Dr. Kaija Platacis has been a part of our team since 2011. Graduating from Purdue University in 2007, Dr. Platacis (affectionately known as Dr. P) has continued to nurture her interest in surgery and dentistry and is now known as one of our “dental guru’s”. Being a part of Franklin Animal Clinic for Dr. P is really being a part of a true team. Working alongside others who are passionate about veterinary medicine and the clients who are passionate about their pets are a driving force for her. Our Franklin location is generally fast-paced and offers advanced treatment options and diagnostic plans for our patients, which is something that Dr. P really enjoys about working here.
As a child, Dr. Platacis began to harness her desire to help animals. As she grew, she found that she enjoyed teaching others. Veterinary medicine affords her the ability to do both! Having a goal to leave each day knowing that she made the best recommendations for her clients and patients shows in her work. Dr. P looks forward to establishing relationships with her clients and watching their fur-kids grow.
Outside of “work”, Dr. P enjoys any activity that allows her to spend time with her boys, reading and participating in a book club, and scrapbooking. Family and friends are important to Dr. P and, ultimately, spending time with them are a priority of hers.
Dr. P and her family have rescued 3 pets: 2 large dogs and 1 cat. Her oldest dog she adopted while in veterinary school!
