Joanne Belt, Staff Veterinarian

DVM

*Certified Fear Free Practitioner

Dr. Joanne Belt (previously Dr. Bauer) joined the practice in June 2017. Dr. Belt graduated from the Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2015, and spent the two years prior to joining Fairway Animal Hospital at a small animal practice in Johnson County. She is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior, and the American Animal Hospital Association.

Joanne always knew she wanted to be a veterinarian. In fact, her mother recalls her talking about being an “animal doctor” at the age of three after meeting a pony for the first time. She grew up in the Kansas City area and attended Brookwood Elementary where you can still find a book she authored in the library entitled “Equine Veterinarians.” Dr. Belt then attended Bishop Miege High School, the University of Kansas for one year, and Kansas State University to pursue a career in veterinary medicine.

Joanne has a special interest in animal behavior. She is currently working on making Fairway Animal Hospital a Fear Free Certified and a Cat Friendly Practice.

Joanne is thrilled to be in Kansas City and working at Fairway Animal Hospital. She lives in Shawnee with her two brown dogs, Harvey and Lucy. She has a long-time love of horses, and currently has a Paso Fino named Sophia who lives in Overland Park. Joanne married Tom Belt in October 2017 and had an outdoor ceremony where she keeps her horse. In her free time, Joanne loves spending time with friends and family, riding, traveling, and the outdoors.
