The History of Women in Veterinary Medicine
The early female pioneers in Veterinary Medicine had to overcome many obstacles, challenges, and oppositions. Florence Kimball is widely known as the first American woman to earn her doctorate in veterinary medicine in 1910.
Today, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association, the current ratio is 55 percent female/45 percent male in the veterinary market.
We couldn’t be more proud of our awesome family of veterinarians. We would like to honor the strong female veterinarians that we all know and love from all of our practices.
