June: A Warm Welcome

A Warm Welcome to Dr. Katharine White, DVM

We are pleased and excited to welcome Dr. Katharine (Katy) White to Swiftsure Equine Veterinary Services. Dr. Katy has accepted a permanent position, and will be joining the practice in July, adding enthusiasm and expertise to our growing team. Dr. Katy just completed a rigorous and well-respected internship at Littleton Equine Medical Center in Colorado where she gained specialty training in equine emergencies, internal medicine, surgery, and sports medicine. Dr. Katy graduated from the University of Calgary Veterinary Medicine in 2019 (same university as Dr. Kaitlin) at the top of her class. While earning her DVM, Dr. Katy pursued her interest in sports medicine through student positions and externships at referral equine hospitals in Canada and in the USA including Moore Equine Veterinary Centre and Burwash Equine Services.

While earning her undergraduate degree at the University of Victoria, Dr. Katy developed a love for Vancouver Island, met her future husband Colby, a biologist, and volunteered with Dr. Danica at SEVS. Dr. Danica was so impressed by the aspiring pre vet student’s capabilities, intelligence, and personality, that she hoped Dr. Katy may return one day to Victoria and join the practice. And now that vision is coming to fruition!

Please join Dr. Danica, Dr. Kaitlin and the Swiftsure team in extending a warm re-welcome to Dr. Katy as she starts seeing routine appointments and emergency services next month.
