    Dr. Kevin D. Ballard was born and raised in beautiful Southern Utah, growing up in the town of Hurricane. He grew up next door to his Grandparents who always had a horse for him to ride. He knew from a young age that he wanted to be a veterinarian and focused his efforts to reach that goal from late in middle school through graduation from Hurricane High School in 1995. He attended Southern Utah University from 1998-2002 where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree, then moved on to Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine from 2002-2006.  He worked at Desert Pines Equine Center in Las Vegas, NV from May of 2006 to September 2012, and also works occasional weekends at Southwest Animal Emergency Center in St. George, Utah. He enjoys being a veterinarian;  especially performing dental's, lameness, and surgeries. He and his wife Ann are the proud parents of nine children.  They enjoy the outdoors together riding horses, driving wagons, camping, hunting, and fishing. He has always had a deep love for nature and animals. His love for service comes from his parents and grandparents, and he truly loves to help others in any way he can. He loves living in Kanab and serving the animals and people of Southern Utah.
