Dr. Teresa Seggerman

Dr. Seggerman has had a varied and interesting career. After graduating in 1992 from Colorado State University, she worked for four years in mixed animal practice, specialized in llamas and goats, before joining the US Army Veterinary Corps. She traveled to Texas and Okinawa in the Army, providing medical care for military members' pets, as well as Military Working Dogs.

Upon returning to civilian life, Dr. Seggerman focused on small animal medicine, finally turning to emergency medicine, where she spent 15 years providing critical care for pets in several hospitals in the Denver metro area. She finally decided to return to the daytime world, and general practice, about six years ago.

Dr. Seggerman is proudly owned by four cats: Egbert, Willow, Kheya and Soji, who insist that she works hard and play harder to entertain them. She enjoys cooking, reading, gardening, hiking and is looking forward to raising chickens this year.
