Dr. Kate and Dr. Pat met during veterinary school at Iowa State University. Following graduation they married and both practiced mixed animal medicine for a couple of years. Drs Kate and Pat became more focused on small animal practice and swine practice, respectively as thier careers developed.
Being admitted to the profession of veterinary medicine, I solemnly swear to use my scientific knowledge and skills for the benefit of society through the protection of animal health and welfare, the prevention and relief of animal suffering, the conservation of animal resources, the promotion of public health, and the advancement of medical knowledge.
I will practice my profession conscientiously, with dignity, and in keeping with the principles of veterinary medical ethics.
I accept as a lifelong obligation the continual improvement of my professional knowledge and competence.
On St Patrick's Day 2014 Drs Kate and Pat purchased Atlantic Animal Health Center from Dr. Keith Leonard. Dr. Kate is the general practitioner and manages AAHC, while Dr. Pat practices as a Technical Service Veterinarian for Elanco Animal Health in the swine department. Since purchasing the practice the clinic has undergone full remodeling and clients and patients have transitioned to knowing and trusting their new Doctor.
