Meet Dr. Kenneth Judson

After graduating from Kansas State University, I attended the School of Veterinary Medicine at Tuskegee University where I received my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree.

In 1976, I opened my own animal hospital in Manchester, Connecticut where I treated dogs, cats, and horses.  In 2007, I sold my hospital and moved with my wife Carla and two daughters, Natalee and Kathryn to Florida.  It was in Tampa, Florida that the family built and operated a luxury, state of the art, boarding kennel.  On weekends I was able to provide low cost vaccination clinics, which helped improve the health and well being of pets in our local community.   Eight years later, the family decided to sell our kennel since our girls were well on their way to being independent young women.   Carla and I looked far and wide for a wonderful place we could call home along with our dogs and horses.  We decided Aiken, South Carolina would be our new forever home.  We both enjoy Aiken and the beautiful state of South Carolina.

 

After obtaining my South Carolina veterinary license, I joined the Care-a-Van program at Pawmetto Lifeline in Columbia, SC.  This program fosters animal health and prevention through preventative vaccination programs and heartworm testing in the Columbia area, as well as surrounding counties in the mid-state area of South Carolina.   I love traveling throughout the state and meeting residents and providing preventative veterinary care for their pets.

When not at work I can be found taking care of my own menagerie of animals on my farm with my wife Carla.  Together we own 8 horses, 2 Golden Retrievers, 1 English Lab, one cat and a goat named “Gabby.”  We are blessed with two daughters.  Kathryn is a recent law school graduate who will be working in Atlanta and Natalee is a first- year veterinary student at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, who hopes to follow in my footsteps.
