Jeremy Trousdale, DVM, Associate Veterinarian

DVM, Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine
Master's Degree in Anatomy, Colorado State


Dr. Jeremy Trousdale completed his undergraduate Biology degree in 1998 at Adams State College in Colorado. He furthered his studies and improved his bid for veterinary school by completing a Master’s Degree in Anatomy at Colorado State University, strongly influencing his strong interest in surgery. Dr. Trousdale received his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Ross University in 2007, for which the clinical year of training was again spent at Colorado State University.

After receiving his DVM, he traveled to Phoenix, where he completed a Rotating Internship in Small Animal Medicine at Sonora Veterinary Specialists, again strengthening the draw toward surgical specialization. He returned to Colorado yet again for a Surgical Intern position with Aspen Meadows Veterinary Specialists. He recently completed his Surgical Residency with VCA All Care Animal Referral Center in Fountain Valley, CA.

As a surgeon, Dr. Trousdale has many interests in soft tissue and orthopedic procedures, but does take special interest in wound management and reconstructive surgeries.

Dr. Trousdale enjoys spending his free time with his family and looks forward to having the opportunity to refresh his interests in outdoor activities and physical fitness.
