Heather Krohne, DVM, Associate Veterinarian

DVM, University of Missouri


Dr. Heather (Markway) Krohne was born in St. Louis, Missouri and attended the University of Missouri-Columbia for undergraduate and veterinary school.  She graduated from the University of Missouri‚Äôs College of Veterinary Medicine in 2006 and continued her education as a small animal intern at Mississippi State University before relocating to Atlanta in 2007. She began working at Buckhead Animal Hospital in August of 2007 and is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association.  Dr. Krohne recently married and now lives in Marietta with her husband, two boxers named Moxie and Murdock, a Maine Coon mix named Mr. Rosie, a flock of chickens and a tank of South American Discus fish.  In her free time, she enjoys reading, scuba diving and gardening. 

"Growing up in the Midwest, my family was always surrounded by furry family members - cats, dogs, horses, chickens, guinea pigs and hamsters.  There was never a doubt in my mind that I would become a veterinarian and care for these amazing creatures.  Every day, I get to meet different animals and people and experience the wonderful bond they share.  My "job" allows me to help care for pets, educate owners in prevention medicine, build relationships with clients, and work with many intelligent and caring people."
