Dr. Buechner graduated with distinction in 2010 and received her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine. She then completed a one year rotating small animal medicine and surgery internship at Texas A&M University, College of Veterinary Medicine in 2010. Following the internship, she was accepted to a three year competitive ophthalmology residency with Eye Care for Animals in Phoenix, Arizona, which she completed in June 2014.
