Betty Wood

Credentialed Veterinary Technician

At a Glance

My Pets:

Rowan - Cat
Spenser - Cat
Asher - Border Collie
Betty Wood received her degree as a Veterinary Technician from Parkland College in 1982. Since that time she has worked in general practice medicine, shelter medicine, and several veterinary specialties that include Surgery, Internal Medicine, Oncology, Emergency and Critical Care, and Integrative Medicine. It was in Integrative Medicine that Betty discovered a passion for rehabilitation. Betty received certification as a Veterinary Rehabilitation and Massage Therapist from the Healing Oasis Wellness Center in 2012. While helping patients recover from orthopedic or spinal surgery is fulfilling, Betty says her favorite patients to help are the older dogs that struggle with arthritis, and weight management. Seeing these pets get a new lease of life is the reason she got into rehabilitation.

Betty lives in the suburbs, near her two sons and her grandchildren. She shares her home with three cats and a Border Collie named Asher. She enjoys spending time with her family, cycling, and hiking nearby trails with Asher. Once or twice a year, Betty and Asher hit the road to explore a National Park.
