About Us

Meet Dr. Midkiff. She is the owner of Tender Touch Mobile Veterinary Care.

She grew up in Cary North Carolina and attended the College of Veterinary Medicine at NC State. She graduated in 1994 and chose to remain in the area. Since that time, she has found great joy working as a small animal practitioner. 

In 2006 she became interested in veterinary acupuncture and attended the  IVAS acupuncture course to obtain special training. Shortly after, she started TenderTouch to provide a home acupuncture service. During that time, she continued to work at other hospitals providing traditional veterinary care. Dr. Midkiff  has enjoyed the calm, relaxing atmosphere that home visits provide and loves the close relationships that she has been able to make during her acupuncture visits.  As such, she has expanded Tender Touch to incorporate routine home healthcare visits. She takes great pride in working closely with you and your pet and in providing  calm, compassionate care.

When she is not visiting her patients, she is at home with her own fur kids. She currently lives near Willow Springs with her husband, 2 dogs, 3 cats and 7 chickens. She considers herself a "homebody" and loves gardening, playing with her dogs, and doing carpentry around the house. She loves the outdoors and enjoys camping, hiking and photography.

She looks forward to seeing you and your "fur kids"  soon!
