Dr. Kent Vince joins Seattle Veterinary Specialists after spending 12 years of service as a Veterinary Corps Officer in the United States Army. Originally from Michigan, Dr. Vince received his officer commission through the Army ROTC program and earned his Bachelor’s of Science in Animal Science in 1996 and his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in 2001 from Michigan State University.  Upon completion of a one-year internship at Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital in Lexington, Kentucky, he entered active duty military service at Fort Hood, Texas where he served as veterinary treatment facility officer in charge.  Dr. Vince deployed to the Middle East in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003.  He was then selected to complete a small animal surgical residency at North Carolina State University where he also earned a Master’s of Specialized Veterinary Medicine degree.  Dr. Vince became a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons in 2010.  In addition to his assignments at Fort Hood and NC State, Dr. Vince was the Chief of Veterinary Services in Okinawa, Japan and most recently Director of Dog Center Europe; the US Army’s premier veterinary referral hospital in Germany supporting military working dogs throughout Europe, Africa and the Middle East.  While no longer his primary job, he continues to serve as a Lieutenant Colonel in the United States Army Reserve.

Dr. Vince is eager to bring his military working dog medicine experience to SVS.  His clinical interests include orthopedic surgery and treating traumatic injuries in dogs.  He has presented at numerous national and international veterinary meetings and won research awards from both the Veterinary Orthopedic Society and American College of Veterinary Surgeons.

Dr. Vince is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, Veterinary Orthopedic Society and Veterans of Foreign Wars.  An avid world traveler, food lover, mountain biker, and skier, he enjoys his free time with his wife Katrin, daughter Karlie, and Dachshunds Johnson and Heidi.  Dr. Vince and his family are excited about their the move to the Pacific Northwest and exploring all of the culture and outdoor activities it has to offer.
