Katherine McKeown, VMD
Dr. McKeown (aka “Dr. Kit”) grew up in Lexington, Kentucky and started riding hunter/jumpers at a young age, which fostered her interest in becoming an equine veterinarian. She obtained a Bachelors of Science in Biology from Bucknell University in Pennsylvania in 2001, graduating with honors.
Dr. Kit worked as a technician at Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital in Kentucky for 3 years prior to attending the University of Pennsylvania-School of Veterinary Medicine. While at Rood and Riddle, Dr. Kit spent many hours observing and assisting Dr. Scott Morrison and his assistant farriers with complicated, hospitalized equine podiatry patients. Dr. Kit graduated from Penn with honors in 2008, and returned to Rood and Riddle to complete an internship in equine surgery, medicine and anesthesia from 2008-2009. She completed a second internship at Merritt and Associates Equine Hospital with a focus on equine lameness from 2009-2010. Dr. Kit worked in small animal general practice for a short time prior to obtaining an Associate Veterinarian position with Bristol Veterinary Service in Union Grove, WI in the spring of 2011.
Dr. Kit’s primary interests include equine lameness, diagnostic imaging and podiatry, though she enjoys all aspects of equine and small animal general practice.
