Dr. Justin Cupka has enjoyed exploring different parts of the country during his collegiate studies. He graduated first in his class from Unity College in Maine with a Bachelor’s of Science in Captive Wildlife Care and Education, completed his vet school prerequisites at Virginia Commonwealth University and graduated from UC Davis, School of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Cupka enjoys the plethora of patients he cares for at Montclair Veterinary Hospital, especially exotics including birds, reptiles and amphibians. Over the years, he has also become increasingly interested in positive reinforcement training and behavior modification as well.
Not only does Dr. Cupka enjoy treating reptiles, he has many of his own, including numerous snakes and Hime, the Argentine Black and White Tegu. Even with his love of exotics he could not live without a dog of his own. Many of us at Montclair are fond of his rescue dog Tonks, since she commonly comes to hang out with us in the office.
In his free time, Dr. Cupka practices kung fu, takes Tonks on hikes, enjoys blues dancing and being creative with art projects including flintknapping, chainmail and watercolors.
