Dr. Kristi Tipton joined our MVS family in 2019. Originally from Greene County, TN, she grew up on a small family farm where her love of animals began. Dr. Tipton graduated from East Tennessee State University with a degree in Biology, and a minor in Art. She received her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine Cum Laude from Tuskegee University School of Veterinary Medicine (Tuskegee, AL).
Dr. Tipton has many years of experience in veterinary care, in both Asheville, NC and here in the Tampa Bay area. She is currently in the process of obtaining certification in Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) for small animal acupuncture and holistic therapy.
Her primary interests in veterinary medicine include preventative medicine, geriatric care, and acupuncture. Dr. Tipton is focused on the benefits of in-home veterinary that enable pet parents to provide the best quality and least stressful care for their beloved pets. She believes getting a clear picture of each pet’s lifestyle and home environment leads to the best recommendation for their health.
She enjoys many outdoor hobbies, including hiking, birdwatching, photography, and gardening. At home she loves spending time with family, including her two miniature dachshunds: Jayden and new addition Finley.
