Dr. Kirsten Crouch (Kraemer)
Dr. Kirsten Crouch was born and raised in beautiful Scottsdale, Arizona.

Dr. Crouch spent many of her younger years volunteering for the Arizona Game and Fish Department as well as Southwest Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, so her prior veterinary knowledge began early on with wildlife.

She completed her veterinary clinical year at Colorado State University. Her special interests include pain management, cardiology, clinical pathology, and parasitology. Additionally, Dr. Crouch has a special interest in learning other languages, and she is bilingual in English and Spanish.
