Meet the staff at Animal Therapy Center!
Rehabilitation is a team effort at the Animal Therapy Center. While your pet will be evaluated by our veterinarian on your first visit, you can expect to spend time with one or more of our team members over the course of your pet’s treatment. All staff meets regularly to discuss cases and share ideas for improved treatment plans.
Dr. Mayers is originally from Western NY. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Animal Science from Cornell University in 1992 and her veterinary degree from the University of Florida in 1997. Upon graduation, she moved to Chicago where she worked as a general practitioner for 15 years.
As a general practitioner, she had a strong interest in the care of senior pets. This interest expanded to include rehabilitation and alternative medicine when her own senior dog started to have mobility issues. Dr. Mayers completed her certification as a canine rehabilitation therapist in 2012. She recently helped establish a new rehabilitation facility in NC. In 2015, she received her certification in veterinary acupuncture.
