Dr. Katherine Settle



Dr. Katherine Settle, received a B.S. from the University of North Carolina (GO HEELS) and graduated from the College of Veterinary Medicine at The Ohio State University (GO BUCS) in 1978.   In 1980, Dr. Katherine and her husband came to Sanford, NC and took over the hospital started and originally built by Dr. Katherine’s father, Dr. Bill Settle.  They still practice at Sanford Animal Hospital and All Animals Animal Hospital in Sanford, N.C.

Dr. Settle has been active in greyhound rescue and adoption, and has owned track and show greyhounds and UKC/AKC Black and Tan Coonhounds.  She has participated in conformation, obedience, and performance events.  She has trained dogs through Utility Obedience.  Under the kennel name, Designer Hounds, her breeding program has produced two Black and Tan #1 Breed point dogs, National and Regional Specialty winners, a Best in Show, and the sire of the top coonhound in the history of the breed.  She is currently working with “Stanley” in agility.                   

Dr. Settle has had a passion for canine reproduction since 1982.  As a member of the Society of Theriogenology (the study of animal reproduction) she regularly attends annual meetings and workshops. 


Dr. Katherine Settle enjoys working with breeders through assisted breeding techniques such as artificial inseminations, transcervical inseminatons, and surgical inseminations.  On the male side, she collects, evaluates, freezes, ships, stores canine semen, and prepares chilled semen for shipping.  Dr. Settle works with dog and bitch infertility problems, pregnancy diagnosis and management, and planned cesarean sections.
