Dr. Edward L. Holton Jr.
Dr. Edward L. Holton Jr.
Owner, Veterinarian
When Dr. Edward Holton’s childhood puppy fell ill, he went along with his parents to the local veterinarian’s office. After that experience, he remembers telling his mother and father that he was going to become a veterinarian himself one day. Dr. Holton’s dream never wavered—now, he’s proud to own and operate his very own animal hospital!

Born in Washington, Georgia, Dr. Holton grew up in Evans and was only 15 years old when he started working for a local animal clinic in Augusta. He would continue to help pets there through his undergraduate career, and was then accepted into the University of Georgia’s College of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Holton graduated in 1994 and launched his private-practice journey at a pair of practices in the northern part of the state.

In 1997, Dr. Holton launched All Animals Veterinary Hospital and has been serving the area’s pets and animal owners here ever since. As a vet, he likes complicated medical cases and is particularly fond of general and orthopedic surgery. Dr. Holton also loves to administer preventative healthcare measures—for him, there’s nothing better than meeting a new pet and proactively keeping them healthy!

When he’s not at the clinic, Dr. Holton enjoys staying active in the Dawson County Rotary Club, playing golf, and tending to his herd of dairy cows. He and his wife, Patty, have two twin sons named James and Matt, both of whom work here at the clinic and are pursuing veterinary medicine themselves. The family shares their lives with several pets: Meghan, a Coonhound mix; Pickles the English bulldog; two Australian Shepherds named Taylor and Chloe; and a Standard Poodle puppy who goes by Beaux.
Tiffany
Tiffany
Veterinary Technician
Tiffany is a pet owner herself, and her family always kept animal companions around the house while she was growing up. For her, caring for animals is simply in her nature. Why not turn that into a fulfilling and exciting career, Tiffany thought, by becoming a veterinary professional?

Tiffany is originally from Stone Mountain, Georgia and launched her career at a local animal hospital there. She would continue to help pets and their owners at that clinic for 14 wonderful years! She moved to Cumming in August of 2011, and started as a member of the All Animals Veterinary Hospital team in March of the following year. Tiffany serves as a Veterinary Technician, and she has a special interest in communicating directly with clients and getting to know the area’s pet-owning families. She also has a soft spot for our feline companions, and is particularly adept at helping nervous or angry kitties to feel more comfortable.

Outside of work, Tiffany likes reading and spending quality time with family. She and her husband, Brian, have two sons and several pets: a loveable cat named Samantha and a pair of dogs named Paco and Grace.
Dee
Dee
Receptionist
Long before she was an employee here at All Animals Veterinary Hospital, Dee was a client. When the opportunity arose for her to join the team at the hospital she’d brought her own pets to for so many years, she jumped at the chance! Dee is now a proud member of the clinic’s front-desk team.

Originally from southern Louisiana, Dee moved to Dawsonville in 1996 and has lived in the area ever since. She worked in the human medical field for 18 fulfilling years before deciding it was time for a change of pace—that’s when Dee decided to do something she’d always been passionate about and explore the world of veterinary medicine. She joined the All Animals Veterinary Hospital family in October of 2020 and couldn’t be happier with her choice! Dee’s favorite part of every shift is getting to foster relationships with the area’s pet owners and their four-legged companions.

Away from work, Dee’s interests include staying active in her church, reading, visiting the beach, crafting, and spending quality time with her family. She and her husband of nearly 30 years have two wonderful children, Ariel and Ren, as well as several granddogs.
Vanessa
Vanessa
Technician
Ever since dealing with her own dog’s health issues, Vanessa was hooked on veterinary medicine. She knew that she wanted to understand more about the ailments that plague our pets, and to help other pets live happier, healthier lives as a result. That’s why Vanessa decided to become a veterinary professional! She gets to help pets hands-on as a part of the Veterinary Technician team here at All Animals Veterinary Hospital.

Vanessa grew up in Newnan, Georgia and first launched her journey in veterinary medicine through an internship program at her high school. In late 2020, as a pre-veterinary student at the University of North Georgia, she was approached about working at a clinic in the area. That’s how Vanessa signed on here at All Animals Veterinary Hospital, and the rest is history.

Around the hospital, Vanessa likes keeping things clean and organized, and she’s also fond of soaking up all the knowledge she can from the clinic’s doctors and support staff. Getting to dote on adorable pets every day is just an added bonus!

Vanessa’s interests away from work include traveling—she even spent several months abroad in Europe!—and doting on her own pets at home. She has a rescued dog named Kaia, as well as a kitten, Stormi, that Vanessa rescued at only two weeks of age.
Matt Holton
Matt Holton
Veterinary Technician
For Matt, veterinary medicine runs in the family—his father is Dr. Edward Holton, and his twin brother James works alongside him here at All Animals Veterinary Hospital. Matt knew early on that he wanted to do the same thing as his father and help animals to live happier, healthier lives! He couldn’t be happier to gain hands-on experience in the veterinary field here at the hospital while applying to veterinary school.

Matt is a Dawsonville native and a recent graduate of the University of Georgia, where he obtained his Bachelor’s degree in animal and dairy science. He plans on continuing his education at veterinary school in the future! For now, Matt serves in all areas of the hospital and enjoys the great variety that every day brings—on any given day, he might help to birth a litter of puppies or treat an infection in a dairy cow, and that fast-paced environment keeps him on his toes.

In his free time, Matt likes spoiling his own dogs at home. He shares his life with two Australian Shepherds named Taylor and Chloe.
James Holton
James Holton
Veterinary Technician
James has quite literally grown up right here at All Animals Veterinary Hospital—he was six months old when his father, Dr. Edward Holton, opened the clinic doors for business. It wasn’t difficult for James to gain an innate passion for the world of animal medicine, and he’s decided to pursue a career in veterinary medicine himself!

James grew up in Dawsonville, where he frequently went on house calls with his dad and raised and showed cattle. Those experiences only deepened his desire to help as many animals as he possibly could. He attended the University of Georgia and graduated with a degree in animal science, and is now a veterinary student at the University’s College of Veterinary Medicine. James looks forward to graduating with his Doctorate in the next few years and launching his own career as a licensed veterinarian!

When time permits between his busy school schedule and his time here at the hospital, James enjoys cheering on the Georgia Bulldogs and spending time with his own dogs, Chloe and Taylor, at home.
Kirsten
Kirsten
Receptionist
When Kirsten was a child, she knew that she would one day grow up to work with animals. If there was a sick or injured critter, you could bet Kirsten would be there, doing everything in her power to help. Whether it was putting Band-Aids on an injured bird or triaging her sister’s dog who had been hit by a car, Kirsten had a knack and a passion for animal care. It came as no surprise that she’d eventually end up working at a veterinary hospital.

Kirsten’s career journey has covered several industries, from grocery to retail to car sales. In each of these jobs, she found herself feeling out of place and unfulfilled. That’s when she decided to change gears and move into animal medicine. She worked at a few clinics over the years, and started a family along the way, before joining the All Animals team in August of 2022. Professionally, she loves being a voice for the voiceless and watching new fur babies grow into happy, healthy adults.

Outside of the clinic, Kirsten is mom to three wonderful children. The family is made complete with a guinea pig named Kelsea, two cats – Paris and Belle, and a senior Chihuahua mix named Lydia. The cats frequently roam the house calling to one another and enjoy accompanying their humans to the bathroom. Lydia knows when Kirsten has pulled down the road and will race to the back door to greet her.

In her spare time, Kirsten enjoys playing pool, bowling, watching movies, playing board games and doing anything outdoors. Her kids recently challenged her to a game of laser tag, which Kirsten handily won.
