Alex Kilgore, BVETMED, MRCVS
Dr. Kilgore graduated in 2015 from The Royal Veterinary College of London, recently named one of the top three veterinary schools in the world. He grew up nearby in Ashland, Virginia and attended Virginia Tech for his undergraduate. There he pursued a double major in Biology and Animal and Poultry Sciences graduating Magna Cum Laude in 2010 and earning the title of Commonwealth Scholar. After graduating from Virginia Tech he decided to move to London, England to pursue his dreams of becoming a veterinarian.
Dr. Kilgore has been a part of the Springfield Veterinary Center team for many years working as an assistant when home from school, so his face may look familiar! However, he is excited to be finally joining us as a full-fledged veterinarian and we are happy to have him.
Dr. Kilgore has a particular interest in Ophthalmology and dreams of one day traveling in his free time with his partner Lucy performing charitable veterinary works in impoverished nations. Outside of the clinic, Dr. Kilgore is an avid rugby player and fan having played around the world during his travels. He is particularly a fan of the London Wasps Premiership Team having played for their amateur club while living in London. He is thrilled to be back at Springfield Veterinary Center bringing unique contributions after enjoying his experiences and education abroad. So, if you and your furry friend see Dr. Kilgore keep your ears open for a few odd British phrases!
