Dr. Katarina Luther has considered the Madison area home since experiencing it as an undergraduate at the University of Wisconsin. Following graduation, she worked in the corporate world at Nestle Purina within their feline pet food division. She later took the next step to veterinary school and graduated from the UW-School of Veterinary Medicine in 2002.
Since graduation, Dr.Luther has practiced exclusively in small animal, emergency hospitals, and specialty clinics in the Madison, Milwaukee, and Chicago areas. She became involved with Cat Care Clinic many years ago and over time, assumed ownership of the clinic. In 2018, Dr.Luther opened Cat Care Clinic’s second location in downtown Madison and in 2019, To Your Door mobile veterinary care was added to the organization.
Dr.Luther loves interacting daily with long-standing Cat Care Clinic clients and friends, and welcoming new patients into the Cat Care family. She enjoys being actively involved with community organizations and local animal shelters. “I enjoy mentoring staff and visiting students, and helping them reach their goals as many of my own mentors have helped me throughout my career. We have veterinarians and students from all over the country come to spend time in our clinic, due to its long-standing reputation for exceptional veterinary care and management” she says. Most recently, Dr.Luther founded Guardian Whiskers Inc, a non-profit organization that develops community wellness and literacy programs to help people, particularly children, by utilizing the human-animal bond experience. “Thanks to our collaboration with local rescues, other veterinary hospitals, vendors, and local business organizations, we have a great network to use for making a difference in our community, uniting people with the proven health benefits of pets. There are a lot of great things to come with Guardian Whiskers.”
What does Dr.Luther love about Cat Care Clinic? “I never have a doubt that every CCC team member is looking out for the very best interest of each patient, as well as each client. We have a truly special caring, skilled team. With longer appointments and a focus on the whole picture of each cat’s health and home environment, we really get to know our clients. I’m fortunate to have each and every staff member here, every cat parent, and of course every adorable cat whose life we’re given the chance to be a part of.”
