Meet Our Vets

Kathleen M. Anderson, DVM

Dr. Anderson grew up in western Canada and received her degree in Veterinary Medicine at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatchewan, Canada. Actively involved with horses from childhood she has worked in all facets of the equine industry from event competitor to international competition groom to barn manager and even exercise rider/pony person at Marquis Downs! Dr. Anderson started practice in 1986 under the watchful eye of long time US Equestrian Team veterinarian Dr. A. Martin Simensen in South Hamilton, MA. The restructuring of Suffolk Downs in 1990 encouraged many to leave New England so she migrated south to the New Jersey racing circuit, Pennsylvania racetracks and Maryland racing. In 1993 after the birth of her son John, Dr. Anderson settled at Fair Hill Training Center and has actively contributed to the continued success and upgrades at FHTC. Now a mother of two (daughter Quinn was born in 1998) Dr. Anderson enjoys riding, art and music, traveling and being a parent. She is active in many professional roles within the equine industry but her number one interest remains providing excellence in equine veterinary care!
