About Dr. Howton

FullSizeRender (1)Dr. Howton graduated from The University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine in 2005.  However, becoming a veterinarian was her second career.  When she graduated from high school, she wanted to put herself through school, so she got a full time job and went to the closest school to home which was The University of Alabama, Birmingham.  She received a Master’s degree in Accounting and became a CPA, but never felt this was her “calling”, so with the support of her wonderful husband, David, she decided to become a veterinarian.  After graduating from the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine, she and her husband moved to Canton, GA, where she was employed by an animal hospital in Marietta for 11 years.  Dr. Howton and her husband currently live with a “few” whippets.  They have owned whippets since 1992, have participated in conformation and lure coursing events, and are members of whippet rescue organizations.  They both enjoy watching Nascar racing and college football, and are big Alabama Crimson Tide fans!  She also roots for the Gators and says, “I hope you are not easily offended by my Alabama or Gator scrubs!”
