We’ve got some really exciting news to share with all of you!!! The practice has been growing by leaps and bounds over the past few years thanks to your tremendous support, and we’ve enjoyed providing care for all of the patients and clients that our team has been able to assist along the way. And now, we’re adding another member to our care team to provide even better service for everyone!
We are proud to announce that Dr. Liz Gray will be joining the Animal Behavior Clinic in July! Dr. Pachel has worked closely with Dr. Gray over the past few years and is confident that she will be an incredible addition to our team. Outside of her experience and education in animal behavior, she also has a background as a general practitioner and shelter veterinarian. She will be seeing cases in the office an average of 4-6 days per month, and will be available at other times for phone rechecks and treatment plan updates. We are excited to bring Dr. Gray’s expertise to our patients, and to accomodate a higher volume of cases seeking behavior assistance with us each month.
Liz Gray, MS DVM, graduated with her Master’s degree from Colorado State in Zoology (focusing on applied animal behavior) in 2002. She then attended veterinary school at CSU, and graduated with honors in 2006. During her schooling, Dr. Gray worked at a local training facility as a dog trainer, and helped to teach an applied animal behavior class to her fellow veterinary students. Dr. Gray has worked in general veterinary practice, as well as shelter behavior and medicine, for the last 10 years. She is currently the behaviorist and one of the veterinarians at the Humane Society of Central Oregon in Bend, OR. Her specific professional interests include parsing out the physical contributors to behavioral changes in older dogs as well as addressing the unique behavioral challenges faced by rescued and rehomed animals. Dr. Gray enjoys volunteerism, and goes to Playa del Carmen, Mexico every year to volunteer at a 6-day high volume spay/neuter campaign. For fun, she enjoys traveling, hiking, biking, spending time with her two daughters and husband, and rehabilitating the omnipresent foster animals. She has two pets of her own: Kali, a rescued Mexican street dog, and Oscar, a fabulous orange tabby cat.
Please join us in welcoming Dr. Gray to the practice!!!
