Susan Mango has always loved animals and wanted to be a veterinarian since a child. There was always a house full of pets to care for. After a rewarding management career, she attended Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine in St. Kitts and completed her clinical year at the University of Florida in 2006. Dr. Mango had always imagined working with all types of small animals, but in her clinical year, she discovered just how amazing cats truly were and how much they liked her. She believes all animals deserve the best medical care and to be treated with kindness and compassion.
Dr. Mango shares her home with several rescue cats, one of whom is paralyzed from a dog attack as a kitten. His name is Roosevelt and together they visit assisted living facilities in his role as a therapy cat. In her free time, she helps families who have disabled cats with proper care and enrichment so they live the best possible life.
