about us


Dr. Kristen Arp

I am a 2002 graduate of the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine.  My desire to help pets as the move through the last stage of life- and to help their families as the navigate this journey- has led me to further studies since finishing vet school.  I hold a special certification in hospice and palliative care.

This is a difficult and often scary journey, but with help, it can be peaceful, and maybe even beautiful.

I know I cannot make losing a loved companion easy.  It just isn't.  But I will do all that I can to make it easier.


Brandi Doublestein, Practice Manager

Brandi has been with me since March 2015, and she is the engine that keeps things going.  Hers is the pleasant voice on the phone when you call us.  She is professional and compassionate, and does her best to meet every client's needs at what is often a delicate and difficult time.  She and her husband, Sean have two beautiful children.  They are also parents to four fur babies, kitties Spartacus and Lilly,  and wonderful weimaraners Ava and Rolf.  When she isn't taking care of her crew, or our family of patients, she enjoys playing soccer.
