  • Dr.
    Emily Whitehouse

    Dr. Emily has wanted to be a veterinarian since the 3rd grade, after her dad mentioned that she was pretty good with the family pets.  She worked at veterinary clinics throughout her high school weekends in Ohio, before attending The Ohio State University for her undergraduate and veterinary school degrees.  She moved to Southwestern Iowa in 2008 with her now-husband to practice mixed animal medicine.  After 4 years, she headed into town to a predominately small animal clinic.  She's decided to start her own practice in Omaha after seven years, and she is SO excited to care for you and your pets!  Dr. Emily and her husband have 2 dogs, 3 indoor cats, a bunch of barn cats (more show up every day, right?), and some chickens on their acreage.  In her free time (ha!), she loves to garden/landscape (native plants only, please), read voraciously, prep for the apocalypse, and build furniture as a novice.

  • Kali Upton
    Veterinary Assistant

    Kali has worked in the animal healthcare field for the past 6 years.  She loves helping and caring for animals.  From a young age, she knew this is the industry she wanted to be in.  Even her parents knew from a young age how much Kali loved animals.  When she was 10 years old, she started bringing home stray and injured animals, including cats, dogs, rats, birds, squirrels, and so many others.  She went as far as finding a toad, keeping him, and naming him Fireball, much to her mom's dismay.  As she grew up, her affinity for animals blossomed.  As a mother of four beautiful children, there is never a dull moment in her daily routine.  Her husband has always said that they will have a farm with animals to tend to; chickens, ducks, dogs, cats, and even pigs have run through their home for care.  During her free time, her passion is playing with her young ones and pets, and spending time with her family and close friends.
