Katherine Kramer, DVM
Dr. Kramer's scope of practice includes Veterinary Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Dr. Kathy Kramer joined Vancouver Animal Wellness Hospital in March 2011 after nine years of practicing veterinary medicine in North Carolina. Animals have always been a part of her life, from her early childhood on a wildlife refuge in the Florida Keys, to working on a white rhino in South Africa while earning her degree at the University of Georgia School of Veterinary Medicine.
Kathy became interested in alternative modalities early in her career, "every day I see the benefits of melding the amazing advancements of Western medicine with the wisdom of Eastern medicine." She greatly enjoys being a veterinarian particularily when she is working on complex internal medicine cases, educating clients on preventative healthcare for their pets, gently approaching geriatric cases and integrating Veterinary Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture into her holistic approach.
Kathy is a member of the College of Veterinarians of BC, the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society, The American Association of Feline Practitioners and the International Veterinary Academy of Pain Management.
When she is not working at the hospital, Kathy and her husband Alex can be found taking their dog Kippy, one of the best-behaved terriers you might ever meet, to the dog beach. They also share their home with Eddie, Vonnegut and Sal, three very handsome black and white cats.
