Khristen Carlson, Residency Trained in Small Animal Internal Medicine

DVM, MS

Dr. Khristen Carlson completed her post-doctorate Small Animal Internal Medicine residency at Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine. She uses this specialty training to diagnosis and treat complicated and chronic diseases of dogs and cats such as diabetes, diseases of the kidney, lungs, heart, liver, and intestines, as well as immune mediated and infectious diseases. Her goal is to use her advanced medical training to offer the most up to date veterinary medical therapy while building lasting relationships with her clients.

In addition to clinical practice, Dr. Carlson also enjoys teaching veterinary students. During her time at Auburn, Dr. Carlson taught multiple classes of veterinary students while earning an additional Master's Degree in Biomedical Sciences. She continues to be a frequent lecturer and mentor to the veterinary students at her alma matter, Tuskegee University School of Veterinary Medicine.

Dr. Carlson is the founder of The Montgomery Food for Kids Backpack Program, an organization that provides weekend food for students in the Montgomery Public School system that have displayed signs of hunger while at school. She and her husband have called Montgomery home for the past 20 years. They have three very active children; twin, teenage daughters, and a 10-year-old son. The family also shares their home with two cats, two dogs, 6 chickens and the occasional squirrel in the fireplace.
