VCA Black Mountain Animal Hospital

Jamie D. Augenstein, DVM, Associate Veterinarian

DVM, Oklahoma State University


Dr. Augenstein was born in California but raised in Oklahoma. She graduated from Oklahoma State University with a Bachelor of Science in Zoology in 1988. She then graduated from Oklahoma State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1994 and moved to Wichita, Kansas. After six months, she decided to relocate to the Las Vegas area where her sister and family lives. Dr. Augenstein's home is currently controlled by Jack the Pumpkin King and Panther Roo. Jack (D.O.B. April 2008) is a neutered male cat that was found as a stray kitten with ringworm. He was treated and hand raised by the staff at VCA Black Mountain Animal Hospital before Dr. Augenstein fell in love with him. Panther Roo (D.O.B. Jan 2009) was part of litter that came in as strays. Jack and Panther became buddies within minutes of meeting even though they are almost a year apart in age.
