Vet on Ice

Kvitko-White, Founder and President of Missouri-based KW Veterinary Consulting, spoke with dvm360® to discuss his life as a “skating rink rat”. Growing up with a love of skating, Kvitko-White carried that passion with her into her adult life. Along with skating, she also started playing ice hockey with other vet classmates. These days, she continues to enjoy skating and playing ice hockey, with the hope that her love for the ice will rub off on her children.

Stewart, now a star of ‘The Street Vet’ TV show, noticed a homeless person with his pet as the California resident walked into a convenience store.

Now, over 5 years later, Stewart has started Project Street Vet and continues to help those in need.
