After veterinary school, Dr. Katie Johnson completed a 1 year intensive rotating internship at Blue Ridge Equine Clinic in Virginia. During her internship, she decided that although she enjoys riding horses, she preferred the challenge and diagnostic capabilities available in small animal medicine.  After her internship, she taught anatomy at Elmira College in northern NY and worked at several different small animal hospitals in the area. 

“I have a true love for teaching, which I find fulfilled in my daily job of educating clients. I strive to provide the best care possible for every patient and work with owners to decide the best options for their companions. What I love about my job is there is always room to grow and evolve into a better veterinarian.”

Dr. Johnson has practiced for the past 3 years as an emergency veterinarian at Adobe Animal Hospital in Los Altos, CA.  She has recently moved to Boise to be near family and for a more relaxed pace of life.  She has always been drawn to cats and is ecstatic to get to work in a feline only practice at The Cat Doctor.  Dr. Johnson hopes to get board certified in feline medicine, which will involve extensive studying, record keeping and is a several year process. 

Although she adores all her feline patients, Dr. Johnson has a special love for orange tabby cats and professional interests in soft tissue surgery, preventative care, pain management and geriatric medicine.
