Dr. Kara Knight

Dr. Knight is a proud Floridian, having been born and raised in the Sunshine State. Her educational journey led her to the University of Florida, where she completed both her undergraduate and veterinary degrees.

Dr. Knight's passion for small mammals ignited during her junior year in college when she welcomed her very first pets into her life. These two rescue guinea pigs, Trixie and Bella, introduced her to the world of tiny and squeaky companions, sparking a lifelong fascination.

In addition to her dedication to small mammal medicine, she has a keen interest in teaching and excels in soft tissue surgery. At home, Dr. Knight is a loving fur mom to two lively cats, Persephone and Juno, and her guinea pig, affectionately known as Spike (or the Lemon). When not at work, you can find her tending to her garden, working on her second black belt, or immersing herself in the world of renaissance fairs.
