Dr. Taylor D. Lyne
Dr. Taylor Lyne was born and raised in Chester, Virginia. As a young boy he worked many summers and weekends at the Veterinary Clinics in various roles as kennel assistant to technician watching his father save pets and improve their lives. He was fascinated with seeing his father bring sick pets back to health and performing involved surgeries. He was equally amazed at the imperative bridge that a veterinarian builds between a pet and its owner. Those experiences cemented his desire to become a veterinarian like his father. In 1984, he graduated Fork Union Military Academy, went onto Emory and Henry College in Abington, Virginia for his undergraduate and then finally on to Mississippi State Univerity, College of Veterinary Medicine. He graduated Veterinary School in 1994.
His greatest interests in Veterinary medicine are dermatology and orthopedic surgery. He is also certified in Tibial Plato Leveling Oosteomy (TPLO) correction of anterior cruciate leg rupture, repairing torn knee ligaments.
He’s married to K.C., the Gourmet Canine Cookie Chef, and has three boys. He enjoys racing his mountain bike, golf and wrestling with his boys.
He would also like to increase his experience in orthopedic platting, incorporate in-house telemedicine (being able to teleconsult with specialists via the internet) and start a 24-hour emergency center.

Dr. Watson graduated from the University of Pennsylvania College of Veterinary Medicine in 1982 and has been practicing for 24 years.
