Dr. Joy Reimers graduated from Colorado State University’s Veterinary Medicine program in 2012, following a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Sciences. She was born in Texas and likes to joke that it is her home country, but has lived in Colorado since she was a child. She has a strong focus on preventative medicine with the goals of maximizing her patient’s length and quality of life, and also advocates low-stress handling techniques to minimize patient anxiety. Her other interests include Internal Medicine, Dentistry, and Feline Medicine. Dr. Reimers is owned by four cats and one dog- Beau, Diego, Nibbles, Scamper, and Iggy. Her favorite activities in the world include all things ocean related, especially snorkeling-which she finds especially ironic given Colorado’s proximity to the ocean. Her other interests include exploring locally and abroad, reading a good book while snuggled up with her pets, being involved in her church, and all things artsy.
