Judith Kyle, DVM
It all started in my childhood. My parents allowed me a menagerie of cats, dogs, frogs, snakes, rabbits, chickens and horses. This love of animals continued into adulthood. I attended Oklahoma University for my undergraduate degree and finished my doctorate at Oklahoma State University in 1986,
I moved to Virginia that year and began working in Richmond. Over the next few years, I continued working in the Norfolk, Petersburg and Virginia Beach areas. In 2000, I bought Spotsylvania Animal Hospital. My areas of special interest are surgery, reproduction, exotic animal medicine and wildlife.
I have owned Gordon Setter dogs for almost 30 years. I have shown in conformation and obedience and hope to start hunting my most recent dog, Ella, soon. My other interests are gardening, horseback riding and reading.
