Chief of Staff

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. 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.
