Meet the friendly staff at Shelley Drive Animal Clinic!

Kathy Carlson, DVM

As a kid growing up in rural Kansas, I always had an assortment of livestock and pets, all much to my mother's dismay. I started working in a local veterinary practice when I was 17 and have worked in one ever since. After graduating from Kansas State University in 1984, I followed my husband, Dr. Jon Carlson, to Texas and was very fortunate to be able to come to work in Tyler with Dr. Arnold and Dr. Maris in February of 1986, where I have stayed and been able to develop my special interest in feline medicine.

When I am not working, I enjoy my horses, my French bulldogs, and my old cat, going to movies and watching K-State football and Cardinals baseball.

Years in Practice: 32

Education: Kansas State University
