Katherine Kramer, Veterinarian

DVM, DABVP (Canine and Feline Practice)

Dr. Kramer’s scope of practice includes Veterinary Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Dr. Katherine 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 particularly 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. As an integrative veterinarian, incorporating cannabis in her practice has been a natural progression and has resulted in her becoming a vocal proponent for research and the use of cannabis as a therapeutic agent for companion animals.

Kathy is a Diplomate of the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners (Canine and Feline Practice) and a member of the College of Veterinarians of BC, the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society, The American Association of Feline Practitioners, the International Veterinary Academy of Pain Management and the Canadian Association for Veterinary Cannabinoid Medicine.
