we would like to introduce you to Dr. Karlin Erk of CARES in Langhorn, PA

Dr. Karlin Erk

How long have you been at Pet Partners for, and what is your role?

7 years, Emergency and critical care doctor at CARES

If you weren’t in your current position, what would you be doing?

That’s a hard question! If I didn’t have to work, I might be doing wildlife rehab. Or just an outdoor junkie!

 What are some of your favorite hobbies?

Running, biking, anything on the water, playing with my three boys.

What is your favorite holiday?

Valentine’s Day

Favorite place to spend spare time?

In a boat!

Favorite quote?

oh boy. It’s a long one… by Teddy Roosevelt:

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

Do you have a secret talent?

hmmm, nothing I can think of. Though I have fixed quite a few broken turtle shells in my day.

Favorite type of music?

I don’t listen to music!  I like quiet (I know, I know!)

Dog or cat?

Dogs only! My mother is a crazy cat lady and I can’t stand it.

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?

Hawaii seems nice, but I would need to travel. Fall in the northeast is sublime.  Love the northwest too (Vancouver Island…)

About us

While other group practices promote a one size fits all approach, a Pet Partners’ veterinary hospital is encouraged to retain their unique personal style. We work with practices to remove roadblocks and enable them to reach goals they never thought possible.
