Dr. Katie Hom

Dr. Katie Hom

DVM

Dr. Katie is originally from Duluth, MN and graduated from the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine.  She began practicing small animal medicine in the Brainerd Lakes area in a practice that also operated a wildlife rehabilitation program. Labradors to loons, beagles to badgers; all helped to develop a broad application of medicine across many species.

She continued to practice part-time while raising her three children in Ashland, WI and eventually moved with them to Eagle River in 2009. Five years later, she became owner of the Eagle River Animal Hospital. Her clinical interests include acupuncture and animal behavior to further support health and well-being in her patients.

She lives and fills her spare time on a hobby farm where she can enjoy her two horses and two cats. One day she will find time to return to quilting, reading and gardening, but not yet.

Dr. Mary Camp

Dr. Mary Camp

DVM

Dr. Mary grew up in St. Germain, WI, with her 6 siblings and parents. She attended Northland Pines, where she met her middle school sweetheart, Dr. Brad Camp, a local dentist. After graduating veterinary school from the University of Wisconsin in 2013, they moved back home to the Northwoods. Dr. Mary has two rambunctious young boys (Nicholas and Colin), two oversized lap dogs (Lambeau and Lilo), two barn cats (Shere Khan and Her-meow-ne), and a small flock of layer chickens.

In her free time, Dr. Mary enjoys spending time with her family and friends. She loves being outdoors, hiking, swimming and camping in the summer, then cross country skiing and sledding in the winter. She has been lucky to join a sand volleyball league during the summers as another way to stay active in the beautiful Northwoods. Most days she explores her own backyard with her family and pets. When she gets a few free minutes to herself, Dr. Mary enjoys reading. She is happy that both of her boys have taken after her love of books, and she is already introducing Nicholas to the world of Harry Potter.

Dr. Mary began her career shadowing and then working for Dr. Dan Paretsky at the Eagle River Animal Hospital before attending college. With a little push from those around her, she ultimately decided to become a veterinarian herself. Her favorite part of veterinary medicine is getting to know her clients and hearing the stories they share with their furry family members. She has a special interest in dermatology, basic soft tissue surgery, and ultrasonography. Dr. Mary has recently begun expanding her skills with ultrasound and looks forward to developing in this area of medicine. She enjoys the challenge of difficult cases, learning more with every case so that she can best help her future patients live long and healthy lives. Dr. Mary has been a veterinarian at the Eagle River Animal Hospital since June 2014.

Sophia S.

Sophia S.

Kennel Assistant

Moving to Eagle River was a big opportunity for me not to miss. With a swing and a home run hit, my ball landed at the Eagle River Animal Hospital. I very much like animals myself, considering I have two beautiful cats and a few spoiled reptiles that live rent-free at my home. I also reside with my boyfriend that I’ve been with since my sophomore year in high school, hoping he will take my hand in marriage one day. I enjoy every moment working at the animal hospital and is ready to learn new things thrown at me. I hope to soon climb up the ladder and soon become a proud vet for Eagle River Animal Hospital.
