Dr. Kathy Miller was born and raised on the Palouse and is very happy to have her family here! She completed her undergraduate career at the University of Idaho and graduated from Washington State University for Veterinary Medicine in 2002. She did move south to attend school, but returned for her husband's job.

Dr. Miller really enjoys the small town feel of Moscow and Pullman with the strong influence from the universities. She, her husband Jim, and their four children (Zachary, Sydney, Nathaniel, and Brianna) love the plethora of outdoor activities available on the Palouse.

The greatest influence in Dr. Miller's career would be Dr. & Mrs. Kubasch, who she purchased the practice from!

The staff at PAWS literally saved my dog's life! After struggling with a mystery illness for a week the Veterinarians at PAWS were able to figure out what was wrong with our dog and get him on the path to recovery. Dr. Miller and Dr. Mason were extremely knowledgeable, empathetic, and took the utmost care with Scout. We are incredibly thankful for the entire staff and all of their care and hard work.
