  • About Us

    UVES is owned and operated by Dr. Kristen Clapp. Kristen is from Long Island, NY where she was brought up riding and showing hunter/jumpers. She trained and owned her off the track Thoroughbred “Puck” for about 15 years. It was through riding and growing up working on a small farm on LI that Kristen learned at a very young age that she wanted to devote her career to veterinary medicine.

    Gretchen V.
  • "Kristen and Penny came out today for routine care for my three geldings. Can’t recommend them enough! They both took care of my tribe like they are members of their own. Always nice to work with a vet who takes the time to explain what they are finding and how they will correct it. Thanks Kristen and Penny!"
