Carie Allred, Associate Veterinarian

Dr. Carie Allred has been with VCA Oso Creek since August 2002. She came to VCA Oso Creek after serving in the US Army for 5 years through the Health Profession Scholarship Program. Having been an Army dependent, an active duty Army officer and now a Navy wife, she is sensitive to the needs of our military community and their pets. She loves to travel, and has lived in Germany, Japan and China, to name a few places. As a result, she loves foreign languages and speaks various levels of Chinese, French, and Italian.
Dr. Allred has revolutionized dentistry at VCA Oso Creek. She has pursued advanced training in veterinary dentistry since 2003 and performs many advanced dental procedures such as surgical extractions, oral fracture repair, interceptive dentistry, mandibulectomy, vital pulpotomy and root canal therapy. Dr. Allred has developed a passion for better pain management options, and is now certified in veterinary medical acupuncture, an evidence-based form of acupuncture. Her certification in veterinary medical acupuncture has enriched and enhanced the way she examines and treats her patients, with an emphasis on calm, gentle, but thorough palpation and observation, and making a connection with the patient and the owner. The results she sees with dry needling, electro-acupuncture and laser therapy have been immensely rewarding!
Dr. Allred is a strong proponent of proactive, preventive medicine, both for her patients and herself! An avid fitness and diet nut, she participates in sprint triathlons with her husband, Duncan during the spring and summer. They have 3 Japanese Chin dogs that all came into their lives via rescue, and a partially blind €œspecial needs€ cat named Hemi. When asked Hemi's breed, she tells people she's a €œCorpus Christi Inbred Hoarding Cat€. Hemi thinks she's one of the dogs, and the Chins are very cat-like dogs, so it all works out. Dr. Allred also proudly serves on the board and is a strong supporter of a local no-kill, no-cage cat shelter called The Cattery.
