Meet the Cat Veterinarians in Roanoke, VA
Doctors Who Specialize in Caring for Cats
Connie J. Canode, DVM
Growing up on a small farm in Craig County, VA, instilled in me a love for animals, especially cats, and this love never left me. After graduating from high school I had planned on having a career in nursing. Upon graduation from college, I moved to the Charleston area of South Carolina and worked at the Medical University. While there I fell in love with the Isle of Palms area, and I knew someday I would be back.
As life goes, I moved back to Virginia, and worked in the Neuro Intensive Care Unit at Roanoke Memorial Hospital. I love nursing and the experience that came with the job, but my true love of animals kept calling me. A woman being a veterinarian was just unheard of back in the day. Anyone that knows me, knows that telling me women are not veterinarians knew that this would not fly with me. It made me more determined than ever. I enrolled at the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine (VA TECH), and I was in the second graduating class of the school.
After graduation, I worked for five years at a local veterinary clinic. This experience gave me the desire to open my own practice. In 1990, I fulfilled my dream by opening Veterinarians to Cats, and as they say I have never looked back.
I have met so many wonderful people here in the Roanoke Valley and surrounding areas. The trust they have placed in me with the care of their special family member means so much. I look forward to providing years of kitty care along with taking relaxing vacations at my beach house on the Isle of Palms.
