Mobile practice a fit for veternarian

By Kylene Scott

For Quinley Koch it wasn't until after she received her masters degree from Texas A&M University that she realized her desire to become a veterinarian. Koch now owns and operates Elite Equine, a mobile veterinary practice based out of the Wichita, Kan., area.

"I wanted to be a vet when I was younger then decided when I went to college I didn't want to be a vet anymore," Koch said. "I went to Texas A&M and got a masters in animal science, equine science and then decided I wanted to be a vet. So I went to vet school after that."

Koch attended vet school at Oklahoma State University but got her animal science bachelor's degree at Fort Hays State University in Hays, Kan., where she competed on the rodeo team. She also started a master's degree at FHSU before going to Texas A&M.

"There was so many things that I learned about (at Texas A&M) that I couldn't treat anything without being a vet," she said. "I couldn't diagnose and treat things, and I had learned so much about exercise physiology and nutrition that I decided I wanted to be able to treat the athletes."
