About Us

Veterinarian Dr. Erin Dexter Buikema

Capital Home Veterinary Care

Capital Home Veterinary Care was founded by Dr. Erin Dexter DVM in 2007.

Dr. Dexter is a 2003 graduate of the Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine. She received her Bachelors of Science Degree with Honors in Biology from Randolph-Macon Woman’s College in Lynchburg, Virginia. She is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, Virginia Veterinary Medical Association and the Veterinary Information Network.

Dr. Dexter grew up on a farm in New England with many horses, goats, chickens, dogs and cats. She has worked as a small animal and equine veterinarian since graduation. She lives in Powhatan with her husband Matt, their two daughters Sydney and Abigail, their Rhodesian Ridgeback Reuben, Boston Terriers Benson and Barbary, and three kitties Manny, Minny and Stewart. Also on the farm are a miniature donkey named Dunkey, a Nubian goat named Sprinkles, and 5 chickens.

In 2007, after years of practicing in veterinary hospitals, Dr. Dexter founded Capital Home Veterinary Care LLC, a housecall practice, with the goal of providing exceptional veterinary care at an affordable price in the comfort of home.

“I started this practice because I wanted to offer a more personalized service for pet owners and a less stressful experience for their pets.”

Veterinarian Dr. Brittany Breidenbach

Dr. Breidenbach started her career as an equine veterinarian but after 4 years and a growing family, realized that small animal veterinary medicine would better suit her family. For the past few years, Dr. Breidenbach has practiced in a brick and mortar small animal clinic and has missed being out on the road, with the ability to meet pets and owners where they are most comfortable. She is originally from Maryland, attended the University of Findlay in Ohio for her undergraduate work, received her DVM from the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine, and completed an internship in Kentucky before settling down in Virginia. Dr. Breidenbach grew up with a love of horses and many family dogs. She owns a one-eyed OTTB that is an absolute saint and tolerates her “re-rider” skills and her kids (Adalina years and Konrad 4 years) riding him. Eventually, you may see them all out at a few horse shows! In addition to their horse Paxton, they have a three-legged cat (Maug), and a goldendoodle puppy (Finn).

Dr. Breidenbach is excited to be part of the Capital Home Veterinary Care family and looks forward to meeting you and your family, 4 legged members included, of course!
