About Dr. Gittings

Dr. Kensey Gittings attended undergrad at Berry College in Rome, Georgia. Then she attended the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine. Her 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.  She and her mom rescued a very malnourished horse named Cricket from a horrible hoarding situation. A vet worked for months to get Cricket in a healthy place again while Dr. Gittings did everything she could to assist. Doing so, she realized what an impact they had on this precious horse. Since then, she has always wanted to help animals and to be their voice. 

One of Dr. Gittings favorite case is 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. 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. After several weeks of hospitalization he was cleared to go home. 

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. Together they love to go on hikes, camp,  kayak, read, work out and explore restaurants and breweries around the Triangle.
