Dr. Keith Placke, DVM
Dr. Placke brings 10 years of experience to Raintree Animal Health Center. A 2004 graduate of Kansas State University and current board member of the Kansas City Veterinary Medical Association, Dr. Placke brings a passion for medicine and surgery to the hospital. He puts a strong emphasis on quality nutrition and preventative care. Dr. Placke enjoys the challenges of medical cases and has a keen interest in soft tissue and orthopedic surgeries. When he isn’t taking care of patients, he enjoys watching Nebraska football, trout fishing, and spending time with his wife, Kim, and their two children Tagen (daughter) and Bennett (son).
Kim and Dr. Placke have been married since October 2008 and they met working at a clinic together in 2004. They opened the practice together soon after they got married. Kim has been a veterinary technician since 2001. She has worked at many different hospitals in both Missouri and Kansas. She brings many years of experience and schooling to the hospital. Her favorite thing about managing Raintree is keeping tabs on the interesting cases and watching pets get better. She enjoys her two dogs (Braskie and Husker), Chinchilla (Nemo), Cat (Aspen), Green-Cheeked Conure (Mango), 21 cattle out on her pasture, and spending time with her two children Tagen (daughter) and Bennett (son). She is also a member of the Kansas City Veterinary Managers Network (KCVMN).
