Whitney Lemarr, DVM
Even as a child, Dr. Whitney Lemarr always knew that she wanted to become a veterinarian. “I couldn’t stand to see animals in pain or suffering,” said Dr. Lemarr. “And I loved to help people who loved their pets. So becoming a veterinarian was the perfect choice for me.”
Dr. Lemarr grew up in rural Harlan, Kentucky and confesses that she was always bringing animals home. “My parents were pretty good natured about it,” she said. “But they had their limits.”
These days, Dr. Lemarr has had to set her own limits. “I now have four cats and two dogs—I think that’s my capacity,” she confesses. “All of my animals have come to me through my career—either abandoned or animals with quirks that no one else wanted. But I have learned that I can’t take them all home and I’ve found good homes for many other animals with needs.”
Whitney Lemarr, graduated from Auburn University School of Veterinary Medicine in 2005, where she earned her DVM. After graduating Dr. Lemarr completed her clinical internship at Carolina Veterinary Specialists in Greensboro, NC. Dr. Lemarr especially enjoys internal medicine, where she has the ability to treat a broad spectrum of patients. She joined Boones Creek Animal Hospital in 2009, and has been with us ever since.
When Dr. Lemarr isn’t helping animals, she enjoys hiking, biking and reading anything that she can get her hands on. Dr Lemarr resides in the Tri-Cities with her son, several dogs, cats and a beta fish named Bruce.
She enjoys working with Dr. Dalpiaz because they share the same philosophy and ideas about veterinary medicine. “We both love to treat animals and help people,” she explains. “I’m delighted to practice at Boones Creek Animal Hospital, the staff is wonderful and our clients are happy. What more could you ask for?“
