Dr. Nikki Mazzaschi

Dr. Nikki Mazzaschi grew up in Laconia, New Hampshire and received her B.S. in biology and animal behavior at the University of New Hampshire. After graduation, she worked as a veterinary technician for a few years, where she discovered her passion for veterinary medicine.

In 2014, Dr. Mazzaschi received her DVM from Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine. Her areas of professional interest include internal medicine, animal behavior, and all things feline!

Dr. Jay Katz

Dr. Jay Katz is the proud owner of Healthy Pets Veterinary Care – as well as an Old English Sheep Dog named Max. Dr. Katz excels at working with dogs and cats, but loves seeing “pocket pets” and other exotics as well. He has a special interest in surgery, dermatology, pain management, and senior care.

Dr. Katz received his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Tufts in 2013. Prior to veterinary school, he studied Philosophy, Religion, and Art History at Boston University. After college, Dr. Katz’s near‐pathologic desire to pet every dog he sees drove him into veterinary medicine. In his spare time, Dr. Katz enjoys traveling, yoga on the beach, basketball, soccer, scuba diving, enjoying the Florida sunshine, and no longer having New England winters in his life.

Dr. Chelsea Curry

Dr. Chelsea Curry was born and raised in Lakeland, Florida. She received both her B.S. in Biology and her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from the University of Florida. “Go Gators!” After many years of living in the center of the state and hours away from the ocean, she decided to move to the Florida coast. Dr. Curry has a special interest in neurology, integrative and holistic medicine, and preventative care. She is certified by the Chi Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine in acupuncture.

Dr. Curry enjoys spending her free time outdoors in any way she can, but especially loves being out in the water with her dogs, Scarlett and Blue.

Dr. Gray

Dr. Gray was born and raised in Houston, Texas. She completed both her B.S. in Biomedical Science and her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine at Texas A&M University. Dr. Gray moved to Florida for the sun and the sand. She has had a passion for animals since childhood, and loves nothing more than spending all of her time with pets. She is excited to provide your fur-babies with the best care possible in a stress-free environment. In her free time you can find her either with her dog, Pilot, or at the beach with her husband, Chris.

Hi, my name is Kim. I was born and raised in Boynton Beach FL. I have worked in the Veterinary Field since 2011. Starting from cleaning kennels and working my way up to a surgery technician.

Kasi is a true Florida native and has never lived outside Palm Beach County other than when she went to Collage in Dade City, Fl. Animals have always been her passion since she was small. She has worked with animals for the past 8 years. Her pack consists of 3 dogs (Gin, Daisy, and Zeke) a veiled chameleon (Yoshi) 2 turtles (Raphael and Michelangelo) a parakeet (Sweet pea) and a few aquariums. Although she tries not to have favorites, “bully” breeds hold a special place in her heart. When she isn’t at the office you can find her playing with the pack, spending time with her family, carpentry, crafting and baking.
