About Us

Kristin Spear

Dr. Kristin (Kanoy) Spear is the owner of Paws at Home: Home Health Care for Pets. Dr. Kristin was born and raised in Quincy, Illinois. After graduating from Quincy High School and the University of Iowa, she completed her veterinary degree at the University of Illinois in 2000.

Dr. Kristin’s primary goal is to provide personalized care to pets and their families. She is able to facilitate this by bringing veterinary care to one’s home, which reduces anxiety and stress on all the members of the household. As Dr. Kristin expressed in her own words: “My hope is to improve the lives of animals in our area by providing veterinary medical care in the safety and comfort of their own homes. By reducing stress on both the pet and the owners, we can truly evaluate the health and well-being of the whole family.”

Dr.Kristin is a volunteer at Horizons Social Services where she helps in the food pantry and soup kitchen.

Dr. Kristin and her husband, Will, reside in Quincy and share their home with a sweet German short-haired pointer and a lovable cat.
