Kari Bohn, DVM
Dr. Kari Bohn grew up in Ramona, CA in a boisterous household full of animals and foreign exchange students. She was a member of the United States Pony Clubs Assoc. from a young age and her love of horses and riding followed her into adulthood. She spent her Junior year of high school living abroad in Madrid, Spain where she became fluent in Spanish. She graduated Cum Laude from UC San Diego with a B.S. in Ecology, Animal Behavior, and Evolution.
Dr. Bohn graduated with honors from the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine in 2006. While at Davis she completed an internship in veterinary pathology at the San Diego Zoo, was awarded the Cordy Prize in Veterinary Pathology, and spent a summer in Argentina researching Leptospirosis in cattle as a recipient of the Geraldine R Dodge Foundation “Frontiers in Veterinary Medicine” grant.
After graduation, Dr. Bohn worked in a large, AAHA-accredited 24-hour mixed animal practice in the Sierra Foothills. In 2009 she transitioned to primarily small animal practice. Since then she has practiced in Northern and Southern California as well as Baltimore, MD. Her areas of special interest include abdominal ultrasound, internal medicine, and geriatrics. Dr. Bohn lives in Vista with her husband Ben, their 3-year-old daughter Ferris, and their two cats “L.B.' (Lover Boy) and “Kitty Kitty Meow Meows”. Outside of work, she enjoys cycling, hiking, the beach, and international travel.
