Your pet is a member of your family and deserves the best veterinary care. We understand. We’re pet owners too.
Kitsap Veterinary Hospital, located in Port Orchard WA, provides top level care to Kitsap County pets and their owners. Our on-site team of doctors, uniquely trained in general and specialty veterinary medicine, can administer most of your pet’s veterinary needs within our office, minimizing the need to send you and your pet to an unfamiliar specialty doctor.
At Kitsap Veterinary Hospital we keep up with the latest advances in veterinary medicine and invest in cutting-edge technology and equipment. We are dedicated to lifetime wellness care for your pet and treat each animal individually based upon his or her special needs rather than using a one-size-fits-all approach to veterinary care.

Prior to graduate school, Dr. Buck earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Biological and Animal Science from University of Vermont in Burlington, Vermont.
Dr. Buck is originally from Vermont, where she lived for 21 years. She moved to the Pacific Northwest in 1994 and worked as a veterinary technician for one-year, which confirmed her decision to attend Veterinary School. Dr. Buck is married to Andrew King, and they have two boys, one mischievous miniature dachshund and two cats.
In January 2004, Dr. Buck formed a partnership with Dr. Christman as co-owners of Kitsap Veterinary Hospital and in 2011 Dr. Christman chose to enjoy partial retirement. Dr. Buck enjoys spending time with her family outdoors, hiking, biking and walking. She also is an avid runner and enjoys stamping and scrapbooking.

Prior to attending veterinary school, she graduated from Washington State University in 2001 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Animal Science with an emphasis on veterinary medicine. In 2004, she graduated from Pierce College with an Associate�s Degree in Veterinary Technology and became a licensed technician.Dr. Lock worked at Kitsap Veterinary Hospital before she returned to college to become a veterinarian.
Dr. Lock grew up primarily in Seabeck, Washington, having moved to Washington in 1986 with her family when her dad was transferred to the west coast by the U.S. Navy. When not working hard to care for her patients she enjoys reading and spending time with her dedicated canine companion, Bugsy.
Dr. Kelly Hoover�s early love of animals was reflected in her high school job as a Ward Nurse at Kitsap Veterinary Hospital. After graduating from Washington State University�s College of Veterinary Medicine in 1998, she spent the first seven years of her career in Bothell, Washington. She moved back to Gig Harbor in 2006 and has completed the journey home by joining Kitsap Veterinary Hospital once again, this time as a veterinarian experienced in small animal medicine, general surgery and dentistry. She finds the most joy in bonding with her patients and their families and sharing in their journey through all the phases of life.
When away from the clinic, Dr. Hoover enjoys spending time with her husband and their three children. They share their home in the country with a Labrador mix named Nero, their Llewellin Setter Ruby, and three cats, Mudgie, O�Malley and Ruckus. The whole family enjoys exploring the Northwest�s camping and fishing destinations, often starting the camping season before the last snow falls.
Dr. Christman is a Washington State native who received his Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from Washington State University's College of Veterinary Medicine in 1978 and his Bachelors of Science in Microbiology from the University of Washington in 1974. Dr. Christman's special interests and advanced education include soft tissue and orthopedic surgery, internal medicine, nutrition and dentistry. After many years of dedicated, long hours, Dr. Christman has reduced his schedule to focus on the surgical side of the practice for established patients, as well as second opinion cases. Dr. Christman is a dedicated family man and we are glad he will be able to spend more time with his wife of 35 years, Andrea and their children and grandchildren. He is a passionate biker, skier and all around outdoor enthusiast, now he will have a bit more time to enjoy these pursuits.read more
