Meet Our Team
Dr. Heather Bunting
My name is Heather Bunting. I am the founder and veterinarian of Kindred Animal Hospital. I dreamed of being a veterinarian since the age of five. I grew up with dogs, cats, rabbits, hamsters, fish — pretty much any pet my parents would allow! I began working in the veterinary field at the age of 16 as a kennel technician in high school, graduated from Texas A&M with a BS in Animal Science in 2003, and graduated with my doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from Western University of Health Sciences in 2009. I went on to complete a small animal rotating internship in medicine and surgery in Los Angeles and then practiced in the Redondo Beach area. My Texas roots, however, could not be denied, and I moved back to Texas in 2013. After practicing at Bulverde Animal Hospital for five years I decided to pursue my ultimate dream and start my own practice.
My practice philosophy is to incorporate each individual pet’s and family’s needs while providing the highest quality medicine available. I strive to strengthen the human-animal bond by keeping your pet happy and healthy throughout every life stage. I strongly believe in decreasing my patients’ stress while in the hospital and want them to feel at home when they visit us. One of the best parts of being a veterinarian is you can love on your patients!
In my free time, I enjoy hiking and spending time on the river. I also tinker with carpentry; a trait passed down from my grandfather. I am an avid Texans and Aggie fan. My fur baby family includes a fluff ball orange cat named Lupe, an ankle biter Yorkie named Chewie, and Bella, a 15-year-old Catahoula, who you will probably see wandering around the clinic.
I am excited about the opportunity to care for your four-legged family!
