Dr. Kate Lupton, DVM
“Even the smallest feline is a masterpiece”
Dr. Kate is our resident feline veterinarian and is so passionate about helping her kitty patients and their families. Striving to bring quality veterinary care to all cats, she achieved the designation of
Gold Standard Cat Friendly Practice for Family Pet Hospital in 2013. Kate loves where she works and the people she works with.
Dr. Kate feels lucky to have strong roots in Southern Alberta where she was born and raised on a beef farm. Even from a young child, she was determined to become a veterinarian. Kate received her Bachelor of Science in Biology at the University of Lethbridge and then her life long dreams were realized when she attended the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatoon. She left her mark there by starting the Feline Medicine Club and then graduated in 2012 with distinction and the honor of the American Association of Feline Practitioners student award.
Kate practices medicine with a gentle, quiet care and enjoys developing life long relationships with her patients and their families. In 2019, she was deeply grateful to be recognized as the Canadian Small Animal Practitioner of the year. She loves educating about feline topics and has written for several local publications as well as providing seminars for the public.
When she is not enjoying her kitty patients, she is home with her teenage daughter, 7 cats, and jungle of houseplants.
