I apologize for not having posted in a while. I have been making some changes in my professional life that have kept me from writing regularly.


Starting this Memorial Day Weekend, the Northway Animal Emergency Clinic will become the Capital Region’s first 24/7/365 veterinary emergency and critical care facility. With this change, they have asked me to join their staff on a full time basis. I will be working a combination of overnight and day shifts there. On Fridays, I will apply my training in rehabilitation and pain management with the surgical skills of Dr. Courtney Fitzpatrick of Veterinary Specialties Referral Center for consultations and advanced surgery.


I have also begun to work with Zoetis as one of their Elite Speakers. This program is available for veterinary hospitals where I come in and discuss aspects of veterinary pain management, anesthesia and sedation techniques. This includes the time around a surgery, the preparation for it as well as the follow up care and chronic osteoarthritis management. For those veterinary professionals who are interested in learning more about this service please contact me at drmattbrunke@gmail.com or your local Zoetis Territory Business Manager.


I am hoping to continue to provide rehabilitation and pain management consultations and services within the Greene County, NY area and will keep you updated on those developments.
