We Now Offer Honeybee Veterinary Services

The FDA federally mandated starting January 1, 2017 that hobbyist and commercial beekeepers will no longer be able to purchase antimicrobials over the counter. The mandate is part of the FDA’s reform on the way antimicrobials are used in food-producing animals. Honeybees are the only insect listed as a food-producing animal, so now bee-keepers will need a veterinarian to manage the health of their hives and prescribe antibiotics.

Local beekeepers are in luck, because Dr. Kittel is a hobbyist apiarist. Familiar with honey bees, and experienced with his own hives, Dr. Kittel can provide expert veterinary care for any beekeeper in need of medical care and/or antibiotics for their hives and bees. Please call our office or send Dr. Kittel an email at if you are interested in getting information about our honeybee veterinary care & services.


Since 2016 we have been using Vetstreet, a client communication system that offers an online Pet Portal where clients can do so much more than just schedule appointments online. Clients get their own online pet portal they can use to view/print out their pet's basic medical records and vaccine due dates, request prescription refills, order food, schedule appointments and communicate with our staff all from their own computer or cell phone! We utilize Vetstreet to send out reminder emails and postcards, appointment confirmations, client newsletters, and special offers to our clients. Text messaging is also available to remind clients about your pet's health care needs and to confirm upcoming appointments, all you have to do is opt in for that service. Be sure to log in to your online pet portal to choose your preferences for how our staff can best communicate with you about your pet's health & medical needs. Please call the office if you have any questions about or problems with Vetstreet.

  • "Wow! Thanks to all the staff at Kittel Family Veterinary Practice. I feel like you all truly love what you do! My kitty, Lola and I always have such a pleasant experience when we come in. Fortunately, it’s usually just for a check-up, but I would not leave Lola in anyone else’s hands but yours. Thank you for your caring commitment!"

  • "I have benefited tremendously from the care my pet received from Dr. (LASTNAME}."
    John C.
  • "Fabio wasn’t eating the food I was giving him and I didn’t feel he was getting the nutrition he needed. Thanks to Dr. Anderson, he evaluated Fabio and his current diet to make some recommendations and now Fabio has gone from barely eating to finishing his meals and he looks healthier than ever. You clearly are an expert in your field...thanks so much!"
