Adrienne Denzik Robertson, DVM, CVCP
Dr. Robertson is originally from Fairdale, Kentucky. Growing up, Dr. Robertson rode horses and competed in various styles of riding including Hunter Jumper, Dressage, Cross Country, Saddleseat, Western Performance and Contest. Dr. Robertson was a “horse person” before she became a veterinarian and her extensive background with different breeds and styles has been an asset to her patients and clients. Dr. Robertson also worked as a veterinary assistant for small animals for 7 years before attending Veterinary school. After obtaining her Bachelors degree in Biology from Bellarmine University in Louisville, Kentucky, Dr. Robertson attended Veterinary school at Auburn University in Auburn, Alabama. She completed an Equine Internship in Lexington, Kentucky before returning home to practice in Fairdale.
Dr. Robertson has always felt that Fairdale is her home. Although she travels with her ambulatory practice in Jefferson and surrounding counties, she chose to make Fairdale her home base. Our practice has recently expanded to include a Veterinary hospital and surgical facility. Dr. Robertson resides in Louisville with her high school sweetheart/ husband John, and sons Gavin and Peyton. Family also includes dogs Princess Coco Chanel, Cooper, and Bella, and cats Dillion and Dani.
In her “spare time” Dr. Robertson continues to be an active participant in the horse community. She enjoys jumping, trail riding, showing her warmblood babies in hand and is currently showing in the Dressage ring with her horses, Peter Pan, an Andalusian stallion, and Fredtastic, an Oldenburg gelding.
