Kelly Long, DVM
I am a native north Floridian from a rural community in Live Oak. My family there owns and operates a multigenerational cattle and tobacco farm. Having grown up on a farm, animals have always been in my blood. In my youth I cared for dogs, cats, rabbits, chickens, turkeys, pigs, cows, goats, horses and even wild fox and raccoons. Having grown up in such an animal rich environment it was only natural to dedicate my life to their care and well-being.
After graduation from the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine in 1996, I spent 3 years in an exclusive dairy practice serving northern and central Florida. In 2000, I purchased Tomoka Pines Veterinary Hospital where I have been serving our clients, patients and community ever since. My special interests include orthopedic and soft tissue surgery, ultrasound and radiology. I have been active locally in the Volusia County Veterinary Medical Association where I served as president for 3 years. I continue to attend state and national conferences to expand my knowledge in current medicine and surgery. I strive to focus on preventative care and senior pet wellness.
I have two wonderful children, both of whom love animals. Our animal family includes 2 dogs, 4 cats and 2 horses. I enjoy time with my children foremost. In addition I love the outdoors, including camping, hiking, fishing, archery and shooting sports. I love the Rocky Mountains, travel, cooking, wine, music and photography. When not at work, I may be hard to find!
