Dr. Caryl Kline is a 1985 graduate of Auburn University School of Veterinary Medicine. Undergraduate work was done at Western Kentucky University and Morehead State University where she also completed an Associates Degree in Veterinary Technology in 1977. When not at Preston, Dr. Kline spends time with her family, camping and trail riding with her horse Cowboy, working on her farm, and occasionally volunteering at the Shelby Co. Animal Shelter.
