Dr Cary Gayheart

drgayheartCary Gayheart is a Kentucky native and went to the University of Louisville for her undergraduate studies. For vet school, she decided to combine her love of travel with her career goals and moved to Dublin, Ireland to attend the University College Dublin. After graduation in 1999, she worked in emergency work for 2 years before settling into general practice. She joined the staff at Animal Doctors in 2011. She loves that the staff and clients feel like family and strives to make sure each experience in Animal Doctors is positive for the pet and the client. Her goal is to provide loving, compassionate care for all her patients through all their life stages.

She lives in Lyndon and shares her home with her husband and son, a Pug/Schipperke and two cats. When not working, she likes to enjoy her family, read, knit and sometimes sleep!
