“We want to provide a warm and caring environment for pets and their owners while offering the best medical and surgical veterinary services.”

Dr. Keith Robbins
Dr. Robbins was attracted to Catoctin Veterinary Clinic because of the warm, caring environment and solid veterinary reputation that Dr. Clinton Pease had fostered for over 20 years. In 2006, Dr. Robbins purchased Catoctin and has been committed to continuing the open, caring, and nurturing environment of the clinic.
He currently lives in Brambleton with his wife and three children. The most recent addition to the family is a rescued dog named Elliot who Dr. Robbins endearingly refers to as “The Spoon” (not the sharpest knife….). When Dr. Robbins is not at Catoctin he enjoys playing basketball and soccer and watching his kids’ endless sporting activities. In 2018 he had the opportunity to visit Italy and Spain, which whet his appetite for travel.
Dr. Robbins, along with the other veterinarians at Catoctin Veterinary Clinic, is dedicated to providing his clients and furry patients with the best, compassionate care. He has been the owner at Catoctin for over a dozen years and fully plans on being here for at least another dozen more.
