Robert Krudop, DVM
Dr. Robert Krudop was born and raised on Long Island, NY. His childhood was spent surrounded by dogs, birds, horses, rabbits, sugar gliders, reptiles and fish. It comes as no surprise that Dr. Krudop has wanted to be a veterinarian ever since he was in kindergarten. In the 9th grade, he shadowed his local veterinarian and fell in love with the field of veterinary medicine and the way that it allows him to serve both animals and people. Dr. Krudop's undergraduate degree was earned at Cedarville University (Bachelor of Science, Molecular and Cellular Biology). He then went on to earn his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine. Before earning his license as a doctor and joining the team at Spring Oaks, Dr. Krudop worked as a veterinary assistant in Ohio. His favorite aspect of veterinary medicine is being able to help others make a difference in their pets' lives, and he is also passionate about surgery, animal reproduction, and exotic animal medicine. Dr. Krudop shares his home with a German Shorthaired Pointer, a Schnauzer, a parrotlet, and about 100 reptiles that he breeds professionally. In his spare time, he enjoys fishing, canine sports, hiking traveling, volunteering, motor sports, and exploring new places.

My name is Valerie and I have been a dog groomer for over 10 years. I recently relocated here from Illinois a few years ago. I have a Chihuahua/jack russell mix of my own named Dude, who is quite the ladies man. I mostly like to spend my free time with my husband and daughter exploring the nature Florida has to offer and playing disc golf. One of my favorite breeds to groom is a golden retriever, but I also love all the fluff of a poodle. Providing top quality work is important to me because there is nothing better than seeing your pet strut their stuff when they know they look good!
