Curt Ritchie DVM, DAVDC
Curt Ritchie DVM, DAVDC is a 1996 graduate of the Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine. He practiced mixed animal for the first five years of his career. In December of 2000, he and his wife Jennifer purchased the Perkins Road Veterinary Hospital concentrating on small animal medicine and surgery only.
After fifteen years of general practice, Dr. Ritchie realized how little he knew about dentistry and oral surgery. After attending dozens of dentistry CE programs and wet labs, he decided to start his residency program through the American Veterinary Dental College. In 2019 he became the only AVDC Board Certified Veterinary Dentist in the state of Louisiana. Dr. Ritchie practices exclusively dentistry and oral surgery at his hospital four days a week. He is also an adjunct professor at the LSU Veterinary School where he performs dentistry and oral surgery on all of their patients one day each week.
Dr. Ritchie is an avid sports fan and follows everything that wears LSU purple and gold. He is a trail runner and enjoys competing in ultra-marathons, fishing, traveling out west to hike and run in the mountains, and golfing. His wife is also a graduate of the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine and is an instructor at LSU. Both of their daughters are currently attending LSU.
