Dr. Kate Byrne
Dr. Kate Byrne (aka Dr. Kate) is a founding partner of Ohana Pet Hospital.
A native of New Jersey, Dr. Kate completed her veterinary studies at the University of Minnesota in 2009. She then moved to Ventura to complete a year long rotating small animal internship at Veterinary Medical and Surgical Group (VMSG). From there, Dr. Kate began working in a local small animal general practice, where she met Dr. Jan, Dr. Jill and Dr. Nicci. By December 2012, the four veterinarians had opened Ohana Pet Hospital.
Dr. Kate is an active board member of the Santa Barbara-Ventura Veterinary Medical Association and joins her Ohana colleagues in supporting the effort of working with the local animal community in making Ventura County a 100% No-Kill county.
When Dr. Kate is not listening to her “talkative” cat, Zoe, she’s often found enjoying the outdoor activities provided by Southern California’s beautiful climate, including swimming with the other “early birds” of the local masters swim team.
