Dr. Wight has been with VCA Veterinary Specialists (emergency service) since 1996, almost since its inception. She graduated from Colorado State University in 1985 with a BS (high distinction) in microbiology, biomedical concentration. She went on to earn a DVM degree from CSU in 1989. From 1989 to 1997 she worked in a mixed practice in Estes Park, CO. She gained extensive experience in all aspects of veterinary medicine, and saw a large variety of animal species, including llamas, horses, cattle, pocket pets, ferrets, rabbits, birds, dogs and cats (of course) and the odd turtle, frog, and snake. The practice handled its own emergencies, so Dr. Wight became quite familiar with her passion of emergency medicine.
Dr. Wight has many interests outside the hospital, including cycling, hiking and camping, photography, canoeing the Boundary Waters, and she is an avid birder. The other members of her household include Chris, husband of many years, and Flounder, a cat adopted from the Larimer County Humane Society. And too many guppies to count, which are available for adoption to loving families€¦.
