Dr. Kristin Caudy
VeterinarianDr. Caudy was born in Hinsdale, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. Growing up, she got to know the veterinarian her parents used, and they had several pets including a cat that lived to be 21 years old!
Dr. Caudy attended Miami University to obtain her Bachelor’s in Zoology. After graduation, she worked for Procter and Gamble. Over time, she began to feel unfulfilled and considered alternative professions. She ended up going back to veterinary school at Ohio State University to receive her DVM, eventually deciding to open her own hospital less than a mile away from her family’s house!
Surgery is a special area of interest for Dr. Caudy because it allows her to be meticulous and artistic at the same time. She also likes working with rescue groups to get neglected dogs back on the road to good health.
At home, Dr. Caudy lives with her husband and two children. They share their home with Golden Retriever, Cheez, and cats named HiYah and Violet. Her cat Poppet lives at Village Gate where she supervises the medical staff and causes general mayhem. The family also cares for two horses and one donkey.
Dr. Caudy says she spends most of her free time shuttling her kids around to various activities. When time allows, she enjoys gardening, reading fiction, and traveling with her family.
