Dr  Kylie Huxford


Kylie joined the Waikato Equine Veterinary Centre team in 2017 after returning home to live in New Zealand with her family after an extended period of working in Australia. Kylie has specialist training in equine sports medicine and experience in equine reproduction and stud work. She completed her Bachelor of Veterinary Science degree at Massey University in 2008, and then moved to Australia for a one year equine internship at Agnes Banks Equine Clinic in Sydney. What was meant to be one year in Australia turned into eight, and for the next four years she worked as a Thoroughbred Stud Veterinarian for Scone Equine Hospital in the Hunter Valley. During this time she became a Member of the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientist in Equine Medicine, and completed a six month artificial reproduction internship in Texas, USA. In 2017 she completed a three year residency in Equine Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation at The University of Sydney to further her interest and skills in lameness and diagnostic imaging. During this time she also completed a clinical and research Masters of Veterinary Science. Kylie will sit her American Board Specialist examinations in Veterinary Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation in early 2018. Kylie’s interests outside of work include spending time in the outdoors with her partner and daughter, and walking their two dogs.
