Dr. Katherine Olson
Dr. Katherine Olson is an associate veterinarian for Companion Animal Hospital. She grew up in Placerville on a small hobby farm and made her way back after traveling to different parts of the world for school and pleasure. Dr. Olson developed a passion for medicine while treating various animals on the farm she grew up on as well as tending to her own pets. Pursuing the passion of veterinary medicine and travel, Dr. Olson moved to the island of St. Christopher (St Kitts) and attended Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine followed by clinical rotations at Oregon State University, Go Beavers! While in school Dr. Olson worked on Amblyomma tick research, fish identification and assessment in the waters around St Kitts, and presented her final paper on Traumatic Brain Injury.
Dr. Olson's husband, Joel, is a passionate ultra runner while she enjoys shorter runs, biking, horses, and other outdoor activities. Her daughter Olivia, and son Bruce all love animals and spending time outside. Currently, Dr. Olson only has 2 cats, Ginny a 17-year-old tabby who she rescued when she was a couple days old and nursed back to health, and Whitney a 4-year-old Siamese Manx mix who was adopted from the Oregon Humane Society. Surprisingly enough, both cats love people and Whitney frequently leash walks. Dr. Olson does have a passion for complete care and preventative medicine, especially dentistry as keeping the mouth healthy will help prolong the life and health of your pets.
