Katie Matzke, DVM

Rover Veterinary Care has been serving families of Reno, Nevada since 2020. Our house call veterinary services are provided by Dr. Katie Matzke. 

Katie was born and raised in Jupiter, Florida. She attended the University of Florida for both undergraduate and veterinary school, graduating from the UF College of Veterinary Medicine in 2013. Katie and husband Josh with their two big dogs, Kahlua & Pazza, moved to Reno, Nevada upon Katie's graduation from veterinary school.

Katie has found her niche working as a shelter veterinarian with Nevada Humane Society since 2013. She loves the ability to give comfort and high quality veterinary care to homeless pets. She has seen first hand the need in the community for home euthanasia services, which led to the creation of Rover Veterinary Care.

Since moving to Reno, Katie and Josh have expanded their family significantly with the addition of a few two legged children - Emy, Thomas, and Patrick. Outside of work, Katie's favorite activity is running, frequently with her four and two legged companions. Katie also loves reading and spending time at the river and the lake with her family.
