Dr. Keaton Cuthbert was born and raised in Fairbanks, Alaska, by her parents, along with an older sister, and a younger brother. She received her bachelor’s degree in Biological Sciences from the University of Alaska, and it was during the last year of her undergraduate degree that she worked the graveyard shift part time as a veterinary technician at a local emergency vet hospital. It was there that Dr. Cuthbert got to truly see what the veterinary profession was all about. Caring for the animals, as well as fostering strong relationships with the clients, made her realize veterinary medicine was the perfect career for her.
Dr. Cuthbert moved to Portland, Oregon, after college and worked as a veterinary assistant in a small animal clinic for three years prior to pursuing her doctorate. She graduated in 2017 from Oregon State University in Corvallis, Oregon. Dr. Cuthbert has a special interest in rehabilitation for animals, including post-operative recovery, sports medicine, and physiotherapy. This special interest led her to complete a year long certificate program and become a Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner (CCRP) through the University of Tennessee. Dr. Cuthbert also enjoys dermatology and geriatric care.
Dr. Cuthbert and her husband, Loki, moved to Idaho in the summer of 2017 and have been enjoying the outdoor activities this area has to offer. They are avid backpackers and hikers and enjoy spending time in the foothills with their English Bulldog, Brixton, and their Australian Shepherd, Quinn.
