VCA Veterinary Medical Center

Ken Coldwell, DVM, Medical Director

DVM, Kansas State University


Dr. Coldwell has always been fascinated by the animal world. His parents would tell you that they knew even before he could talk that his life would revolve around animals. They were definitely correct. He spent 7 years, from age 12, volunteering and then working as a keeper at Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha, NE. His free time was and is spent hiking, caving, and scuba diving being out in nature. After graduating from veterinary school in 1997 his path led to Tulsa where he met his wife who is also a veterinarian. He has been at Veterinary Medical Center for over 10 years and feels fortunate to work with such a progressive, compassionate team.
