Dr Katie Eick, Founder and CEO of Rockin Pets, Rollin Vets, is a 1998 Graduate of the Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine, where she graduated Summa Cum Laude and was the recipient of the Gentle Doctor award, given to the student who exhibited outstanding and compassionate patient care. Dr. Eick has practiced in Virginia, where she started and built a brick and mortar practice, Alabama where she did relief work, and finally Texas, where she worked in a no kill shelter in Austin before finally settling down in Houston in 2013. Having had the benefit of working in so many different aspects of veterinary medicine, Dr Eick saw a real need for at home vet care, whether it be for larger dogs that had difficulty loading into the car, for busy people with busy schedules, for people with multiple animals, or for CATS, who hate to ride in the car, and she recognized that this was a relatively difficult service for owners to find. So she decided to change that and in 2016 she launched her full service mobile veterinary practice, South By South Vets, now known as Rockin Pets, Rollin Vets, and she could not be happier!
'It is so amazing to be able to offer not only convenient service, but service with so much less stress for the pets!"
Dr. Eick lives in Houston, Texas, with her Fiance, Mike, and their dogs: Cooper, Raoul, Prego, Rocky and Flower, and their cats: Bob, Petunia and Felipe. When not in these crazy times she loves attending concerts and traveling, and during these times she is so thankful she chose Houston to be her home. She wasn't born in Texas but she got here as soon as she could!
