Welcome Dr. LaNita Flanary, Maddie & Bitsy
Dr. Flanary invites you to meet
Kimberly Rushing D.V.M.

Associate Veterinarian

Kimberly Rushing D.V.M. is an associate veterinarian at Flanary Veterinary Clinic.

At the age of 11, she decided that working with animals for the rest of her life was the way to go. Dr. Ward of Ward Animal Clinic in Fulton, KY allowed her to job shadow a week or so here and there starting at the age of 13 until she was actually hired at the age of 16. Growing up in Clinton, KY, Kim attended Hickman County High School and graduated valedictorian in 1996. When she wasn’t involved with her local FFA and FBLA organizations or at the vet clinic, she was working on the family farm. Three Bar R consisted of her Daddy (Willard), her Momma (Nancy) and herself. There was always a horse or twenty on the farm in addition to beef cattle and various dogs and cats running around. Dr. Rushing enjoyed riding and spent the majority of her youth on horseback. After high school, she enrolled in Murray State University in the Pre-Vet/Animal Health Technology program. Upon completing her mandatory requirements by her junior year, she was accepted early into Auburn University’s College of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Rushing graduated from Auburn in 2003. She practiced mixed animal medicine from 2003 until joining Flanary Vet Clinic in the fall of 2012.

Now days, Kim spends her spare time with her four legged kids, Miller and Dilly. Miller is a Boxer Mix who she rescued in 2006 at 5 weeks of age. He had a broken leg and was going to be euthanized. Dr. Rushing just couldn’t let that happen, so after 3 bone surgeries he has a bionic leg and loves his momma to pieces. Dilly came to the Rushing family as a rescue as well. At 4 months of age, she was just too much to handle for the couple that purchased her from a breeder. Knowing that Kim was an avid Boxer lover, the family sought her out. Dilly climbed into her Momma’s lap in January of 2012 and hasn’t gotten out since. Miller and Dilly are very, very spoiled critters. Kimberly also spends a lot of time in her hometown of Clinton, visiting with her Momma and helping to take care of the rag –tag group of dogs and cats that have come to find a home on the farm.
