Kelly Crawford
Veterinary Specialist DVM, DACVIM (Neurology)
Dr. Crawford is originally from metro-Atlanta, Georgia. She attended the University of Georgia, where she received a bachelor's degree in 2011 and her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree in 2014. She then completed a one-year internship in small animal medicine and surgery here at VCA Alameda East from 2014 to 2015. While at Alameda East, Dr. Crawford realized her love for Neurology and went on to complete a one-year neurology specialty internship at the Animal Neurology and Imaging Center in New Mexico from 2015 to 2016. In 2016, she began a three-year neurology/neurosurgery residency at Purdue University, in partnership with the Animal Neurology Center and MedVet Commerce in Michigan. Dr. Crawford became board certified in Neurology in July 2019. She worked in private practice in the metro-Detroit area for a year before moving back to Denver.

Dr. Crawford enjoys all aspects of veterinary neurology, but especially loves neuroimaging, neurosurgery, and seizure management. Her residency project focused on improving the radiographic diagnosis of atlantoaxial instability in toy breed dogs and was published in the Journal of Veterinary Radiology and Ultrasound.

Dr. Crawford is thrilled to be moving back to Denver and to be working with the excellent doctors and staff at VCA Alameda east again! She shares her home with her husband, two dogs, and two cats. Outside of work, she enjoys running, baking, hiking, and spending time exploring Colorado.
