I graduated from Colorado State University School of Veterinary Medicine in 1987 and went to work at a mixed animal hospital. I lived my dream, treating a variety of animal species - from dogs and cats to horses and cows to birds and reptiles - and loved doing it. After I left that practice, I worked primarily as a relief veterinarian in San Diego County - filling in on a per diem basis for other veterinarians. And I learned to my surprise that I prefer treating just cats. I love other animals but I find cats to be more enjoyable, more interesting and in some ways more challenging patients. I also find that I prefer to focus on just one animal species - it allows me to study their individual diseases in more depth and it allows me to keep current on the latest medical advances.
