Dr. Brad Spain
Veterinarian

Brad Spain

Dr. Spain grew up in Kincaid, KS and is a proud 2008 graduate of Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine. Passionate about providing the best quality care for your pet, Dr. Spain brings us ten years of experience in practice and his professional interests include small animal internal medicine, dermatology, and orthopedic surgery. When Dr. Spain is not at the clinic, he enjoys spending time with his family and friends, traveling, and storm chasing! During storm season, it’s not uncommon for Dr. Spain to be out in search of tornadoes; storm chasing is his favorite (and riskiest!) hobby. The scariest moment in his storm chasing career was when he narrowly missed being crushed by a one ton hay bale during a severe storm in south east Kansas. Dr. Spain looks forward to getting to know you and your pets!
