Interview with Dr. Bridget Fitzpatrick in Beijing Kids March 2012 issue:
Dr. Bridget Fitzpatrick is an American foreign consultant veterinarian participating in the Veterinary Learning Exchange Program at ICVS. Originally from Maryland, Dr. Fitzpatrick has lived in many of the states in the Eastern United States. Dr. Fitzpatrick received a B.S. from the University of Maryland and obtained her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree at Tuskegee University in Alabama. Dr. Fitzpatrick is an experienced veterinarian with special clinical interests in feline, avian and exotics medicine and surgery (e.g., rabbits, ferrets, possums, chinchillas, guinea pigs, hamsters, birds, turtles, lizards, snakes and other reptiles).
While serving the Amish community in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Dr. Fitzpatrick was part of the veterinary medical team caring for a troupe of animal actors, including skunks, macaws, giraffes and donkeys, that formed the cast of “Noah’s Ark,” a live play performed each Christmas. In addition to having worked at full service animal hospitals and small animal, avian and exotics specialty practices in the U.S., Dr. Fitzpatrick has also worked at several poultry disease laboratories, including those under the United States Department of Agriculture and at several wild bird study facilities, such as the International Crane Foundation. Her practice philosophy is to thoroughly evaluate each patient, clearly communicate with owners, and advocate for the best care for each patient. While in the U.S. she shares her home with a playful cat and two boisterous cockatiels. In her free time she enjoys social swing dance, reading, and creating lots of messy dishes, countertops, and floors in her cooking attempts.
