Dr. Suzanne Donahue received board certification in emergency medicine and critical care from the American College of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care in 2004. She has special interest in hematology and hypercoagulability and has been instrumental in validating the use of thromboelastography, a tool to detect and measure hypercoagulability, in veterinary patients. This background gives Dr. Donahue expertise in evaluating and treating critically ill patients with disorders of hypercoagulability, such as feline aortic thromboembolism, pulmonary thromboembolism, and disseminated intravascular coagulopathy.
Dr. Donahue attended King’s College in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, and graduated from the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine in 1999. She completed an internship in small animal medicine and surgery in 2000, a fellowship in emergency medicine in 2001, and a 3-year residency in emergency and critical care in 2004, all at the University of Pennsylvania.
Dr. Donahue enjoys spending her free time with her four children and relaxing anywhere near sand and waves.
Dr. Donahue has received numerous research grants and has published in the Journal of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care. She has lectured at the International Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Symposium and at the national AKC conference.
