Dr. Plahn joined All City Pet Care West in June of 2006 after graduating from Iowa State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine in Ames, IA. She enjoys the everyday challenges and unpredictability that general small animal practice provides. She strives each and every day to provide high-quality medicine and to stay current on new and upcoming treatments and procedures for her patients. She also enjoys building caring and lasting relationships with her clients and their pets and often considers them as extended family. She is currently a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association and the South Dakota Veterinary Medical Association.
She grew up on a farm outside of Canton, SD. It was there that she developed a strong passion and love for animals of all sizes. She could often be found outside helping her dad and the local veterinarians tend to the many cows, calves, dogs, cats, and chickens on the farm.
She and her husband Brian, live in Harrisburg with their three children: Kaylee, Kiana, and Kamden. Other beloved family members include Valek- a loving miniature golden doodle, Bella- a beautiful white domestic short-haired cat with one blue and one yellow eye, and Souci- a mischievous dilute calico domestic short-haired cat. When she is not working, she enjoys spending time with her family, watching her kids play various sports and attending their music events as well as traveling, skiing (snow and water), reading and weight lifting/conditioning, and listening to music.
