Veterinarian's Biographies

Katie Stender, DVM

I will never forget the day our beloved yellow Labrador, Daisy, took her journey to the rainbow bridge. She was 12 years old and could no longer get up because of her chronic arthritis, and we knew it was time. It was very early in the morning, and my whole family was there as we greeted our vet at the door. Daisy was resting comfortably in her bed with her duck toy, and we all said our goodbyes, even Daisy's brother, our orange tabby, Skippy. The lasting memories of Daisy sleeping in her bed as our vet gently explained the process, made us feel at peace with this difficult decision. I have been forever grateful that she was able to do that for us, and for Daisy, and when I became a veterinarian, I felt honored and privileged to be able to do the same for other families. I graduated from the University of Florida with a Bachelors of Science and Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine. I share a home with my significant other, Taylor, and our four furry children. I have a special place in my heart for cats, and I have three of my own. We also have a black Labrador, Lady, who loves to go for car rides and garden with her dad. One of my favorite things about my profession is that I'm able to help animals, but also build lasting relationships with their owners.
