Dr. Kendal Stratton

Kendall E. Stratton, DVM, is originally from Barrington, Rhode Island.  She started riding horses as a youngster and continued to compete in hunter/jumpers in New England through high school.   She was also an active member of the United States Pony Club, where she received her C3 rating prior to leaving for college at the University of Delaware.   During college Dr. Stratton competed in the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA).  As a student, she studied animal science and took specialty courses on equine lameness and reproduction.  She also worked in the cow nutrition laboratory, investigating nutrient requirements for the college’s herd of dairy cattle.  Dr. Stratton graduated cum laude with honors from the University of Delaware’s Animal Science program in 2004.

Immediately after college Dr. Stratton spent 2 years working at the University of Pennsylvania’s New Bolton Center large animal hospital, where she gained valuable experience in neonatal and intensive care cases.  Dr. Stratton was able to increase her knowledge of mares and foals, as well as care for one of their most famous patients, Barbaro.

In 2006, Dr. Stratton entered veterinary school at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY.  Here she was an active member and president of the student chapter of the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP).  To make some money for tuition, she also worked as a technician in the school’s Equine and Farm Animal Hospital while maintaining her studies.  Dr. Stratton graduated in 2010 from Cornell and went on to complete an internship in general equine practice at the well known Genesee Valley Equine Clinic, located outside Rochester, NY.  Her interests include general preventative medicine, reproduction, ophthalmology (eyes), neonatology and emergency medicine.

Dr. Stratton is excited to return home to where she grew up and first fell in love with horses and is looking for opportunities to get back in the saddle. She is an avid New England sports fan, and in her free time enjoys spending time with family and friends, being active with cycling, running and skiing, as well as hiking with her American Bulldog, Elle.
