Kristin Ray, DVM joined our practice in April 2020. Dr. Ray, a native of Hastings, Michigan (Barry County), obtained her undergraduate degree in Animal Science from Cornell University. She then went to the Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine where she received her veterinary training and obtained her DVM. Since then she has practiced small animal medicine and surgery in Illinois and Michigan and also spent several years as a public health veterinarian for the USDA.

Dr. Ray has a passion for “One Health”, behavior medicine, client education and quality care. She is excited about joining our team. Her addition will help us provide service to more pets and people here at Hickory Ridge Veterinary Service, P.C.

Dr. Ray’s family includes her husband, their two daughters and their four cats. She enjoys historical reenactments, taking her daughters to museums and participating in curling.

We are so glad that Dr. Ray is coming back home to Barry County. Please welcome her with open arms… or maybe for now a friendly hello from six feet or so… or if you’re really brave, an elbow bump!
