Kelly Vader Lightfoot - DVM
Dr. Kelly Vader Lightfoot was born and raised in Kansas City, Kansas. She graduated from Kansas State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine in 2003 and practiced in the Brookside area of Kansas City, Missouri. She took over the clinic in July, 2009, when Dr. Ringel retired. Dr. Lightfoot lives in Piper, Kansas with her husband Brad, their daughters Georgia and Ella and their Great Dane, Annie May. Dr. Lightfoot also has a cat named CeCe at her clinic.

“I was honored to be chosen by Dr. Ringel to carry on his legacy in caring for pets and their people, and I am happy to be practicing in this community near where I live. At Basehor Veterinary Clinic, we believe that honesty and understanding combined with experience, knowledge and skill are required to achieve the best outcome in patient options and care.”
