Katherine Gagliardi, ,cVMA
I am a Colorado native, born and raised in Boulder. I became interested in veterinary medicine when I was a child through reading the James Herriot books. I always wanted to work with a wide variety of animals just as is described in the book "All Creatures Great and Small." I enjoy working with a wide variety of species including dogs, cats, and pocket pets like rats, guinea pigs, lizards, and even snakes. I have a huge passion for both Western and Eastern medicine. I am certified for acupuncture on animals through a medical-based acupuncture course that I completed in October 2016. I have two degrees from Colorado State University, one in sports medicine (2005) and one as a doctor of veterinary medicine (2010). I have worked at a wide variety of veterinary hospitals ranging from rural large- and small-animal private practices to small-animal and pocket pets/exotics specialty clinics owned by large companies like VCA. I enjoy preventive care, dentistry, internal medicine, and acupuncture/pain management. In my free time I love spending time with my family and being outdoors, especially in the mountains. I have been married to my husband for 11 years and he is a Boulder, Colorado, native as well. We have three little girls, ages 2, 6, and 8 years old. We also have two furry children: one dog, Lucy, and one cat, Kit Kat. We live in Erie and we are thankful to live near family as my parents and my husband's parents live on the edge of Boulder. I enjoy international travel and serving in third world countries. I have been to Africa five times on volunteer trips and have also traveled to Honduras, the Dominican Republic, Mexico, Canada, Nepal, and several parts of Europe. Another passion I have is for therapy dogs/pets and service dogs/pets. I have been volunteering in nursing homes and hospitals for the past decade and currently help with the vet behavioral exams at Good Samaritan Hospital in Lafayette. My own dog, Lucy, is a therapy dog for a local nursing home in Boulder called Manor Care. It is such a blessing to be working with animals of all kinds and I find the human-animal bond to be one of the most fascinating areas of study in all the world.
