Dr Kathryn Jenkins

BSc, BVSc, MVS, MANZCVS, Dip ACVP, Registered Specialist Veterinary Clinical Pathology

Hailing from England originally, Kathryn spent her school years in Auckland and Wellington. She completed her BVSc at Massey University in 2002, then spent several years in companion animal practice in New Zealand and started a family. She returned to Massey in 2011 to complete a residency in clinical pathology. After her residency was complete, Kathryn moved with her young family, to Australia in order to pursue further training, and successfully completed both Membership exams in pathology and American Board Certification in clinical pathology.

Kathryn especially enjoys all aspects of haematology and cytology of cats, dogs, small mammals, birds and exotic species.

After seven years abroad, Kathryn was very excited to return to New Zealand in 2019 and join the team at Awanui Veterinary. She is now settling back in Palmerston North and building a small backyard menagerie with her family.
