Dr. Kelsey Pruitt grew up on a farm in Statesboro, Georgia, tending to the livestock and family pets. She knew early-on that she would like to make a profession out of helping animals, and so her trek began! After graduating from the University of Georgia with a Bachelor’s Degree in Animal Science, she decided to pursue a Master’s Degree in Animal and Dairy Science. She continued at the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine to graduate as a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine.
Upon graduating, Dr. Pruitt returned to her hometown and began to practice conventional medicine in a predominantly small animal clinic, with a minor percentage concentrated on cattle and horses. She always longed to integrate traditional and alternative medicine, and truly believes that integrating both forms of veterinary care is the most effective way to help and heal your four-legged furry friends! With this belief, she decided to obtain her small and large animal certification in scientific-based acupuncture through Medical Acupuncture for Veterinarians in Colorado.
Dr. Pruitt’s interests in physical fitness and nutrition are not limited to veterinary medicine, but carry over into her personal life. She enjoys running, weight lifting, yoga, traveling adventures, hiking, and the outdoors. When at all possible, she loves to be in the presence of water, sunshine, and her dog-child, Marley.
