Antoinette Knox was born and raised in the Germantown section of Philadelphia. She has always had an affinity for all animals and her mother often tells her stories of how she would cause small heart attacks when she was little due to letting go of her mom’s hand in order to run to any animal she saw to make her new friend.
After noticing her curiosity and love for animals, her mom explained to her that there were actual doctors for animals! From that point on, her goal was crystal clear: become a veterinarian. Antoinette would later attended Tuskegee University to study Animal Science and continued on to Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine where she obtained her Veterinary Degree. Upon graduation, she immediately returned to Philadelphia, the city she loves, for the start of her Veterinary Career.
Antoinette’s interests include Shelter medicine, Feline Medicine, Pathology, and the Human-Animal Bond. She has had numerous pets during her lifetime, so she appreciates and fully values the strong bond that we create with the pets we care for and share our lives with.
When Antoinette is not practicing medicine, she is often spending time with family, reading, and crafting. She is also a mom to a bright, energetic gentleman and five fur babies – Eden, King, Autumn, Hamish, and Velcro.
