Dr Katie Tuffey

Dr Katie bio

Katie Tuffey VMD was born and raised in Pennsylvania, but has always had strong ties to the Albany area where her father grew up. She graduated from the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine in 2003 and then moved to Kentucky for a year, where she did an internship in Emergency Medicine. She has been working in emergency medicine since that time. Some clients may have already met her at the Capital District Veterinary Referral Hospital, where she has worked full time since 2008 and will continue to work part time, but is excited to enter into the veterinary equivalent of “family” medicine.

In her free time, Katie loves to hang out with her family and is a distance runner and (past tense)dressage rider. Her favorite race is the Adirondack Distance Run which travels from Lake George to Bolton Landing and is challenging with great scenery. She lives outside of Saratoga on a small farmette, which houses several pasture potatoes (aka horses) and a mini donkey. Some day it will also include chickens and goats! You can reach her anytime with non-urgent questions at Please allow 48 hours for reply time.
