Meet Our Doctor & Staff

Dr. Megan Dundas DVM

Megan Dundas, DVM

Veterinarian

Dr. Megan Dundas is proud to be a certified Fear Free practitioner: Fear Free training gives her the tools to alleviate animals’ stress and anxiety during office visits. It’s also handy when she’s with her own pets, including a deaf Boxer dog and a couple of (formerly) stray cats that she bottle-fed when they were kittens and then adopted.

A collection of animals is nothing new for Dr. Dundas, who lived in Westchester as a young child before moving upstate to a dairy-farming community near the Adirondacks. There, she was surrounded by animals: from the cows that outnumbered the people, to the critters she found in the woods (and sometimes brought home). 

 Veterinary medicine was her calling from an early age. She received degrees in anthropology and biology before earning her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine at Western University of Health Sciences in Pomona, California, where she was inducted into Phi Zeta, the veterinary honor society. She practiced at Rhinebeck Animal Hospital in Dutchess County before returning to Westchester to buy Lincolndale Veterinary Center. 

Some areas of veterinary medicine Dr. Dundas specializes in are: dentistry, soft tissue surgery, and infectious disease. Most of all she likes getting to know pets and their owners, helping animals live happy, healthy lives. 

Outside of work Dr. Dundas enjoys fishing, biking and exploring the outdoors with her family. She also likes to visit various museums and eateries in NYC and the surrounding area.

Kathryn Panigrahi, DVM

Veterinarian

Dr. Panigrahi is a Westchester County native who received her degree in Biology from SUNY Purchase before attending veterinary school at Ross University. After completing her clinical training at The Ohio State University, she graduated magna cum laude and remained at OSU to pursue an internship in equine medicine and surgery. She returned to New York in 2020 to continue a career in small animal general practice and equine emergency medicine.

Dr. Panigrahi’s approach to patient care can be best described as a “spectrum of care.” She recognizes that each patient is unique, and their medical journey should be tailored to their specific requirements. By collaborating closely with pet owners and integrating their insights into the treatment plan, she ensures a comprehensive and effective approach to healing. She believes that a balanced approach to medicine, combining the latest advancements in veterinary science with a deep understanding of an animal’s individual needs, is key to optimal health outcomes. With her open communication style and compassion, she seeks to establish lifelong bonds with her clients and their beloved pets.

Her professional interests include internal medicine, ultrasonography, and nutrition.

Pictured with her is Pip, the senior dog she rescued in March of 2023. She and Pip also share their home with Bea, the retired racing greyhound, and Harley, a Jack Russell Terrier, on her family’s farm in Dutchess County.

In her spare time, Dr. Kate is an avid reader, Renaissance fair attendee, and volunteer with a local greyhound rescue organization.
