Hi there! Welcome to KatieHoganDVM.com. This is my personal and professional website where I host my blog and offer services to improve the lives of pets and vets across the nation. I am a small animal veterinarian living and working in the greater Cincinnati area.

I am passionate about veterinary medicine, and also about the bond that my clients have with their pets. I know that my readers are pet owners trying to find the truth on how they can best provide for their beloved pet. I hope to help you, your pet, and your veterinarian live the best lives imaginable through my blog, my veterinary relief services, and the resources I share.

I write about topics that center around veterinary news, the human-animal bond, and leadership. Don’t forget to subscribe so that you can stay up to date and be the best pet owner that you can be!

My Biography

I am originally from Frankfort, KY. I have been enamored with veterinary medicine since a very young age- my dad often jokes that I wanted to be a veterinarian before I even knew what the word ‘veterinarian’ meant. After high school, I attended Murray State University where I was a sister of Sigma Alpha sorority and an officer of the Animal Health Technology and Pre-Vet club.

I graduated from Murray in 2012 and went on to attend veterinary school at Auburn University in Auburn, Alabama. While there, I was a member of Omega Tau Sigma professional veterinary fraternity and was an officer in SCAVMA (student chapter of the AVMA).

After graduation from veterinary school in 2016, I started working at Noah’s Ark Animal Clinic in Fort Wright, KY. While at Noah’s ark, I met my wife, Jen, and made life-long friends. I practiced here until June 2019.

In June 2019 I started working at Grady Veterinary Hospital, a state of the art, 24/7 veterinary hospital where I saw dogs, cats, and small mammals for preventative care and on an emergency basis. However, after the COVID19 pandemic I made my way to All Creatures Animal Hospital in Amelia, Ohio, where I currently practice.

Starting in January 2023, I will be taking the leap to start my own veterinary relief business. Relief veterinarians are “substitute” veterinarians that help veterinary practices when they are understaffed, overbooked, or when the regular veterinarian(s) just need a little time off! I am excited about the opportunity to help Veterinarians in the Greater Cincinnati area and will post updates about my journey closer to January 2023. For more information about my relief services, please see my Relief Services Page.

My wife, Jen, works at Noah’s Ark Animal Clinic in Florence, Kentucky. We have a home together in Demossville, Kentucky, where we have a 10-acre homestead. On the homestead we have three dogs, four cats, 20 something chickens, registered myotonic/fainting goats, and two horses. You can read more about our homestead journey here.

In my free time, I enjoy horseback riding, hiking, and spending time outdoors. I am also working toward my blue belt in B.J.J. (Brazilian Jui Jitsu). I am an avid reader and especially love learning about ways to improve myself, my practice, my platform, and my leadership abilities.
