paw Team Spotlight
Kristen Musgrave
DVM Medical Director

Dr. Musgrave was born in Baltimore and grew up in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. She received her undergraduate degree in Chemistry in 1998 and her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in 2003 at the University of Florida. She has one cat, G.I. Joe, and a shih tzu named Whimsy. Her interests outside of veterinary medicine include crafts, woodworking, and music. She has a passion for veterinary dentistry and has received additional training in this field. She also has a special interest in feline medicine and enjoys making sure cats receive the best medical care possible in a safe and comforting environment.

"I love being a veterinarian because every day is different, and I love the joy of meeting new pets and developing relationships through the years with them and their families. I enjoy the challenge of keeping up-to-date with the latest study findings and medical treatments. I especially love dentistry because I can be a pet's voice and relieve their often-silent pain and make them feel 'like new' again." - Dr. Musgrave
