New Smile at Keota Veterinary Clinic

KVC's recent Texas A & M graduate Dr. Curtis Korthanke

Keota – There’s a new friendly face to greet your furry friends at the Keota Veterinary Clinic. Dr. Curtis Korthanke, originally from Yates Center, KS, joined the Keota Vet family after graduating last May from Texas A & M University.

         Studying animal medicine was Korthanke’s second career. Before that he built custom homes as a contractor. Although he enjoyed the work, the economy and the wear and tear on his body soon had him searching for options. Realizing a career change was necessary, Korthanke followed his interest in equine to veterinary school. Interest in equine first got him on the path to animal science, but the more time he spent in school, the wider his love for animals became.

“I really enjoy them all. I have always liked equine. That’s what got me headed this direction, but once I got into it at Texas A & M I really enjoyed the cattle and the small animals too,” Korthanke said.

         This is why landing in Keota is perfect for him. Here he gets to experience everything from domestic fluffernutters, to cattle, and no doubt a horse or two.
