Pets First Veterinary Clinic is committed to the highest quality, compassionate care, exceptional client service and the desire to build a lifelong relationship with you and your pet.
Dr. Chitra Natarajan, or Dr. C as she is known to her clients and patients in the Chicago area, has been in practice for almost 16 years. She received her Bachelor of Arts from Barnard College in New York and both her Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine and Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana.
In 2000, after looking into alternative approaches to further help her patients, Dr. C became certified in veterinary acupuncture by the Chi Institute in Florida. Since then, Dr. C has taken multiple courses in different alternative medicine modalities such as western herbs, Chinese herbs and homotoxicology.
Dr. C lives with two orange tabby cats, Fiona and Fanny, who decided to adopt her in 1995 while she was a senior in veterinary school. In her free time, she loves playing tennis, improving her proficiency in Italian and spending time with her family and friends.
