Practicing Since: 2007
Education: University of Glascow
Dr. Karin Connor grew up and went to school here in Livermore. Her Grandfather was a veterinarian in southern California and she was happy to be taught at a young age how to give medications and give injections to her own pets under his supervision. She even got to watch her first dog get neutered! She grew up with dogs, cats, rats, and her horse and cannot remember a time when she did not want to be a vet too.
After attending Granada High School she went for her undergraduate at U.C. Berkeley and completed her junior year abroad in Glasgow, Scotland. She was accepted into the Veterinary School at the University of Glasgow for the following year where she completed her BVMS (the Scottish veterinary degree). She has fond memories of her placements in Scotland- her first spay was a West Highland White Terrier in the West Highlands and de-horning Highland calves on small remote islands off the coast of Scotland. During her 6 years living in Scotland she met her husband, Christopher, and when she graduated in 2007 they moved back to California.
She loves spending time with her husband and their 2 young children.
At home she is surrounded by her pets; the cats-“Bonnie” and “Clyde” and “Spike” all DSH tabbys. As well as the dogs-“Mackintosh”- a Malti-poo, “Tim”- a Chihuahua, and “Dave”- a Labradoodle- all rescues.
In her spare time she loves watching Mystery TV shows and reading.
