Dr. Green was raised in a family of woodworkers and cattle ranchers living in Colorado and the panhandle of Oklahoma. He attended The University of Northern Colorado in Greeley Colorado where he earned his Bachelor’s of Science degree in Biomedical Science and Chemistry before attending Colorado State University where he earned his Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine.
Dr. Green is happy to bring a variety of experiences to San Juan Veterinary Clinic. Upon graduation from veterinary school, Dr. Green practiced in a rural mixed animal practice in the San Luis Valley where he cared for a variety of animals including beef and dairy cows, reindeer, turkeys and many wonderful small animals. Dr. Green was also a passionate farrier for many years and still cherishes all cases of equine podiatry.
Dr. Green’s professional interests are broad but he has a special interest in small animal dentistry and equine dentistry. Dr. Green is one of our mixed animal practitioners so he is equally at home caring for horses, goats, alpacas and llamas and all of our amazing small animal patients.
Dr. Green spends his time away from veterinary medicine with his beautiful spouse Samantha and their incredible Wirehaired Pointing Griffon “Klaus”. You may find them fly fishing, canoeing, hiking, mountain biking, or any other excuse to be outdoors. The Green family absolutely loves the Western Slope and always enjoys experiencing this amazing region that they feel so lucky to live in.
