Kerri Anderson, DVM
Hospital Owner and Veterinarian
Kerri Anderson grew up on a sprawling farm in the Midwest and has spent her life around animals since she was a young girl. Her family farmed in various parts of Missouri, Arkansas, Iowa, and Kansas, and young Kerri started helping out on the farm early on. While driving the tractor one day when she was 15, Kerri decided she’d become a veterinarian. “Baby cows are the cutest and agriculture people are the salt of the earth. I knew I’d go into mixed practice because I wanted to stay involved with animals, but I also wanted to be able to help farmers like my own family who needed help every day with their livestock”, she says.
Always a hard worker, Kerri left the farm and went to veterinary school at the University of Missouri, moved to California, and did dairy practice for 10 years in the Chino and Central Valleys. After more than 20 years spent in veterinary medicine, she is a seasoned diagnostician and expert surgeon. Eventually, Dr. Anderson came to Ventura County, and “I felt like this valley was my home the very first time”, she says. When Dr. Anderson moved to the Santa Clara Valley she also started performing spay/neuter surgeries. “The more I learned about the homeless pet population in California the more I became passionate about playing a role in fewer animals being euthanized”, says Dr. Anderson. In the 10 years since she made the move and started to help pets and reduce overpopulation she has done over 80,000 surgeries, and she continues to be committed to helping the pets of our region through this simple and safe procedure.
She lives with her husband Andy, son Jack, and Cleko the kitty, loves day hikes, camping in the family van, flying airplanes, working on home improvement projects, sewing, and visiting her family in Missouri when she has the time.
Now, in the spring of 2021, Dr. Anderson opens a new chapter and becomes the new owner and operator of the Fillmore Animal Hospital. She is taking over the beloved local hospital from the Lidikay family who provided excellent and compassionate veterinary care to the animals of Fillmore and the Santa Clara Valley for many years. “I am excited and honored to start writing a new chapter for our community. My team and I can’t wait to be of service to the pets of the Santa Clara Valley, and their families”, Dr. Anderson says.
