Dr Katrina Warren
MC with a passion for pets
Veterinarian Dr Katrina Warren is one of the best-loved and most recognised faces in Australia.
Since first appearing on our television screens in 1994 as a presenter on the Ten Network children’s show, Totally Wild, Dr Katrina has appealed to a wide audience. Indeed, animal lovers of all ages relate to her because she is down to earth, very personable and genuinely cares about their relationship with their pets.
During her seven years as co-host of Seven Network’s hugely successful Harry’s Practice, she became a household name for promoting responsible pet ownership and animal welfare. Dr Katrina has also hosted Beverly Hills Vet and three series of Housecat Housecall for Animal Planet, USA.
Katrina is passionate about helping people enhance the special bond that is shared with pets, whether it be choosing the right pet for their lifestyle, solving behavioural issues or providing basic health advice.
She regularly holds dog training talks and demonstrations with the very talented ‘Wonderdogs’ at both corporate and private events. Their high-energy shows engage and delight audiences at pet expos, council dog days, family days, vet clinic open days, school holiday entertainment and corporate events.
In 2012 Sodastream chose Katrina as the new face of the iconic carbonated system brand. And 2013 was another busy year for her when she featured in the Australian Woman’s Weekly Summer Special and Makeover Street (both Channel 9) alongside Jamie Durie, The Block’s Phil & Amity, Celebrity Cook Hayden Quinn and Fashion Stylist Donny Galella.
Dr Katrina is regularly engaged to appear at pet Shows, vet hospital open days and pet and animal expos. She is a monthly columnist for PETS Magazine, has written four books and her website www.drkatrina.com, launched in 2006, is one the most active pet information websites in Australia.
Katrina regularly appears across all media platforms – television, radio, print and online. She is resident vet on Nine Network’s Today Show and co-hosted 2GB’s weekly radio show, Talking Pets.
Katrina is an Ambassador for Assistance Dogs Australia, Animal Welfare League NSW, Animals Asia Foundation, National Breast Cancer Foundation and Lifeline Australia.
Katrina is frequently the first choice as host and speaker at any pet-related event and is a highly sought-after and accomplished MC for fashion shows, corporate functions and charity fundraisers. She previously hosted Carols in the Domain three years running.
