Dr. Kari Mundschenk

At-Large Director

Dr. Mundschenk graduated from Washington State University and is certified as a diplomate by the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners specializing in feline practice. Her career experience includes 16 years in mixed- and small-animal practice, followed by 10 years of feline-exclusive practice. She is a past director of the American Association of Feline Practitioners and is coauthor of the 2014 AAFP Feline Inappropriate Elimination Guidelines. She serves as a Scientific Advisor on the EveryCat Foundation grant review committee. Though she enjoys learning and teaching about all species, her special interest is feline internal medicine, particularly hyperthyroidism, renal disease, oncology, and the role stress plays in the expression of behavior and disease.

Dr, Mundschenk currently serves as the Professional Service Veterinarian for the Southwest region for IDEXX. In addition, she is aligned with the feline, microbiology and chem-endo product teams and assists with the development of the PSV curriculum.

When she is not working, you can find Dr. Mundschenk at home in Arizona with her husband, two dogs, two cats, a horse and a mule. She loves outdoor activites, gardening, scuba diving and trail running.
