Katherine Miller, D.V.M.

Practice Owner

Dr. Kathy Miller was born and raised on the Palouse and is very happy to have her family here! She completed her undergraduate career at the University of Idaho and graduated from Washington State University for Veterinary Medicine in 2002. She did move south to attend school but returned for her husband’s job.

Dr. Miller really enjoys the small town feel of Moscow and Pullman with the strong influence from the universities. She, her husband Jim, and their four children (Zachary, Sydney, Nathaniel, and Brianna) love the plethora of outdoor activities available on the Palouse.

The greatest influence in Dr. Miller’s career would be Dr. & Mrs. Kubasch, who she purchased the practice from!

Spencer was found on Spence Road in Moscow by a former PAWS employee. He enjoys taking long leisurely naps in Dr. Miller’s office. His favorite part of the day is when the Fed Ex driver stops by. Spencer sits by the door about the same time every day waiting for a treat from the Fed Ex driver!
