Dr. Patty Pruitt brings more than 30 years of veterinary care experience to her four-legged patients. She earned her DVM from the University of Illinois in 1982. That same year, she visited Vermont for the first time and fell in love with the area. Less than a decade later, Dr. Pruitt moved to the state, eventually landing in Middlebury, where she currently resides. In 1995, she started her house call practice, Open Air Pet Repair, in conjunction with her presence at the Bristol Animal Hospital. In 2008, she completed her acupuncture certification (CVA). Dr. Pruitt believes that her knowledge of Western and Eastern medicine enlarges her healing toolbox.
