    Kaeley Blum-Silsdorf

    Hello! My name is Kaeley. I have been with VCA since June of 2010 and absolutely love it! It’s great to be part of such a caring and professional team.

    I have worked with animals my entire life. Riding horses competitively was my passion until about 22 yrs of age. Since then I have been working as a Veterinary Technician and a manager in many capacities. I had the privilege of managing one of the largest humane societies in the country as well as directing their medical program. During this time I also pursued an externship in Animal Behavior and began freelancing as a consultant for shelters on issues pertaining to management and behavior evaluations.

    I Live in NY State with My husband and 2 beautiful daughters. We have a standard poodle, a giant schnauzer and 4 cats.
    In my free time I enjoy Surfcasting, Horseback riding and spending summers on Fire Island.

Specialty Care

Sometimes sick or injured pets need the care of a veterinary medical specialist. When that happens, VCA specialty hospitals work closely with the general practitioner veterinarians who refer cases to us in order to provide seamless veterinary care to your pet. When your pet is facing any kind of serious illness or injury, our specialty referral hospitals will provide the compassionate and expert care your beloved pet needs.

Our goal is to make sure that when you and your pet are in need that you have access to board certified specialists who are up to date on the very latest developments in their field. In our state of the art hospitals, our specialists also have access to the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment tools and techniques from ultrasonography and endoscopy to CAT scans and even MRI.

As part of the VCA family, we have over 83 specialty hospitals across the US and Canada which provide referral specialty care, so there may be one near you. Our specialized services include: behavior, cardiology, critical care, dentistry, dermatology, integrative medicine, internal medicine, neurology, oncology, ophthalmology, radiology, rehabilitation, reproduction, and surgery.
