Enchanted by the UAE and its opportunities, Katrin opened her own small animal clinic - the German Veterinary Clinic - in Abu Dhabi in 2008. The clinic grew from herself and 2 nurses to a team of over 20 in the space of 10 years and is the first ISFM Gold Standard Cat Friendly Clinic in the Middle East.

Katrin has a huge passion for Veterinary Behaviour Medicine and Animal Welfare and is currently in a residency program in Veterinary Behaviour Medicine with both the American as well as European Colleges of Animal Welfare and Behaviour Medicine. She hopes to take her board exams in 2023. 
Katrin feels strongly that the mental and emotional health of her patients is as important as their physical health.
