Our Family


Dr. Katie Boatman

Dr. Katie Boatman is from Southfield, Michigan. She wanted to be a veterinarian when she was three years old, and she was lucky enough to spend time on her grandparent’s farm in northern Michigan, where her favorite animals were the cows and goats. She graduated from Michigan State University with a bachelor’s degree in Zoology, with a concentration in Zoo and Aquarium Science, and a degree in Fisheries and Wildlife. She then graduated from Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine. She had training with large animals, small animals and wildlife. Even today, she still loves cows!

She began her career in 2011 at a practice where she cared for various domestic and farm animals, from ferrets to chickens. She has a special place in her heart for goats and sheep. She now sees primarily dogs, cats, pocket pets and backyard farm animals.

Dr. Boatman lives with her partner, Ariel, and daughter, Ari. They have a wonderful kitty named Mercutio, a pupper named Sophie and a horse named Tatum. Her free time she enjoys woodworking, hiking, snowboarding, and horseback riding.

Clinic Kitty – Athena

Athena, our shy muted calico, has an adorable heart-shaped spot on her side. She came to us when she was just four weeks old and had a broken wrist. Now she is healthy and loves attention, though she is a little shyer than her brother. She will come out and say “hi” when it is quiet and there are few people around. If you happen to be sitting for a few minutes, she may come up for some pets. She loves taking naps in little cozy areas. When she gets to know you, she wants all your attention. She loves to run and play with her brother and get into mischief. She will come out of nowhere to get a treat so you always can buy her love.

Clinic Kitty – Spartacus

Spartacus is a tuxedo cat who was sick when he came to us. Now healthy, he is the resident clinic greeter. He loves coming up to the front to see who is coming in to meet him. (He thinks everyone is there to play with him.) He loves playing fetch and eating treats. He is always wrestling with his sister and getting into trouble. He wants to be where the action is. You’ll find him wherever he can catch some sun, but if you have a treat, he will come flying.
