Dr. Emily Ruesch grew up in rural Missouri, often raising kittens and helping take care of cows on her parents’ cattle farm. She realized she was destined for veterinary medicine after college when she shadowed her uncle at his veterinary clinic. In May 2020, Dr. Emily graduated from the University of Missouri – College of Veterinary Medicine.
While working towards her degree in Veterinary medicine, Dr. Emily worked as a Veterinary Assistant, earning the nickname of “Cat Whisperer”. Over the years Dr. Emily has become interested in extending a pet’s life through good nutrition and helping all the itchy pets feel more comfortable. In her spare time, Dr. Emily and her husband love to spoil their 2 dogs, (Ruby and Juneau) and their 3 cats, (Claire, Kit, and Spike).
I am so happy to have found my passion in veterinary medicine, and now to be a part of Kruger Animal Hospital. I can’t wait to meet you and your precious fur babies! My goal is to answer any questions or concerns you may have about your furry family members so they can live long and healthy lives.
