About Dr. Gittings
Dr. Kensey Gittings attended undergrad at Berry College in Rome, Georgia and then attended the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Gittings first vet job was as a kennel technician when she was 14 years old at Cleveland Park Animal Hospital in Greenville, SC.
Dr. Gittings knew she wanted to be a veterinarian since she was 6 years old when her and her mom rescued a very malnourished horse named Cricket from a horrible hoarding situation. After months of working with the vet to get her in a good place again, she realized what an impact they had on Cricket. Since then, she has always wanted to help animals and be their voice.
Dr. Gittings favorite case from when she was in vet school was when she had a legitimate wolf hybrid dog (called a Czechoslovakian Wolfdog) that was hospitalized and treated for idiopathic pleural effusion. He had a chest tube for several weeks and every day, part of his treatments was to remove the fluid from his chest. He was the sweetest dog and a total angel to work with, but because he was a wolf hybrid, the vet team had to fully enclose his run or else he could jump over the 6-foot walls. He went home cured after several weeks of hospitalization!
Outside of work, Dr. Gittings enjoys spending time with her husband Ian, and together they have two Catahoulas Summer and Gracie and a cat named Maple. She loves to go on hikes, camp, kayak, read, work out and explore restaurants and breweries around the Raleigh area.
