Kathleen McCadden, DVM, Doctor of Oriental Medicine
Welcome, my name is Dr. Kathleen McCadden.
Prior to joining the VCA Herndon Reston team in May 2012, I was a relief associate veterinarian for various small animal practices in Vermont, Virginia and Maryland. My interests are in chinese veterinary medicine and acupuncture with small and large animals. I have a love for all animals especially our geriatric patients and strive to provide them with a medical enhancement to the wonderful western veterinary medicine that they already receive her at VCA Herndon Reston. My goal is to enhance our patient's quality of life by providing hope, compassion and enhanced medical support to traditional treatments.
If you were to ask me WHY I joined the veterinary profession, I would say "I love to help animals live longer healthier lives and enjoy the smiles it provides to the people that love them!"
A few things that you may not know about me:
I have 3 dogs and 2 cats.
I love the Siberian Husky breed and the hound family.
I love to hike, camp, kayak, swim and photography.
I aspire to travel and explore new places.
I love snow!!!
