Staff Veterinarian DVM

Dr. Piper received her BA from UCSB and her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from UC Davis in 1980. Her special interests are dermatology and hormonal diseases. When asked what she enjoys most about being a Veterinarian, Dr. Piper replied, "I enjoy solving and managing cases involving internal medicine, including hormonal disorders and skin diseases. I enjoy the relationships that develop and helping owners navigate the best path for their pets and the best quality of life we can provide for them."

Outside of work, you can find Dr. Piper gardening, cooking, sailing, and hiking. She is married to Dr. Sloan, and they have two children and FUBAR, their beloved cat, who has a long story that Dr. Piper is willing to share with anyone who will listen. She has also had Dobermans and Labradors, too.
