Dr. Firnett or Dr. KT as we call her, has been a veterinarian for 3 years. She grew up in Menominee and graduated from Menominee High School. She attended the University of Minnesota at Minneapolis/St. Paul majoring in Fisheries & Wildlife. After earning her Bachelor's degree she made the decision to attended veterinary school, also at the University of Minnesota.
Dr. KT has always loved animals and first realized her interest in veterinary medicine at the age of four. While attending a veterinary appointment with her mom and their dog Uno, Kaytee kept trying to sneak a look in back at all the animals. Finally the veterinarian took her on a short tour and showed her all the animals. That was the day she declared “I want to be a vet”. Now, 23 years later she is living that dream!
On the job Dr. Kaytee does everything from preforming surgeries, to dental exams, routine vaccinations and everything in between. She especially enjoys internal medicine and the management of chronic disease because it allows her to develop a relationship with the client and patient. She also loves meeting new puppies and kittens and watching them grow up.
Kaytee and Adam share their house with two dogs. Mia is a yellow lab and almost the perfect dog, with some “diva” tendencies. Their other dog is a black lab named Piper. Piper is a rescue who was due to be euthanized because of physical and behavioral problems. Kaytee and Adam took her in as a hospice patient and she is keeping their hands full with her antics ever since- especially eating anything and everything and counter surfing.
Five cats also call Kaytee and Adam their pet parents.
Cinder, Kaytee's first cat, came into her life while she was working on a dairy farm during college.
Pawly was adopted from the animal shelter. He isn't the smartest but he is the sweetest.
Wall-E started as a foster kitten but didn't like like the people who were going to adopt him, so he stayed with Kaytee.
Maddee was brought into the clinic as a sick orphaned kitten to be euthanized. Dr. Kaytee couldn't bear the thought of it and so adopted her. She has grown into a happy healthy young cat.
Haley turned up at Kaytee and Adam's house with 3 & ½ legs. Presumably she had lost most of her leg to a trap. Dr. Kaytee took her in, amputated the remaining damaged portion of her leg and gave her a forever home.
Finally the house is also home to a betta fish named “Red”.
