Great Falls Animal Hospital Welcomes New Doctor

Great Falls Animal Hospital is welcoming Dr. Leanna Kalinsky to its veterinary team. Kalinsky comes to Great Falls with more than 15 years of experience in small animal medicine. She is certified by Fear Free, a program designed to reduce fear, anxiety and stress in pets receiving veterinary care. She also has experience in preventive medicine, internal medicine, geriatric care and soft tissue surgery. She was named one of Northern Virginia’s Top Veterinarians by Northern Virginia Magazine in 2017 and 2018.

“Dr. Kalinsky is a great addition to our caring and knowledgeable staff, and we’re especially excited to hire our first Fear Free-certified doctor,” said Dr. Laurie Cook, lead veterinarian at Great Falls Animal Hospital. “She believes strongly that eliminating the fear, anxiety and stress that pets encounter while receiving veterinary care is of utmost importance for their long-term health, and that is a belief our hospital has adopted as well.”

Kalinsky lives in Leesburg, with her husband and their furry family, Monty, their toy poodle, and Mr. Ribdee, their almost 18-year-old orange tabby cat.
