Dr. Mathew Korthauer
Dr. Korthauer grew up in rural Wisconsin riding along with his dad who was a dairy veterinarian. Inspired by this experience, he entered the veterinary field and graduated from UW Madison Veterinary School in 2011. Further, he completed an Emergency and Critical Care Internship at a three-hospital network in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and enjoyed the variety of cases that he saw while there.
Dr. Korthauer worked in emergency medicine for five years then moved to Boston, working at a busy day-practice. Fortunately for us, he moved to Vancouver in 2019 with his wife and their two kitties, Fuji and Juno. He and his wife recently welcomed a new baby daughter into their lives which they are very excited about.
He loves exploring the natural beauty of BC, and loves the mountains, the ocean and the lack of cold weather. In his spare time, which is not much these days, he enjoys cooking, cycling, camping and hiking. Dr. Korthauer finds the most fulfilling part of being a veterinarian is helping sick pets get better, especially with new and creative treatments.

Coming all the way from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Mallu was drawn to explore Canada 7 years ago and just couldn’t leave. With a background in Fine Arts and growing up surrounded by all kinds of animals, from scaley to fuzzy friends, she’s found her way into our clinic and is always excited to meet new patients. When she’s not working to help your little friends at the clinic, you can find Mallu taking photos, writing, looking for weird little trinkets to add to her collection or spending time with her two (very spoiled) cats Kyoto and Zuko.
