Dr. Janet is a native of Ponce, Puerto Rico. She moved to Kansas in 1982 in order to pursue her childhood dream of becoming a veterinarian. Dr. Janet received her B.S. in 1982 and by 1984 graduated at the top of her class with an M.S. in Pathology and her D.V.M from Kansas State University.

Avery Gottwalt, DVM
Dr. Avery Gottwalt grew up in High Point, North Carolina with a love of animals instilled in her from an early age. With her mother and father both being veterinarians, there was never a shortage of puppies to play with and wildlife to help. From possums and flying squirrels to ducklings and turtles, she inherited her parents’ compassion and curiosity for all creatures.
Her love of animals evolved into a passion for veterinary medicine in high school, as she worked more closely with her parents on cases. She then pursued her undergraduate degree at Clemson University in Animal and Veterinary Sciences. It was here that her love for cattle grew, and she showed Brown Swiss heifers for the 3 years that she was there. Her days there were filled with swimming in the lake, cuddling with cows, and of course, Clemson Football. She continued to spend her summers working with her parents, both widening her knowledge base and growing her passion for small animal medicine.
She then attended NC State College of Veterinary Medicine where she completed her doctorate of veterinary medicine in 2020. Her clinical interests include dermatology, preventative medicine, and geriatric care, which she is thrilled to continue as a member of Adams Farm Animal Hospital.
When not at work, Dr. Gottwalt enjoys running, backpacking, travelling, and spending time with her husband, Brian, and cat, Liesel.
