Dr. Scott Anderson graduated in the inaugural class (1984) of the Virginia/Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine. He attended the Eastern School of Farriery and was a practicing farrier prior to becoming a veterinarian. He initially worked in a practice in Pennsylvania attending to farm animals, dogs and cats but after a year narrowed his scope of practice to horses as an intern in Raleigh, NC.
A New England native and a resident of the Richmond area for more than 30 years, Dr. Anderson joined Woodside Equine Clinic as an associate and then purchased the practice from Dr. Milton Kingsbury in 1989.
With a focus in Sports Medicine and Lameness, he was one of the first veterinarians in the United States to become certified in equine acupuncture by the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society (IVAS). He is also certified in veterinary chiropractic medicine through the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association (AVCA). Today, in his practice, he excels at examining horses in search of areas of discomfort, diagnosing and treating problems and developing a plan to achieve peak performance.
Dr. Anderson lives on a horse farm with his wife Laura and daughter Arianna. They have an ever changing number of animals usually totaling well over forty between their horses, dogs and cats. Dr. Anderson is an avid mountain and road biker and also enjoys skiing.
