Amanda Simonson, DVM, CVA

Veterinarian and Palliative Hospice Care Expert

I am a veterinarian passionate about helping animals. I practiced for 15 years in the hospital setting doing medicine, surgery, preventive care, acupuncture, and dentistry for primarily dogs and cats.

Over the last 2 years, I spend more time in the patient’s home environment, focusing on palliative hospice care, pain management, and in-home euthanasia. I cherish the relationship shared between people and pets. I feel honored to be part of this equation.  My husband, son, and I live on a ranch full of animals including dogs, horses, chickens, rabbits, and fish.
