Dr. Kathryn Zelma


Dr. Kathryn received a Bachelor of Science from the University of Guelph in 2013 and went on to graduate as a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from the Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine after spending her clinical year at Michigan State University.

Kathryn’s passion for animals started at a young age as she helped family and friends care for their fuzzy companions. Her continued desire to help others was reflected in her experiences tutoring fellow students while also fostering adoptable cats and dogs while they were looking for their forever homes. Since she started practicing, Dr. Kathryn enjoys forming meaningful relationships with both pets and their owners and finds this one of the most rewarding parts of being a veterinarian. She strives to help pet parents in understanding and improving their companion’s wellbeing to help pets live longer, healthier, happier lives. Dr. Kathryn has special interests in internal medicine, diagnostic imaging, and neurology.

Dr. Kathryn lives with her significant other and their two cats, Sheena and Maci. In her spare time, she enjoys baking, hiking, practicing yoga, and music. /

Dear Clients,

We are continuing to strive to provide the best medicine possible for your pets during these challenging times. Below are some important updates to our operating policies.

This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!


  • Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
  • Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
  • Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). Please make sure to wear a facemask when picking up your orders. To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on Online Store.
