Our veterinarians have the skill and expertise necessary to keep your pets healthy and well.
Dr. Taylor D. Lyne
Dr. Taylor Lyne was born and raised in Chester, Virginia. As a young boy, he worked many summers and weekends at the Veterinary Clinics in various roles as kennel assistant to technician watching his father save pets and improve their lives. He was fascinated with seeing his father bring sick pets back to health and performing involved surgeries. He was equally amazed at the imperative bridge that a veterinarian builds between a pet and its owner. Those experiences cemented his desire to become a veterinarian like his father. In 1984, he graduated Fork Union Military Academy, went onto Emory and Henry College in Abington, Virginia for his undergraduate and then finally on to Mississippi State Univerity, College of Veterinary Medicine. He graduated Veterinary School in 1994.
His greatest interests in Veterinary medicine are dermatology and orthopedic surgery. He is also certified in Tibial Plato Leveling Osteotomy (TPLO) correction of anterior cruciate leg rupture, repairing torn knee ligaments.
He’s married to K.C., the Practice and Resort Manager for the Hospitals and Pet Resort, and has three boys. He enjoys racing his mountain bike, golf and wrestling with his boys.
He would also like to increase his experience in orthopedic platting and incorporate in-house telemedicine (being able to teleconsult with specialists and clients via the web). In 2018 he became a Fear Free Certified Professional, offering a more thoughtful, calm approach to physical exams, diagnostics and treatment.
He is an active member of Ironbridge Baptist Church, participates in the FAITH mission and AWANAS, Charitable Golf Tournaments, SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals), Ducks Unlimited, is member of good standing in the Chester Masonic Lodge #94, as well as the International Mountain Bike Association.
Dr. Lyne works 3-4 days/week typically Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and alternating Saturdays. His surgery days are Wednesday and Friday.
Dr. Mary Patton
Dr. Patton grew up in Virginia Beach and moved to the area in 2002. She received her undergraduate from the University of South Carolina with a Marine Science major and graduated in 1995 from Virginia Polytechnic Institute, School of Veterinary Medicine.
She has 3 children, 2 daughters, and a son. She also has 3 dogs, Doodles, Tiger and Ginger; 2 cats Scooby and Rango; and Moss the gecko. When she’s not working she enjoys taking the dogs for walks and reading crime drama novels as well as watching BBC shows.
Dr. Patton is a full-time Veterinarian with us and works typically Monday, Tuesday, Friday and alternating Saturdays. Her surgery day is typically Monday and alternating Thursdays.
Dr. Victoria Regetz
Dr. Regetz grew up in Powhatan, Virginia. She graduated with her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from the University of Georgia in 2017 and has been with West Chester Pet Resort since July 2019. She grew up on an angus farm and started working in Veterinary Medicine while in high school. Dr. Regetz firmly believes that pets aren’t just pets, but family members, and how important it is to take the best care of our furry children. She doesn’t want to JUST be your vet, she wants to be your OTHER family doctor. Patient care, client communication, surgery, dermatology, and nutrition are her passions in veterinary medicine. Her furry children are Peri, a chocolate lab, Precious her Yorkie, and Madison her dorkie. When Dr. Regetz is not working she is an avid fitness enthusiast, that loves weight lifting, hot yoga, and cooking. In addition, she loves reading sci-fi and self-improvement as well as JMU and UGA football games.
Something most people would never guess about her is that she’s driven the same car her entire life. She received it as a present for her 16th birthday and was perfectly content. About 5 years ago “she” started making a whistling noise so “she” was nicknamed Mrs. Potts (like the tea kettle from Beauty & the Beast). Later her husband bought the same car but newer, so they named him “Chip”.
Dr. Regetz is a full-time Veterinarian with us and works Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday with alternating Saturdays. Her surgery days are Tuesdays and alternating Thursdays.
