Kate Henderson joins us after 5 years of practice in Virginia Beach. Born in Norfolk, Kate grew up in the Atlanta area. She received her bachelors degree from Auburn University and her Veterinary degree from the University of Georgia. Married to Adam, her professional interests include internal medicine, infectious disease, and ultrasonography. She and Adam have 2 dogs Samuel Adams and Piper, and live in the Suffolk area.
Adam was born and raised here in Suffolk. He attended Nansemond-Suffolk Academy, and then spent 8 years at Virginia Tech to get his undergraduate and veterinary degree. Currently he also serves as the President of the Alumni Board of the vet school at Virginia Tech.
Adam and Kate share their house with a Labrador (Samuel Adams) and a Boykin Spaniel (Piper).
Adam's first job in veterinary medicine was actually with Dr. Harbour during high school. It was always his dream to own a veterinary clinic, and in December 2018 he and Kate were fortunate to have Dr. Harbour's trust to take over his clinic.
Adam's interests in veterinary medicine include surgery, dentistry, emergency medicine...and Labradors!
Dr. Harbour is originally from Norman, Ok., where he attended high school and eventually Oklahoma University, where he earned a B.S. in zoology, graduating in 1979. He then attended Oklahoma State University, where he earned his D.V.M. in 1984. After marrying Kay and working for 4 years at a large practice back in Norman, he relocated to Suffolk, Va, where he and Kay established his own practice in 1989. He has 2 children, Leah and Thomas, at least 3 dogs and too many cats.
