Hello, I’m Dr. Mitzi Richardson. I was born in Paducah, and attended Jetton Jr High, PTHS, Murray State University, and OSU. I have been practicing veterinary medicine for (gasp) 40 years. I graduated from Ohio State University in 1978, with Dr. Jimmie Golden. He started Lone Oak Animal clinic that year. I joined him the beginning of 1980. I had been away from Paducah and my family for 5 years and I wanted to come home!! Dr. Golden and I were partners for 20 years before adding Dr. Jason Rodgers to our team in 2000. In the earlier days of practice, we saw large animals, small animals, and exotics. We have many funny stories about practice together. One night we went close to Smithland, Kentucky for a night time call about a “staggering” horse. When we arrived at the farm, we found an extremely intoxicated horseman with a perfectly normal horse. We patted the horse, gave the owner a large cup of coffee, and assured him that the “staggering” would cease in a couple of hours.
I am married to Eddy Richardson, a local man from Melber, Ky. He is my soul mate and the love of my life. We have four children Cory, Lacy (Boyd), Luke, and Casey (Weldon). We now have 9 grandchildren. All 4 families live within a 20 minute drive from our house. What a Blessed life I have lived. We attend Southwest Church of Christ and are very passionate about our love for God.
I have enjoyed practicing veterinary medicine tremendously over the years. Most people who love animals are really great people. Since my husband retired several years ago, I cut my working hours to spend time with him. I have no plans to retire at this time. Few people are able to call a great joy of their life their job.
