  • Dr. John (Jay) Kluttz, BVSC

    Dr. John (Jay) Kluttz, BVSC, a Baltimore native from Middle River, has been in practice since 2008.  He initially completed his undergraduate Biology degree at St. Mary's College in southern Maryland, then moved down under to New Zealand to study veterinary medicine at Massey University.  After graduating from vet school, Dr. Jay spent 4 years working as a mixed animal veterinarian in the picturesque New Zealand countryside, treating cows, sheep, dogs, cats and the occasional horse.  He met his wife Sonia, a New Zealand native, and adopted 2 rescue cats (Claus and Alex).  In 2012, the four of them returned to Baltimore to lay down roots, added a canine family member (Penny the rambunctious standard poodle), and Dr. Jay began exclusively treating small animals at a practice in Dundalk.  He joined the Abbey Animal Hospital team in November of 2015.  He soon knew that he had found his home, and became the practice owner the next year.  Dr. Jay is beloved by staff, clients, and patients, for his thoroughness and seemingly endless patience.  When Dr. Jay is not tending to animals at the hospital, he enjoys working on classic cars, watching classic movies, and playing with Penny.  The fall of 2018 marked a new chapter in Dr. Jay and his wife Sonia's lives as they welcomed their first child!
