She is the only area veterinary neurosurgeon to earn the certification based on years of clinical experience with live animals.
SARASOTA, Fla., Nov. 10, 2015– Dr. Anne Chauvet, a veterinary neurologist and founder of CriticalVetCare veterinary emergency and specialty center, has been awarded a neurosurgical certificate from the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (ACVIM) and is the only area veterinary neurologist to have achieved the certification based on years of clinical experience. Chauvet has been practicing neurology and neurosurgery for more than 25 years.
Chauvet is the owner of Veterinary Neuro Services and CriticalVetCare. Prior to forming her own practice, Chauvet spent five years as a clinical instructor in neurology and neurosurgery at the School of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Wisconsin in Madison where she conducted research on gene therapy for canine brain tumors. She also worked in California and Wisconsin for two years providing general veterinary health care as well as neurology and neurosurgery care.
Chauvet earned her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon, Canada, in 1990. She completed a small animal medicine/ surgery internship at the University of Illinois in Urbana in 1991 and finished her residency in neurology/neurosurgery at the University of California, Davis, in 1993.
The ACVIM certification may be awarded in one of two ways. Chauvet earned her certification through the expertise she gained from more than 25 years of performing neurosurgeries. Less experienced veterinary neurologists may also gain certification by taking a course on cadaver animals and caseload.
