Dr. Paola graduated from Colorado State University, where she earned her veterinary degree.
Dr. Paola has worked with a variety of animals including dogs, cats, and exotics. She worked in general practice before discovering that she has a passion for end-of-life care where she can help our animal companions and their humans through a gentle transition between life and death, and to help give the gift and memory of a good death. Dr. Paola also has special interests in acupuncture and laser therapy to provide optimal comfort for our animal friends. She is Fear-Free Certified because she also believes in always providing emotional and mental comfort for our animal friends.
