Richmond’s ‘House Call’ Veterinarian

Dr. Kaitlyn Hemsley

Dr. Kaitlyn Hemsley grew up in Chesterfield, Virginia. She graduated from vet school from Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine in 2013 and has worked in both emergency medicine and general practice. Over the past 2 years, Dr. Hemsley has broadened her knowledge to incorporate both Eastern & Western medicine. She earned her certification in Veterinary Acupuncture at The Chi Institute of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM).

In her free time, Dr. Hemsley enjoys hiking, gardening, spending time with family and relaxing with her dog, Ava and cat, Laird.


Chief Cheerleader


Ava was adopted after when she was about 10 months old. She had lost the use of her left arm after being struck by a car. In need of surgery and a forever home, Dr. Hemsley adopted Ava. Since then, Ava’s been hopping around spreading smiles and giving kisses. She’s the ultimate morale booster! Ava was the inspiration for Dr. Hemsley to learn more about Acupuncture & Holistic Therapies.

Just like all pets, it’s very important that she stays fit and healthy with daily exercise & routine examinations. In her free time, Ava enjoys chasing frisbees and squirrels.


Paw-blic Relations Manager


Laird is gifted with an outgoing personality & close attention to detail. Laird thoroughly inspects all inventory & supplies, available on the Online Pharmacy. His spunk and charm make him the perfect guy to manage the monthly newsletter & online appointment scheduling and forms.

As you can imagine, Laird stays very busy, even in his free time he makes it a priority to lounge across all paperwork. In his free time, Laird enjoys chasing Ava & snoozing in his window seat.
