Kabita Deka, DVM

I started working at Bluebonnet once weekly at the end of 2015 and became full time at the beginning of 2017 after having the pleasure of working with such amazing people. I’m the only non Aggie in the building and went to veterinary school in Alabama.  After graduation I decided to move to Austin to start something new. I grew up in a small town in  North Louisiana where there was pretty much nothing to do except eat good southern food. My main interest in veterinary medicine are surgery and internal medicine. On my free time I enjoy running, most outdoor sport activities, traveling, eating, spending time with friends/family, and of course being with my main squeeze the chocolate lab Cosby and my handsome meow meow Romeo:)
