Dr. Kate Lupton, DVM
Feline Medicine and Surgery, Dental Surgery
I grew up on a farm in southern Alberta and received my veterinary education at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatoon. I am very excited to be in Lethbridge, working with great friends and pursuing my desire to bring quality cat friendly medicine to our beautiful city.
I have a passion for cats and I am grateful to be able to see primarily cats here at Family Pet Hospital – having obtained Gold Standard Cat Friendly Practice status. I take a slow approach to my patients – allowing them the time to get to know me and me to know them.
It’s never a good idea to rush a cat. I also enjoy getting to know the family behind those patients! I strive to provide the most up to date and thorough feline medicine and do so in a ‘cat only’ exam room.
I have an amazing artistic teenage daughter who loves horse jumping and sketching and a clowder of cats waiting for me at the end of each day. I describe myself as a crazy plant lady (I have over 100 house plants!), foodie, and aspiring bohemian.
