Katarzyna Kraszewska

Dr Niziołek’s „right hand”, becoming a veterinary cardiologist was her ambition since the beginning of her studies at the Warsaw Agricultural University. At that time she used to spend every minute of her spare time with Magdalena Garncarz, DVM, at her cardiology practice. Later, she was supervised by Dr Niziołek. During her studies, she did a short internship at the Cardiology Division of the Department of Internal Medicine and Clinic of Diseases of Horses, Dogs and Cats on Wrocław University of Environment and Life Science, under the supervision of Urszula Pasławska, DVM, PhD, and Agnieszka Noszczyk-Nowak, DVM. She has been treating animals with cardiorespiratory diseases with Dr Niziołek for many years. Dr Kraszewska is a member of ESVC (European Society of Veterinary Cardiologists), and an author of numerous publications. She has given lectures on electrocardiography and echocardiography courses, both in Poland and abroad. Dr Kraszewska specializes in cardiac rhythm abnormalities and ECG interpretation. She is skilled to perform full cardiologic examination, echocardiography, ECG, and holter monitoring. Moreover, she specializes in the cardiac examination of the smallest and most difficult patients to counsel in our clinic: rats, hamsters, chinchillas, rabbits, and ferrets. Her experience in assessing those tiny hearts is vast and expanding. In October 2012 she did an internship in Austria, under the supervision of our collegue and friend, Dr Peter Modler. At that period, she focused on interventional cardiology. In 2013 she did her first postgraduate cardiology course in ESAVS. She is also attending the postgraduate specialization course on internal medicine of dogs and cats.

Her hobbies are: travel, yachting, and good music. She is the owner of a dog named Mania. More information on Dr Kraszewska on her webpage: www.weterynarzkardiolog.pl
