Jamie Lenberg, DVM, Associate Veterinarian

DVM, Colorado State University


Dr. Lenberg was born and raised in Albuquerque.  While working as a veterinary assistant she pursued a B.S. in biology from the University of New Mexico. She then decided to further her education by obtaining a Masters degree in biomedical sciences and veterinary anatomy at Colorado State University, graduating in 2007.  She returned home for a year and dedicated her time towards working for the city's animal shelter as a surgical technician.  The following year she returned to Colorado and completed her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine at CSU in 2012.  During her journey through veterinary school she continued working as an emergency veterinary technician and also participated in many spay and neuter programs in under-served, rural communities in California.  During her senior year, Dr. Lenberg performed clinical research on canine parvovirus and presented her research findings at the American College Veterinary Internal Medicine conference in 2012.

After veterinary school, she completed a rigorous and competitive small animal medicine and surgery internship at VCA's prestigious flagship hospital in Los Angeles, VCA West LA.

After completing her internship she returned to Albuquerque and is dedicated towards client education and providing the best possible care to her patients! Dr. Lenberg's areas of special interest include internal medicine, neurology, feline medicine, and emergency medicine.

When not on the job, Jamie enjoys spending time with family and friends, hiking with her golden retriever named Charlie, cooking, playing volleyball and snowboarding.  She shares her home with Charlie, and her two cats Tobi and Savanna.
