Carol S. Pitts, DVM

Secretary, Pitts Veterinary Hospital - General Practitioner

Dr. Carol PittsCarol chose veterinary medicine as a career because of her love of animals, especially dogs and horses.

She grew up in a suburb of St. Louis, and attended the University of Missouri. She received a BS in Agriculture and completed veterinary school in 1969. She and Terry were married later that year and lived four years in Maryland before starting their practice in Nebraska. While in Maryland, she worked at several hospitals belonging to one doctor, and had a small house call practice.

She's a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association and the American Animal Hospital Association.

They have two children, both are physicians, and eleven grandchildren.

Until recent years, Terry and Carol had five or six large dogs, several cats, and other assorted creatures sharing their lives. Currently they have two dogs: Mace, a rescue Doberman, and Munch, a rescue Greyhound, and a parakeet, Tommy II, a foundling with string caught around his legs rescued by a Good Samaritan.

The Pitts have had at least one A-negative Greyhound blood donor in their family for many years, pulling donor duty at the hospital when needed. Due to a rare genetic trait, Greyhounds can be used as nearly universal blood donors for dogs.

When needed, other canine blood donors are provided by caring clients who have allowed us to do the requisite testing to prove health and suitability of their dogs to be donors. They also willingly bring their dogs to the clinic at a moment's notice to save the life of another dog in need. We'd like to give a special thank you to those wonderful people and their special dogs!
