Park Equine Hospital welcomes intern, Dr. Nicholas Rataj.

Originally from Florida, Dr. Nicholas Rataj moved to Kentucky when he was two-years-old, and it’s been home ever since.

Dr. Rataj attended Murray State University, where he received a Bachelor’s of Science in Agriculture as a pre-veterinary major, and also received a chemistry minor. After undergraduate, Dr. Rataj decided to take a semester at the University of Louisville for completion of one class while waiting on his acceptance into veterinary school. Dr. Rataj earned his DVM in 2017 from Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine.

Dr. Rataj’s first veterinary related job started during high school and continued part time through college at Crestwood Animal Hospital. He worked as a kennel technician and eventually became a veterinary assistant. As his interests grew in large animal medicine, Dr. Rataj took on a student job for nearly three years in the hospital barns at Auburn Universities J.T. Vaughan Large Animal Hospital. His senior year in veterinary school he was employed as a large animal student resident and worked after hours emergencies.

Dr. Rataj chose Park Equine Hospital because of the reputation of the practice and the great things he had heard from previous employees/interns; he couldn’t pass up the opportunity to jump in. He also says there is no better place to be immersed in a variety of horse experiences like central Kentucky.

His favorite thing about his position at Park Equine is the fact that he gets to see horses get better, and have a significant part in it. It’s that warm feeling that he’s worked so hard towards.

When he’s not at the clinic, Dr. Rataj enjoys just about everything, especially if it involves being outside. He likes to make winter trips snowboarding, and beach trips for surfing. He also enjoys hoping on his horse and leisurely make it through some trails, and playing music

Park Equine Hospital would like to welcome another one of our interns, Dr. Bianca Fedele!

Born in New York, Dr. Bianca Fedele grew up on the island of Jamaica in the Caribbean. There she spent the majority of her vacation time working Off- the- Track Thoroughbreds. Dr. Fedele received her Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry from Ithaca College in New York. She received her DVM from St. George’s University in Grenada and completed her clinical year at the Ohio State University.

Dr. Fedele always knew she wanted to work in some form of medicine and went back and forth with the decision to go to veterinary school. The turning point was that she wanted to be able to do and understand more when she lost her own horses.

Dr. Fedele really enjoys that all the doctors and staff at Park Equine Hospital work together as a team to achieve the best care possible for patients. She says the best part of her job is sending home a healthy patient. The foaling season is also incredible- and although it is exhausting, it is equally exhilarating.

When she’s not at the clinic, Dr. Fedele enjoys CrossFit, horseback riding, hiking, and daydreaming about the beach.
