Dr. Jerry Redding II - Veterinarian
Dr. Jerry Redding II's love of animals began with the family cats and dogs he grew up with in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia.
He also developed a love of large animals when he was young, regularly helping to care for horses at a family friend's horse farm. Dr. Redding moved to northern Virginia during high school and volunteered at the White Oak Animal Hospital where he had the opportunity to observe procedures and surgeries, solidifying his interest in veterinary medicine. He attended Michigan State University for his undergraduate education and graduated with a B.S. in Zoology with a concentration in Herpetology and went on to attend veterinary school at St. George's University in Grenada, graduating in 2006.
Dr. Redding moved to the Hampton Roads area in 2008 to start his career as a veterinarian at Banfield in Virginia Beach. In 2010 he left Banfield and spent time working as a relief doctor and completed his acupuncture training on small and large animals, becoming a certified veterinary acupuncturist (CVA) in January 2010. In 2011 he became the associate veterinarian at Boulevard Veterinary Hospital for Integrative Healing in Norfolk and treated small animal and exotic patients with both traditional medicine and veterinary acupuncture. While practicing at Boulevard he continued his eastern veterinary education and became a Certified Veterinary Chinese Herbalist (CVCH) and a Certified Veterinary Food Therapist (CVFT) in 2012 through the Chi Institute. Dr. Redding purchased and became Chief of Staff of Hickory Veterinary Hospital in July of 2013. Dr. Redding is excited to bring Eastern medicine, veterinary acupuncture, and exotic pet exams to the service offerings at Hickory Veterinary Hospital and he looks forward to continuing to expand the hospital in the coming years.
Dr. Redding shares his home with Clyde the Siamese cat. In his free time, he enjoys spending time with Clyde, gardening, watching football, and playing trivia.
