Kim D. Gemeinhardt, DVM
Dr. Gemeinhardt graduated from Auburn University College
of Veterinary Medicine in 1993. Being a mature student, Kim distinguished herself during vet school as someone who was game to give almost anything a try if it would help the animal.
After graduation, Kim and her husband Walter decided to settle
in North Carolina. Not finding any veterinary practices that satisfied all of her interests, Kim and Walter started their own:
Latitude 36 Mobile Veterinary Services, a mostly large-animal practice whose early motto was "We'll do anything legal."
While this attitude might have been necessary for a new business, it is also Kim's approach to veterinary medicine: she is willing to consider all reasonable options in an effort to help the animal.
Captain Walter Gemeinhardt
Walter's bio hosts an impressive list of activities, including service in the Navy, law enforcement, and the Merchant Marine, where he attained the rank of Master of Ocean Vessels. He retired from naval life to devote all of his time to developing Kim's veterinary practice and managing their farm, where they live with 3 dogs,
6 cats, 4 horses, 1 mule, and a herd of goats.
But while creating one of the most respected large-animal practices in North Carolina is impressive, perhaps their most remarkable achievement is that Kim and Walter have been married for almost 35 years!
