I grew up in my father's very busy veterinary practice in Oklahoma, where I learned how
to help pets and their people. After earning my Bachelor's degree from Oklahoma State
University, I spent time traveling like a gypsy in Europe, and then looked West to further
my education, landing at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, where I earned a Masters
degree from Colorado State University. I loved the process of research, but I also had a vision
of being the person people would seek out for help with their pets. I followed this vision by
earning my DVM from CSU and found that I was a better doctor when I applied research
concepts to my daily job in the clinic- questioning things, trying new ideas and thinking outside
of the box.
Having benefited personally from acupuncture, and seeing the amazing things it can do for both people and animals, it seemed only natural to earn my certification in the field and incorporate it into my practice by offering this specialized form of medicine, along with other similar treatment modalities.
I am very passionate about helping people work through the difficult process of deciding when it is time to let a beloved pet go. We will talk through the process of euthanasia, and I'll help you decide how and when to decide. And when you are ready, I will help make it a kind, peaceful process for both you and your companion. Visit my page Apana For My Pet to read about my approach to this difficult process:
