Following a move back to the Metroplex, she worked as an associate veterinarian in Fort Worth before the Hub City called her home. In Lubbock, Dr. Whittenburg continued her work as an associate veterinarian and in academia. The most exciting day in her career occurred on May 1st, 2013 when she opened her own hospital, Kingsgate Animal Hospital, right here in her hometown of Lubbock, TX. Outside of the hospital, Dr. Whittenburg's world revolves around her adorable daughter. She also enjoys reading, outdoor activities, spending time with friends and is a small group leader in her church's Kids' Ministry.

We've been taking our three Yorkies here since we moved here in 2015. One had her teeth cleaned and no problems. We also board our three here often. No problems. Very nice and friendly staff.
