Dr. Mark Drummond, DVM, with a canine friendDr. Buck Drummond grew up in Northern Virginia and then attended the University of Georgia for both his undergraduate and veterinary education. After completing an internship in small animal medicine and surgery, he spent the next 20 years in the Los Angeles area, specializing in emergency care and ultimately becoming the director of emergency services for a large 24-hour practice.

In 2008, he moved to historic Savannah, Georgia to pursue artistic interests and then, in 2010, he returned to the Washington metropolitan area to be closer to his family. Dr. Drummond is particularly interested in military and law enforcement canines, working to balance their health needs with their all-important duties. He is proud to be able to help continue their care into retirement through the Paws Of Honor organization.

Dr. Drummond moved to this area full-time at the start of 2019 and is thrilled to join the team at Chester Vet. He is still an active artist and lives with his husband, Michael, and their American foxhound, Tobias, in Essex.
