Dr. Sandra Husted

She attended the University of Virginia and Virginia Tech, and holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology, a Master of Science Degree in Microbiology, and a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Virginia Tech. She has over 30 years experience in small animal medicine and surgery. She has owned and served as Medical Director of Milton Animal Hospital since 2003, and has worked hard to make the name synonymous with quality veterinary care. Her special interests include general and laser surgery, dental surgery, veterinary pediatrics, and client relationships.
Dr. Husted served for 4 years on the Board of Directors of the American Animal Hospital Association, and is committed to the standards of excellence for which the Association stands. She has also served on the AAHA Animal Health and Welfare Committee, the AAHA Referral and Specialty Task Force, and served as Chair of the AAHA Foundation.
In her spare time she enjoys spending time with her family, riding her Quarterhorse “Tex”, or traveling and exploring the West. Her newest furbaby is "Sir Oakley of Foxwood" (pictured) a Boston Terrier
Dr. Husted is also an accomplished singer and songwriter with 3 recorded albums. She currently sings with the Sugar Beach A Cappella Chorus based in Niceville, and with C Waves barbershop quartet and The Sandpipers barbershop quartet.
Kristie has been in the veterinary field since 1999 where she started as a technician/receptionist and then moved into the manager position. After leaving the field in 2015 she decided that this is her true calling and came back as our manager in December 2018. She has one Australian Cattle Dog "Brinn".
Lynn is owned by quite the "fur family" consisting of her five dogs Nikki the Yorkie, Gus the Lab, Brawny the Cattle dog, Chrissy the German Shepherd, & Kane the Dane. She also has two lovable felines, Sophie & Abigail. Lynn joined our Milton family in 2015 but has devoted her life to caring for animals from the start. She was the child who played veterinarian with her stuffed animals and followed her passion to volunteering during her teen years and eventually found her niche being a veterinary technician. She has a passion for client education and the care of your best friends and companions. Lynn was an Army brat and has lived a little of everywhere across the country, but she has finally settled into the Milton and enjoys spending her free time with her son & daughter. Fun Fact! Despite loving sunny Florida, Lynn also enjoyed living in Alaska as a teenager and working with Dr. Dee from the Animal House featured on Animal Planet.
