Dr. Kathleen Werden
Dr. Kathleen Werden has been in small animal general practice for over a decade, with specialization in dentistry, pain management, behavior, and internal medicine. She is passionate about management of complicated cases and finding creative solutions to difficult problems. Her goal is comfort and quality of care within the particular family situation. This is especially true with end of life care.
With a strong sense of community, Dr. Werden also started a cat rescue called The Cats At Longstreet that works with cats of all ages and stages, many of which need behavioral and/or emotional rehabilitation, to find loving, lifelong homes. This work has extended into feral cat trapping and spay/neuter programs, and assisting with the placement of the occasional special dog.
Clients appreciate her candor, insight, state-of-the-art medicine, and dedication to both constant improvement in self and in standards of care, as well as the well-being of the pet and client.
Dr. Werden loves spending time with her husband and two young children. Together, they travel, hike, and get into all sorts of trouble outside in the garden and on the farm. When Mommy and Daddy have adult time, they look forward to live music, excellent food and friends, and patronizing the local wineries and breweries.
At home, the house is full of fur, a bit of controlled chaos, some dirt ,and a menagerie including a senior Golden named Dixie (Dixie GAWDBLESSIT), a senior Beagle named Abby (Crabby), three young cats (Bean Bean StringBean, Penelope Mews, and T-Wrecks), and finally, three senior cats, Berlin the Terrorist (Bobo), Gibson (GibbyGibGibbs, or BadCat), and DejaBoo (DejaBOOTY), all of which have entirely interesting lives unto themselves. Gibby is so interesting, in fact, that he has his own Facebook website, Diary of a Bad Cat.
