Susan Colfer , DVM
A member of the CSU graduate crew at the Pet Kare Clinic, Dr. Susan completed her studies at the Colorado State University Veterinary School in 1996. After that, she worked at a mixed animal practice in Laramie, WY before joining Pet Kare in 1998.
Dr. Susan originally hails from New Hampshire, and the love of the outdoors that often accompanies residents of that state applies to her. She enjoys skiing, travel, gardening, camping, and spending time with her husband Kelly and two boys Jimmy, 7, and Jack, 5. She also has an animal family with which she divides her time: her 10 year-old cat Squeak and her new puppy Maize.
Dr. Susan's Professional Interests:
House calls - I love doing wellness and preventative medicine in the home. It allows the animal to get care in a low stress environment, allows me to see how the environment may be affecting the overall health of the animal, and is a fun way to get to know the real personalities of the animals in their natural setting. Housecalls are very rewarding to me and a great way to practice wellness care. I like preventative and proactive medicine in the office as well! Geriatrics Endoscopy Internal medicine I am very interested in learning more about herbal and holistic medicine so that we can integrate alternatives with Western medicine. I am interested in trying to start doing some wellness and vaccine clinics in the surrounding areas over the next few years, including Oak Creek, Hayden and perhaps Clark as well. If anyone has a suitable space or interest in hosting a clinic please let me know!
