About

Dr. Kirsten Stukey's journey in veterinary medicine began in her hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma. She pursued her undergraduate education at Oklahoma Baptist University, setting the foundation for her lifelong dream of becoming a veterinarian. Kirsten's dedication led her to Oklahoma State University, where she earned her DVM degree in 2016. After graduation, she embarked on her veterinary career, moving to Arlington, Texas, where she fell in love with the vibrant DFW community. Since then, she has continued to work and live in various areas of the DFW region. From a young age, Kirsten harbored a passion for veterinary care, a dream that took root when she was just four years old. During her veterinary schooling, she developed a profound interest in senior pets and end-of-life care. The profound bond between humans and their animals deeply resonated with her, and she found immense fulfillment in helping pet owners navigate the later stages of their beloved companions' lives. Kirsten's personal journey with her Westie, Maxie, strengthened her commitment to providing compassionate end-of-life care. She was Maxie's sole caregiver during her senior years and, as a veterinarian herself, had the privilege of saying a heartfelt goodbye to Maxie at home, surrounded by friends and in a place filled with cherished memories. Kirsten believes that every pet owner should have the opportunity to bid farewell to their furry family members in the comfort of their home, where they feel most at ease. Beyond her veterinary profession, Kirsten finds joy in spending quality time with her family and friends, maintaining an active lifestyle through regular workouts, and taking leisurely walks with her canine companion. She embraces the vibrant culinary scene in Dallas by exploring new restaurants and satisfies her wanderlust by planning trips to new destinations whenever possible. Her furry family member, Cash, a 9-year-old Aussie Mix, has been her loyal companion since their meeting in vet school. Kirsten and Cash share a special bond, and despite Cash's diagnosis of heart disease, Kirsten cherishes every moment they spend together, celebrating the extra time she has with her beloved furry friend.
