 he was accepted at the largest private practice in North Carolina (Needham Animal Hospital in Wilmington N.C.) to continue training in medicine and surgery under a variety of specialists from one of the only nineteen veterinary schools in the country at the time.  Rotating through the practice on a monthly basis were specialists from Ohio State (Ophthalmology), Auburn (Radiology), Florida (Dermatology), Surgery (Ohio State and The Animal Medical Center of New York City) and Indiana (Neurology).  In addition he was mentored by Dr. Thomas Needham who was the medical and surgical director of the practice as well as the first veterinarian to become proficient in advanced orthopedic and neurological surgical procedures in North Carolina.  At the time of his departure from this position in 1983 he was responsible for the bulk of the referral and in house surgical load including the large number of fractures presented prior to the institution of leash laws, cervical and thoracolumbar disc disease and all forms of soft tissue surgeries.    

Dr. Krakowski has lived in Cary since 1983 and has two children as well as two dogs (Ollie and YoYo).  Although a long time multiple cat owner, currently he has replaced personal ownership with our Little Angels Kitten Adoption program for the time being.  He is a charter member of the Cary Kildaire Rotary Club and a past president of The North Carolina Small Animal Academy of Veterinary Medicine.
