Dr. Kristen B. Boston , DVM

Dr.Kristen Boston is a native of Munster, Indiana. She grew up loving animals, bringing home numerous stray pets. Some of these pets were adopted from the veterinarians she worked for during her junior high and high school years. She also spent time horseback riding, her favorite hobby. After high school, Dr.Kristen attended Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana for 2 years of undergraduate work. She was then accepted to the Purdue University School of Veterinary Medicine, graduating in 1989.

Following graduation, she worked as an intern at Apex Veterinary Hospital, a large mixed practice in Apex, North Carolina. That was a year of seeing all creatures- horses, cattle, dogs, cats, goats, and even some llamas! Dr.Kristen also met Dr.Gerard Boston during this internship year. They married in 1992. After practicing in Georgia and Maryland, the Boston’s returned to Gerard's home state in 1996, and purchased Covington Veterinary Hospital in 2001.

The Boston’s live with their family in Covington. They enjoy spending time with their children, Luke and Claire, dogs, Claude and Quigley, and the family cat, Audrey.
