Dr. Abbi Olson joined AMVC in June of 2016. Dr. Olson is one of our “mixed practice” veterinarians, visiting dairies in the morning and working in our small animal clinics in the afternoon. Her professional interests include dairy calf health, low stress cattle handling, dairy employee training, small animal preventative medicine and her absolute favorite: puppy visits!
Dr. Olson grew up riding horses, but started milking cows at the Washington State University and discovered her passion working with dairy cows. She obtained her BS in Animal Science and her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from WSU. In 2015, she attended an advanced dairy management program called the Summer Dairy Institute at Cornell University.
Being a Washington native, Dr. Olson is definitely making the most of her free time here in California. She enjoys snow and water skiing, hiking, horseback riding, and road trips. She has a cat named Oakie, and an Australian Shepherd named Miles, who happens to be the most beautiful dog on Earth… at least in Dr. Olson’s completely unbiased opinion!
