Curt M Cavanaugh, DVM

An    Iowa    native,    Dr.    Cavanaugh    attended    Iowa    State    University    and received   his   Doctor   of   Veterinary   Medicine   degree   in   1988.   He   has   been practicing   in   the   Kansas   City   area   since   1989   and   started   Cavanaugh Pet   Hospital   in   2000.   In   2007,   the   practice   moved   from   their   original Independence   location   to   the   custom-designed   building   in   Blue   Springs.     Dr.    Cavanaugh’s    love    of    animals    and    the    people    who    own    them    is evident   in   both   his   practice   and   in   his   personal   life.      He   has   special interests in senior pet care, oncology, and genetics. While   Dr.   Cavanaugh   and   his   wife,   Jane,   hail   from   the   same   home   town, they    didn’t    start    dating    until    a    chance    meeting    at    a    Fourth    of    July gathering   in   college.      A   full   life   and   two   kids   later,   they   now   live   in   Blue Springs   with   their   rescue   animals.      Roxy,   a   gentle   Collie   and   Abby,   a charming   Labradoodle   share   space   with   Fra-Gilley,   a   three-legged   cat.     Dr.   Cavanaugh   enthusiastically   follows   college   football   &   basketball   and in   his   rare   spare   time,   he   and   his   dogs   can   be   found   enjoying   the   great outdoors at Remembrance Lake.  

Lisa Fleischmann, DVM

As   a   Blue   Springs   graduate,   Dr.   Fleischmann   is   excited   to   be   practicing in   her   home   town,   returning   here   after   graduating   from   the   University   of Missouri    College    of    Veterinary    Medicine    in    1992.    Dr.    Fleischmann particularly   enjoys   developing   relationships   and   educating   clients   on   the best   ways   to   care   for   their   pets.   She   has   4   children   and   too   many   pets   to count   --   including   a   growing   flock   of   chickens!   She   also   “digs”   gardening and the outdoors - as well as a regretful pun from time to time.
