Dr. Kate Baer is a 2012 graduate from the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine. She completed a one-year internship with an equine referral and ambulatory practice in New Jersey, and then spent several years in Pennsylvania with a racetrack and ambulatory equine practice. In 2017, she attained certification in veterinary acupuncture through the Medical Acupuncture for Veterinarians. Dr. Baer joined MVS in 2019 and loves being a part of such a great team.
Dr. Baer appreciates the challenge and variety of equine ambulatory medicine. Her professional interests include geriatric horse care, dentistry, wound management, acupuncture, emergency medicine, and podiatry. Dr. Baer enjoys building relationships with clients and their horses, while working together to decide the best approach for each individual horse. She has also organized several educational seminars in the community for 4H, Westernaires, and Pony Club kids – previously in-person and now in an online format.
Outside of work, you will find Dr. Baer riding her off-the-track Thoroughbred, Liam, acquired during her days of racetrack practice in Pennsylvania. She hopes to return to the show ring this spring. She also takes full advantage of Colorado’s outdoor activities, including hiking, snowshoeing, rock climbing, mountain biking, and skiing. In rare moments of downtime, she also enjoys reading, foreign languages, cooking, and baking.
