Originally from Minnesota, Dr. Annie Thiessen obtained a Bachelor of Science from Montana State University and a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Washington State University in 1999. She joined our team in 1999 and feels fortunate to work with Chambers Creek's exceedingly strong, capable, and fun medical team. She is committed to the human-animal bond and helping pets maintain or achieve an excellent quality of life. Her special interests include oncology, feline medicine, internal medicine, and geriatrics. Dr. Thiessen is the Medical Director for the rescue organization, Kindred Souls Foundation, and the acting Press Secretary for the "Thiessen Cat Dynasty," Carlos and Lyle. When not working, she can be found traveling to obscure locales with her husband, Philip, and running every stretch of road and trail she finds.
