Dr. Katie

Owner & Veterinarian 

Dr. Katie Stender is a graduate of the University of Florida, for both her undergraduate studies, and her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine.  After graduating, she worked in a traditional vet clinic while also working with a group of veterinarians providing in-home euthanasia.  It quickly became clear what her calling was, and she started exclusively practicing in-home end of life care. For years she has proudly served Jacksonville and the surrounding community, helping thousands of families, learning and growing. After the birth of her second son, Dr. Katie knew it was time to start her own practice. 


Dr. Katie loves spending time with her family. Her favorite day would be a day doing anything with her husband and two sons. She has two senior cats, and understands the difficulties of owning senior pets. She loves doing house projects, hiking adventures in the mountains, trying new restaurants, sailing, and watching a good TV show after a long day. 


Dr. Katie is so grateful to be able to continue the work she loves, sharing what she believes to be the most sacred space, as a family parts with their pet, in the comfort of their home. It is with great care that she performs this service for our pets and couldn’t imagine doing anything else.
