Blake Klein, DVM


Dr. Blake Klein grew up in Palm Harbor, Florida, where her passion for canine health started through her volunteering with Southeastern Guide Dog School as a Puppy Raiser in high school.

Dr. Klein earned her Bachelor’s degree in Animal Science from the University of Florida (Go Gators) in 2015. After completing her degree, she packed her bags and moved across the pond to attend veterinary school at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland. She graduated in June 2020. While in school, Dr. Klein was able to incorporate her love of travel with her veterinary studies. This included travelling to a free small animal clinic in the Galapagos Islands where she was able to develop an appreciation for the large amount of medical resources we have available in the USA. She also had the opportunity to travel to South Africa where she learned about wild and game animal medicine.

After graduation, Dr. Klein wanted to move to North Carolina to be closer to her older brother in Winston-Salem.
