Kim Retchloff, DVM


I started Tender Heart Animal Clinic in January of 2006 in Springfield, Missouri. After outgrowing our original location, we made a move to Rogersville in the summer of 2008. We have continued to grow and improve.

I received my Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Iowa State University School of Veterinary Medicine in 2000. I graduated with my undergraduate degrees in Biological Sciences and Zoology from Colorado State University.

My family has always been my biggest supporters and a huge part of Tender Heart Animal Clinic. My favorite thing to do when not at the clinic is to spend time with my husband, Barry, and my kids, Dexten and Tiya. They are my pride and joy. As a family, we enjoy spending time with our array of animals, from the cattle to the exotics. We spend most of our time outdoors, working cattle, hiking, working on our endless projects, playing a friendly game of basketball. There is never a dull moment!
