Dr. Kim Moore - Veterinarian


Dr. Kim Moore has been practicing in Gaston County since 1984 and has over 33 years of experience in helping improve the lives of pets and their people.

"I was always helping animals", explains Dr. Moore, who grew up on a farm. "From the age of 10 or 11, I knew I had a special purpose to help pets and become a veterinarian. I excelled in science in school, and, with that interest, I decided to pursue veterinary medicine". Many who have experienced working with Dr. Kim have noticed his gift of animal magnetism. Dr. Kim explains, "Most pets respond to my touch and seem to sense that I am there to help them get well". Dr. Kim also likes helping people. "Being a veterinarian gives me an opportunity to help people through improving their pets' health."

Dr. Moore's interests are surgery, orthopedics, exotics, and holistic and herbal medicine. "I've always been excited about learning new things, so I can continue to practice a high standard of care." Recently, Dr. Kim became one of around 20 veterinarians in the country to complete Advanced Clinical Training in the holistic modality of Nutritional Response Testing (an alternative approach to healing allowing the body to heal itself). "I like working at WAH because the staff has the same high ideals of optimum care for the patients and service for the clients that I have always strived to achieve, and the practice is organized such that it can be achieved."

He lives in Gastonia with his wife Ellen. His four sons, Ryan, Drew, Jordan, and Greg are all grown up and leading successful lives away from home. He has been active in Boy Scouts and, along with his sons, was the designer of the famous "pumpkin chunkin" catapult, "Roman Revenge" (ranked 2nd in the world) for the World Championship competition. His catapult is the only catapult ever built to record multiple throws over 3000 feet!

Dr. Moore is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, NC Veterinary Medical Association, and the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association. He currently has 2 cats but has had many, many pets over the years.
