Dr. Kaleigh Flock is the most recent addition to the Back Mountain Veterinary Hospital family, just joining us in July of 2022. Dr. Flock did her Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Animal Science at the University of Connecticut. She earned her Veterinary Degree from the Iowa State University, College of Veterinary Medicine in 2020, after which she completed an externship with the VCA Veterinary Specialists of CT. Dr, Flock had been working for the USDA FSIS before her love for small animals and exotics brought her to us. She is very excited to be a part of a veterinary hospital that provides state of the art care and diagnostics. The mentorship of the other doctors is enabling her to grow her skills and expand her capabilities to provide the best medicine possible to furry, scaly and feathery friends. Dr. Flock is a proud member of the AVMA and the AAV (American Veterinary Medical Association and American Avian Veterinary). She is Fear Free Certified and is looking forward to bringing some of that training into her daily practice. Dr. Flock enjoys providing general wellness care for dogs, cats, and exotics (including birds) but she also has a keen interest in surgery, dentistry and dermatology. Her personal interests outside of work are just as varied, including mental health and wellness, running, singing and playing music. She was a competitive runner in High School and played clarinet in her college marching band. When the weather cooperates, Dr. Flock loves to hike and kayak with her husband, Luis and their mini poodle, Vern. Otherwise, she spends her free time visiting with family and friends.
