Meet Our Veterinarians

Dr. Evelyn Bowden, DVM

Dr. Evelyn Bowden, DVM

Dr. Evelyn Bowden is one of the proud owners of Health & Harmony Animal Hospital. Her Alma Mater is Wittenberg University where she graduated with a B.A. in Biology in 1996. Between undergrad and vet school, she allowed her life experiences to guide her to her next venture, which was to pursue a degree in Veterinary Medicine. She graduated from The Ohio State College of Veterinary Medicine in 2009, spent her first three years out of school working for a rural mixed animal practice, then pursued her dream of owning her own veterinary practice. She feels fortunate that Dr. Kim West joined her in this pursuit, as they have been devoted friends for almost 20 years! Creating a welcoming, calm, supportive environment by communicating openly with clients and going the extra mile to provide comfort to our patients has been their vision and we hope that you will experience this coming to our clinic.

Dr. Bowden shares her life and home first and foremost with her husband, Chuck, who is a Union Pipefitter of almost 30 years! Her stepson, Zach, is 20 and on his way to taking on and figuring out the world. They also have 3 rescue kitties (Bakey, Pixi, and Buddy) and 2 rescue dogs (Josie and Loki) who keeps them very busy! Their first Doberman (Tanner) will forever remain their hearts.

Dr. Kimberly West, DVM

Dr. Kimberly West, DVM

Dr. Kimberly West graduated from The Ohio State College of Veterinary Medicine in 2004 and has worked in various small animal veterinary hospitals and animal shelters within the Columbus area.

One of her passions is animal rescue which comes almost inherently; she has many inspiring stories, even about her own pets!

Dr. West is also excited to share the benefits of acupuncture and herbals in a more integrative approach to veterinary medicine, allowing more choices for the care of your animals.

Anyone that has met Dr. West knows that she has never met a stranger!  This is evident in how deeply rooted she is in Columbus, especially within her own neighborhood of Grandview Heights.

Although her roots are in Grandview Heights, those roots extend all the way to Beavercreek, Colorado, where she and her husband, Blake, share time together snowboarding and hiking with their two dogs, Tupelo Honey and Fruitbat. You can now find Dr. West’s darling 3-year-old son, Michael, romping through her house as if he’d always been there!
