Kathryn Ambrose
Staff Veterinarian DVM
Dr. Ambrose is thrilled to move home to Michigan and join VCA Woodland Animal Hospital's incredible team! 

After graduating from MSU with a B.S. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (2006) and a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine (2010), Dr. Ambrose completed an internship at the University of Minnesota, where she greatly enjoyed practicing in the Emergency/Critical Care, Internal Medicine, and Small Animal Surgery departments while teaching veterinary students. 

Thereafter Dr. Ambrose joined VCA Animal Wellness Center of Maple Grove, MN and served as their Medical Director starting in 2016. She is certified in Fear Free and Low Stress Handling, approaches that provide patients with improved medical outcomes by prioritizing their emotional well-being in the clinic. Dr. Ambrose is also excited to share her special interests in internal medicine, ophthalmology, dentistry, and ultrasound with VCA Woodland patients.

Outside of the hospital, Dr. Ambrose can be found spending time with her family, sipping coffee, cooking, hiking, or reading -- she is always up for suggestions on a good book!
