Learn Who We Are

  • Doc
    I am Doctor Alan Witter, aka. “Doc.” I am a graduate of Cornell’s Veterinary School, as was my father before me and my brother after me. My uncle and one cousin are also veterinarians, so veterinary medicine seems to have run in the family. I am mostly retired and only work a few hours every month so you may see me some Saturday mornings.

    Hi! I am Dolores Newman, one of the new owners at Confederate Ridge Animal Hospital.  I was born in Philadelphia and grew up in New Jersey.  I have lived in Virginia for 28 years.  I am a Virginia Tech alumni of both undergraduate and vet school.  

    Caroline County is my home along with my wonderful supportive husband, Rod.  My 4 children are grown either finishing college or starting their careers.  However my house is never boring with 3 active dogs and 5 cats.  We have just added some baby chickens to the menagerie.  

    Confederate Ridge Animal Hospital is a great place to spend my days with a superb staff and fantastic clients and patients.  In my spare time I do enjoy gardening, reading, cooking and hiking with my husband and Great Dane Bethy.

  • Dr.

    I was born and raised in rural Northwest Pennsylvania. After attending undergraduate school in Ohio, I graduated from Purdue University of Veterinary Medicine in 1991. For the next 14 years I worked at a mixed animal practice not far from where I grew up. While I enjoyed working on the numerous dairy cattle in the region and had many great small animal clients and patients, the long winters and too many nights of on-call emergencies became a burden. So, in 2005 I moved with my young family to King George to work For Confederate Ridge Animal Hospital. Life is good again, I do not miss the snow and on-call work!

     I am happily married to my husband James, who I met in college. We have two children, both grown and in college now. On any given weekend I can be found in my kayak out on one of the area’s many rivers. Catfish fear me.  Over the last few years I have become an avid fossil hunter and ancient history enthusiast.  I am a happy camper and enjoy spending days traipsing through the woods in search of waterfalls and mountain vistas and in the night, sleeping in my homebuilt teardrop trailer. 
    I like to get to know my clients and their pets, and to treat them the same as my own family and pets, I am happy that the pace of work and great support staff here at Confederate Ridge allow me to do that.
