The veterinary team at Vida Veterinary Care is committed to providing exceptional care to pets of many shapes, sizes, breeds, and species. We know that some animal hospitals do not have this same commitment to comprehensive care and we hope to be the exception, providing complete care to all of your family pets.
Our Exotic Veterinarian
Meet Dr. Krista A. Keller, our exotic pet veterinarian at Vida Veterinary Care.
Krista was born and raised in New England. She attended Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine and spent her clinical year of veterinary school at Tufts University. After veterinary school, she pursued advanced training in companion animal medicine and surgery during a one year internship at Louisiana State University. Because her passion for animals and the human-animal bond was geared towards non traditional animals kept as companion pets (birds, reptiles, exotic small mammals, fish), Dr Keller enrolled in a 3 year advanced training residency program at the University of California, Davis specializing in companion zoological animal medicine and surgery. In 2014 Dr Keller became board certified in the American College of Zoological Medicine and is one of 8 veterinarians in the world to pursue specialization in Zoological Companion Animals. She has published several articles in national publications such as the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association and the Journal of Avian Medicine and Surgery and has spoken nationally and internationally on veterinary topics.When not treating birds, exotic small mammals, reptiles and more at Vida Veterinary Care, she is spending time with her 2 dogs (a pug and Brussels griffon), her 2 cats (one who thinks he is a dog), a leopard gecko, an ornery Veiled Chameleon and a cranky African Grey Parrot.
