We are happy to welcome Dr. Timothy Cujdik to our team! Dr. Cujdik is a wonderful addition to the hospital, learn more about him below and we hope you’ll stop in and meet him in person!
Some are lucky enough to find love early in life and that is the story of Dr. Timothy Cujdik and his veterinary career. Dr. Cujdik’s first job in high school was at a veterinary hospital. That first job ignited a passion that would continue to fuel him for the next 25+ years.
After graduating from University of Maryland Dr. Cujdik worked for NIH (National Institute of Health) studying the effects of thyroid hormones and steroids on physiological function. During his tenure at NIH he coauthored many peer reviewed published papers that are still referenced and in circulation today. Research was fun but there was still something missing for Dr. Cujdik so he left NIH to pursue a degree in Veterinary Medicine at University of Tennessee.
He graduated in 1992 and returned home to his roots in Baltimore where his veterinary career has flourished. Dr. Cujdik spent the next 23 years practicing veterinary medicine at Main Street Animal Hospital, Vinson Animal Hospital, and most recently Old Court Animal Hospital. He has an amazing reputation in our region and it is with great honor that we now get to call him our teammate. As of September 1st, 2016, Dr. Timothy Cujdik is officially Hunt Valley Animal Hospital family.
Dr. Cujdik is passionate about his patient’s and their parent’s well-being. You will find him constantly going that extra mile to ensure everyone is comfortable. He loves everything about veterinary medicine, especially digging into tough skin cases. Dermatology is definitely one of his favorite areas.
Outside of the veterinary hospital Dr. Cujdik has had a long successful show career and has some of the top Old English Sheepdogs in the U.S. and Europe. He has even been to Crufts! He has had multiple best in show wins and knows what it takes to get there so he is a popular veterinarian of choice in the show circuit.
When Dr. Cujdik is not talking veterinary medicine he can be found gardening his 5 acre home in Greenspring Valley, tackling numerous DIY projects, taking time in Dewey Beach, and of course spending time with his four legged and human family members.
