About Adrienne Anderson

Dr. Anderson grew up in St. Louis, Missouri. She left for college to attend CU Boulder and majored in geography and anthropology. She subsequently went on to earn a Master’s degree in physical anthropology. With a long-held passion for animal care, she began working in veterinary medicine after graduation.

A painful cancer diagnosis in her own dog catalyzed a desire to be a veterinarian. She went back to school to complete the necessary coursework to apply to veterinary school.  She attended Colorado State University and became a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in 2019. She had both of her two beautiful baby girls during her education there.

She lives in Boulder, CO, with her two daughters and husband. Dr. Anderson has been practicing small animal medicine since graduation and is thrilled to now be able to combine her passion for communication, writing, and medicine to help a large population learn about and process topics in canine cancer.

My Dog

Ludo was my giant Great Dane Mix that I had before and through veterinary school. He helped me learn about medicine as much as he helped me learn about myself. I have had so many fantastic animals in my life, but there is something about his intuitive nature and our bond that is unique in a way that is impossible to put into words. He helped me through some of the most difficult years of my life and that connection will last forever.
