About

Our Practice

Watson Vet was started to provide care for Bloomington pets in the familiar surroundings of home. We provide most services normally offered at a veterinary clinic, including vaccinations, laboratory pathology, nutrition counseling, geriatric and pediatric care, medical evaluations, and medical case management.

We prioritize a high standard of care for every patient and aim for veterinary visits to be comfortable for pets and their families. Our staff understands that pets are important family members and involve owners in all aspects of care. We support Fear-Free practice and Dr. Watson is a certified Human-Animal Bond veterinarian.

For those pets with more serious problems requiring hospitalization or specialty care, we typically refer to Indianapolis or West Lafayette (Purdue). We are also always happy to collaborate with hospital-based veterinarians to deliver continuity of care.

Covid-19 Precautions: For the safety of our team and clients, we require that owners wear masks during housecalls. Please let us know, before a housecall, if you or someone in your home may have been exposed to someone with Covid-19 during the past 14 days. Our entire team is vaccinated and we wear masks to all visits. We are currently seeing most pets outside. Once a large proportion of our population is vaccinated and the risk of new variants decreases, we hope to adjust these precautions.

Katharine Watson 

Veterinarian

Dr. Watson grew up in Bloomington, IN where her family had a wonderful housecall veterinarian. Observing how much her family's pets enjoyed their veterinary visits prompted Dr. Watson to start seeing her own housecall patients. 

 

Dr. Watson received her BA from Purdue, MA from University of California, Santa Barbara, and her veterinary doctorate from Murdoch University in Western Australia. During her 13 years in Australia, Dr. Watson was, mainly, an emergency and critical care veterinarian in a large specialty hospital. She was also fortunate to work with wildlife and exotic species.

When not seeing patients, Dr. Watson is working on her PhD in epidemiology wherein her research focus is the gut microbiome. She also runs marathons, enjoys outdoor sports, plays piano, and caters to her pets' whims.
