Our Veterinary Team
Dr. David Bolotin
Graduate of the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine in 1986, Dr. David Bolotin. He came here in 1987 to finish an internship in small animal surgery and medicine and has lived in Fairfield County ever since.
He worked as a relief veterinarian for several local practices throughout his internship, and he was the managing veterinarian at the emergency veterinary clinic, covering nighttime and weekend shifts. The combination of his internship experience and exposure to a wide range of different procedures enabled him to develop a veterinary strategy that seeks the greatest medical results in the most caring and effective way.
He founded Just Cats Veterinary Hospital in 1991, one of the first establishments in the US to cater entirely to cats and their owners, after realizing the advantages of a feline-only practice and conferring with partners around the nation.
Numerous facets of feline medicine are appealing to Dr. Bolotin, who also has a keen interest in gerontology. He also holds USDA accreditation as a veterinarian.
Dr. Bolotin is married and has two kids. He also has a Jack Russell named Bean and two amazing kitties named Lilly and Maisy.
Even though he doesn’t have much free time, he makes the most of Long Island Sound whenever he can, a pastime that still makes Just Cats a special part of his life.
His yacht is called “Cats My Drift.”
