What Happened to Dr. Tom on Dr. K’s Exotic Vet.
‘Dr. K’s Exotic Animal ER’ show received a warm reception when it first aired. Everything seemed to be working until some of the staff started to air out complaints that potentially threatened the show’s life.
Some of the crews ended up leaving the show, and one notable face that went missing was the technician named Tom Cronenwett. According to his posts on social media, he walked away because of the mismanagement of the show (and the hospital) and also added that he moved to a new place where he could interact with dogs.
He also (allegedly) complained about the ego of the lead vet and lack of professionalism in the clinic. Working with Dr. K was just but a stepping stone in his career journey. A few months later, he posted another photo of him at his new workplace. He currently works as an assistant vet at Westgate Pet & Bird Hospital in Austin, Texas. We hope he will also have his TV show like his former colleague, Dr. T.
Who is Dr. K Vet’s husband?
Dr. K is a married woman. She is the wife of Greg Martin, a firefighter and paramedic. Other than his line of work, not much is known about Mr. Greg.
Fine details about their wedding, how long Dr. K and husband Greg have been married, and their past relationship. After spending the whole day saving human and exotic animals’ lives, Greg and Susan get back to their three cute kids, two daughters and one son named Claire, Elba, and Myles.
The birthday of the children is also unknown. The family of five is living a happy life in their home in Loxahatchee, Florida.

Dr. Susan Kelleher was born on 8th September 1968 in Buffalo, New York. She spent her early life in Chicago villages, where animals like ducks, snakes, chicken, and other birds were common. There are no details about her family members, including parents and siblings names.
Living among these animals built the foundation in her to care for them. Dr. K is currently 51 years old, and her birth sign is Virgo. About her education, she attended West Seneca Senior High School, after which she volunteered at the Buffalo Zoo to start having the real experience in handling the animals.
She later furthered her study by joining Alfred University, where she majored in Biology and Chemistry, graduating in 1990. Later she graduated as a veterinary doctor from the University of Tenessee, after which she established her own hospital.

Another source of her income is the show; she earns not less than 3000 dollars per episode that goes up to 20,000 dollars per year. Some people may argue that she would be a lot richer if she were treating cats and dogs, but Dr. K is delighted with her job and seems comfortable with her earning.
