Dr. Eileen Fatcheric-Burns

Dr. Eileen Fatcheric-Burns joined the Fairmount Animal Hospital team as a Veterinarian in 1992.  She grew up in the Tipperary Hill neighborhood of Syracuse.  Her combination of her love of animals and caregiving nature made her want to become a veterinarian at a very young age! She is a graduate of Cornell University's College of Veterinary Medicine.  

 Dr. Fatcheric's has 4 specific goals with each patient visit:

1. Make her patient feel relaxed and comfortable.

2. Make her client feel appreciated and respected.

3. Provide the best possible treatment/medical care for her patient.

4. Listen well to her client, address all questions and concerns, provide as much information and education as she can to help keep their pets healthy and happy for as long as possible.

 Dr. Fatcheric's family includes her husband Mike (CBA & Lemoyne), Dog Rebel, Cat Cookie and Horses Paz & Kelsey.  She cannot imagine a life without them and wants to give them the happiest, healthiest, fullest lives. She has a special place in her heart for pets who have gone on in peace: Dakota, Dixie, Cassidy, Sundance, and Rain.  In addition to her furbabies, she also has nieces and nephews (several of whom are talented athletes) whom she enjoys spending time with and bragging about! 

Dr. Fatcheric competes in the sport Agility with her dogs.  It is so much fun and creates a super special bond between herself and her dog! They work together as a team! She has had 2 dogs qualify for and compete in AKC National Events. 

Some of her hobbies include running, hiking, reading, knitting, gardening, and spending the warmer months at her camp in Chaumont Bay, Lake Ontario.  Her and her husband are avid sports fans and SU Basketball season ticket holders.  She also has been known to enjoy a game of Candy Crush! 

Dr. Fatcheric aspires to live by the words in "The Desiderata", a poem written by Max Ehrmann in 1927. some of which includes: 

Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others,
even the dull and the ignorant;
they too have their story.

Client Testimonials

"We have being taking our pets to Fairmount Animal Hospital for over 25 years, and needless to say, we are very pleased with their care. Everyone on the entire staff – Dr. Losito and all the other veterinarians as well as the technicians and receptionists – have always been warm, friendly, professional, knowledgeable and caring. Their larger new building is a top notch state-of-the art animal hospital with a comfortable reception area as well. Their expanded staff and extended hours make appointments more accommodating for us, so our pets can receive care when needed.
Everyone at Fairmount Animal Hospital truly loves animals, and they treat our pets as if they were their own. At each of our visits, they take the time to fully examine them pets, explain procedures and offer advice. They also take note of each of our pet’s unique personalities, so they can best treat each of them in the most effective and least upsetting manner.
Most importantly, we’ve been through difficult times as our pets aged. Everyone on the Fairmount Animal Hospital staff was especially understanding, compassionate and comforting.
In short, we love Fairmount Animal Hospital, and gratefully appreciate having them as our veterinarians. We highly recommend Fairmount Animal Hospital. We know your fur babies will definitely receive excellent care there."

"At first, we weren't sure we'd like Fairmount Animal Hospital. Prior to becoming clients, we'd enjoyed years of personalized attention at a smaller one-vet practice. But when that practice abruptly closed, we were forced to find someone new. Everyone we asked gushed about FHA, noting their expanded hours, compassionate doctors and staff, and focus on continuous improvement of the facility and their offerings. Now we've been taking our fur babies there for several years, and I can say without reservation that FHA lives up to the great reviews. They always find a way to accommodate spur-of-the-moment visits, and it's such a relief that they offer Urgent Care and weekend hours. Bonus: they work well with our pet insurance company, faxing forms to ensure that we are reimbursed as quickly as possible! In sum, Fairmount Animal Hospital treats us with the same care that we lavish on our own four-legged family! We love them."

"My experience at Fairmount animal hospital was wonderful! Dr. Logan was very helpful and knowledgeable. The hospital itself is very clean and well maintained. I would highly recommend anyone with pets to check this place out!"

- Chris H. / Syracuse

"Amazing staff. Super friendly. Beautiful vibe, I loved it. The assistant my cat had before the vet came in was very informational and even though my cat was stressed and scared crapless he still cared for her and was very sweet and gentle. The vet was amazing and my baby girl took a liking to her sweet voice giving her assurance everything will be alright. Thank you so much! Very amazing first impression and we have decided to make this location our only location for our furbaby."
