Dr. Kathleen Aicher received her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine. She completed a rotating internship at the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Internal Medicine and a small animal internal medicine residency at the North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine.
Dr. Aicher worked in a veterinary gastroenterology research and diagnostic laboratory prior to vet school which fostered an interest in GI disease. She continues to be active in ongoing research into gallbladder mucocele syndrome which is an emergent and increasing common problem in dogs
I became a specialist as I really enjoyed putting the puzzle pieces together of a complicated medical case. An added bonus of being an internist is that we get to be involved in the follow up of many of our patients and develop close relationships with their families and primary care veterinarians.
