My name is Kathy and I am on the management and ultrasound teams here at Care Vet Services. My husband and I moved to Millington in 2022 to start our own farm. We had just adopted a German Shepherd puppy and I was looking for a new vet. When I discovered that the doctors here have GSD experience I was sold! I came to Care as a client and stayed as a staff member. Outside of caring for your pets I like to: read, lay on the couch with our 4 dogs, and play in the yard. During the winter I hibernate with movies and in the summer we camp whenever possible. I look forward to seeing you and your pets at Care!



Kylee Assistant



Hello, I'm Kylee and I reside in Davison MI, I work as an assistant here at Care Veterinary. My love and passion for animals go as far back as to when I was a little girl, and my mom would ask me what I wanted to be when I grew up? I would say I wanted to be a veterinarian and I couldn't even pronounce the word properly. I am currently enrolled in Ashworth College to become a certified veterinary technician. I have 2 lovely fur babies of my own! One is an Australian shepherd named Luna and the other is a Springer named Lakota, and they are my whole world! In my eyes animals have the purest of souls and deserve to have the up most love and care at the highest quality possible, and to provide that is my mission in life!



Patience Receptionist



Hello! My name is Patience, and I’m one of the receptionists here at Care. I am married to my best friend and together we have two beautiful Australian Shepherds (Eros and Freyja), a fluffy cat whom I adopted when I started college (Pear), two chickens (Onyx and Amythyst), and two horses (Skyler and Atlas). My pets have always been the center of my world ever since I was a kid, especially my horses. I have been riding, showing, and training horses for as long as I can remember. When I’m not working with my horses I can usually be found behind a camera taking pictures, curled up with a good book, watching spooky movies, or hiking with my pups.
