Dr. Rachel Bunn, DVM
Dr. Rachel Bunn is from Richmond VA (born and raised) and completed her veterinary training at Virginia Tech (VMCVM). She decided she wanted a change of pace and has lived in the South Side of Pittsburgh for the last year. At first she worked at a large practice, seeing both regular appointments and emergency visits. But when she heard that City Vets was opening to serve the South Side, she couldn’t wait to jump on board!
Rachel has two cats of her own: a Siberian cat named Liesel, from a private, responsible breeder; and Otter, a long-haired kitty who was rescued from under a porch at 2 weeks of age. Oliver was hand-raised along with his 3 brothers who are now with loving families of their own. Aside from working with your cats and dogs, and spending time with her own, Rachel enjoys hiking, camping, and rock-climbing.
