A native of Cambridge, Mass., he graduated from Michigan State University, where he also earned his degree in veterinary medicine. He worked in the emergency room of the Animal Medical Center in Manhattan from 1978 to 1982, when he became associated with the Park East Animal Hospital.
Dr. Kritsick later worked at the Bergh Memorial Animal Hospital of the A.S.P.C.A. in Manhattan and at the Bide-a-Wee Home Association. He was staff veterinarian and spokesman for the Humane Society of the United States in Washington.
Over the years he tended to the pets of a variety of celebrities. His broadcast experience dated to 1978, when he started a nine-year stint as the veterinarian for "Romper Room," a children's show on WOR-TV. Before "Good Morning America" he also appeared regularly on Cable News Network.
He was the author of two books, "Dr. Kritsick's Tender Loving Cat Care" (1987), and "Creature Comforts: The Adventures of a City Vet" (1983, with Patti Goldstein). He also wrote columns and articles for newspapers and magazines.
