Katherine Earl

Katherine Earl started her career at DoveLewis as an intern in 2007, and she has remained on staff ever since. Dr. Earl wanted to be a veterinarian since she was five years old. Passionate for the area of pain management, Dr. Earl pursued a rigorous curriculum of online and in-person classes, examinations, and case logs/studies to receive her CVA (certification in veterinary acupuncture) through IVAS in April 2020 and established DoveLewis' Integrative Pain Management service. 

Having a deep passion for emergency medicine, Dr. Earl has not only pursued her love of pain management but has also established the DoveLewis EmpowER DVM Mentorship Program. This initiative aims to support aspiring veterinarians interested in emergency medicine, empowering them to excel in the dynamic environment of the ER.

Outside of work, Dr. Earl enjoys skiing, cooking and throwing dinner parties, listening to music, reading books, and chasing after her two kids.
