Christina Showler, Staff Veterinarian

DVM

Dr. Tina Showler was born and raised in Switzerland. She moved to Southern California, attending UC Santa Barbara, graduating with High Honors and settled in Northern California after graduating from UC Davis, Veterinary School in 2001. Dr. Showler has made Sunset Animal Medical Center her home since 2009. Given the nature of veterinary medicine, there are no typical days for Dr. Showler, which she finds challenging, varied and exciting. She enthusiastically treats everything from routine preventative care, including spays and neuters to emergency surgeries like lacerations and abdominal surgeries. One of her highest priorities as a veterinarian is offering clients clear treatment options, yet providing high quality and advanced medical care to her patients.  Dr. Showler's other interests include toxicities, endocrine diseases, allergies, cancer, lameness, dental care and nutrition. Dr. Showler is certified to perform the PennHip procedure available for dogs as the most effective hip screening tool. She was certified in Veterinary Acupuncture in 2007 and although not currently practicing in that field, her holistic approach in deeply ingrained in her veterinary practice. 

In her free time you will find her cycling, hiking or downhill skiing in Tahoe. She aspires to become an avid traveler with her husband, Steve, and furry children.
