Katie Saemann, DVM

Dr Saemann grew up in Pittsford, New York, but spent a lot of time visiting the Upper Valley during her childhood. Though many of her family members practice human medicine, Dr. Saemann never considered being a "people doctor" - she has always loved animals and science and wanted to become an "animal doctor" instead. She worked as a kennel assistant in high school and college, and also worked milking cows for a summer. She received a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Cornell University in 2001, and in 2005 earned her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine at Cornell University's College of Veterinary Medicine.

Dr. Saemann joined Stoney Brook Veterinary Hospital in August, 2019. She is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association and the New Hampshire Veterinary Medical Association. Her veterinary interests include owner education and emergency medicine. She loves solving a complicated mystery to help a pet feel better. She gets a lot of satisfaction out of the relationships she gets to form with the people who come along with her patients.

Dr. Saemann has two daughters who keep her very busy outside of work, and well as a Golden Retriever named Bea and a cat named Max. She enjoys running, hiking, gardening, cooking, alpine skiing, and playing with her kids.
