She continued her education at the University of Wisconsin, School of Veterinary Medicine and was awarded her DVM degree in 2006. Dr. Knutson's professional interests include surgery and dermatology.
This past summer, Dr. Knutson completed 14 hours of continuing education through the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine, focusing on oncology and internal medicine. The courses explored various topics in oncology, including round cell tumors, various carcinomas, and sarcomas.

In November of 2009 Dr. Beth and her husband Travis were blessed with a wonderful baby boy named Christopher, who has now replaced many of Dr. Beth's leisure time activities. She enjoys swimming, fishing, camping, going to UW hockey games and watching Brewers and Packers games. She and her family share their home with a cat named Lucy.
