Dr. Kristen Back

Dr. Back is a veterinarian at Richmond Road Veterinary Clinic who is passionate about providing the best care for pets.

Dr. Back was born in Lexington, Kentucky, and grew up in Versailles, Kentucky. She has loved animals since she was a child, and her parents always supported her passion for animals. Her family always had a dog in the house, and she is grateful for their support.

Currently, she has two dogs named Tucker and Brady. Tucker has been with her through many life changes, including her time in undergrad at the University of Kentucky. Brady joined the family three years ago and is the energetic one of the pair.

Dr. Back is married to Joseph, whom she met in high school when they were set up as prom dates. They hit it off, and they have been together ever since.

She enjoys working out, running, and spending time outdoors – hiking, kayaking, fishing, rock climbing, and white-water rafting. She is always up for an adventure.

Dr. Back’s favorite part about working at Richmond Road Veterinary Clinic is the team atmosphere and how much everyone cares about providing the best care for pets. She previously worked as an assistant/technician at the clinic before attending veterinary school, and she loved it so much that she returned to work there as a veterinarian. She feels blessed to work with such amazing doctors and staff and learn from them.

Finally, Dr. Back wants people to know she is excited to be at Richmond Road Veterinary Clinic. Her own dogs mean so much to her, and she feels honored to be trusted to care for the pets that mean so much to the community. She is passionate about providing the best possible care for all animals and is committed to positively impacting the lives of pets and their owners.
Dr. Back and the whole staff took such amazing care of my dog. They were so gentle and comforted her throughout the whole process. I appreciate being able to call after the visit with additional questions and Dr. Back made herself available to me personally. Truly so thankful for you all during this time with my very sick puppy. Thank you!
