Mitchell Spindel, DVM

Dr. Spindel earned his Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from Oklahoma State University in 1995. He practiced in Syracuse, New York for two years before he and his wife relocated to beautiful North Carolina. Although Dr. Spindel loves treating dogs and cats, he also has a passion for unusual pets like birds, reptiles, and small mammals. He’ll even care for injured birds of prey, wallabies, kinkajous and an occasional Coati mundi.

Active in the Winston-Salem community, Dr. Spindel is the veterinarian for Kaleideum North Museum (formerly known as Sci-Works) and Chairman of the Animal Adoption & Rescue Foundation board. He was instrumental in helping to build the dog park at Tanglewood, as well as heavily involved with animal organizations such as the Forsyth Humane Society and Humane Solutions.  Dr. Spindel’s free time is spent planning his next construction project, mountain biking, practicing yoga and spending time with his wife, four children and a plethora of pets.
