Our Veterinarians

Kathryn Fink, DVM

Becoming a vet has been Dr. Fink’s goal since she was 9 years old. She attended Michigan State University and graduated in 2004. In October of the same year, she moved to Maryland and began working at BVH. She is now the practice’s medical director and part owner.

When Dr. Fink is not at work, she fills her life with friends and family. She loves staying physically active with walking many of the local trails and spending time outdoors. If she’s not outside, she’s inside enjoying a good book or cooking/baking. She currently lives in Ellicott City with her husband.

Shawnne Spencer, DVM

Dr. Spencer is a Maryland native who has always been interested in animal care. In 2003, he and his brother were the first pair of twins to ever simultaneously receive DVM degrees from Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine. He previously worked at Fairland Animal Hospital in Silver Spring, and joined Beltsville Veterinary Hospital in April 2020.

In addition to his official duties here, Dr. Spencer sits on the medical advisory board of the SPCA Humane Society of Prince George’s County. When not at work, Dr. Spencer enjoys spending time with his family and his pet dog, named Indie.

About Us

Founded by Dr. A.C. Brown in 1965, Beltsville Veterinary Hospital has been your neighborhood veterinarian for over 50 years. We grew up with this community, and we care for its pets like they are our own. Our goal is to provide every animal with a lifetime of optimal health. This means we emphasize preventive medicine, including regular checkups, lab screenings, and vaccinations. We also have complete diagnostic and surgical suites to detect and treat any unexpected conditions.

Every member of our professional family is committed to exceptional care. Most of our veterinarians, technicians, kennel workers, and administrative staff have been with us for many years. They are up-to-date on the latest veterinary care practices and procedures. Everyone is familiar with advanced and modern diagnostic equipment.

We love our community and pride ourselves on providing great, quality pet care. We often host veterinary school residents at our practice because we understand the importance of the mentorship to upcoming care providers. Each May you can also find us at Beltsville Day celebrating with our community and sharing health resources with area pet owners.

We proudly care for the pets of Beltsville and our surrounding communities of Calverton, College Park, Laurel, Greenbelt, Silver Spring, and beyond!
