Dr. Allison Deatherage obtained her veterinary degree from the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine in 2018. She then completed five years of post-doctoral training in Small Animal Internal Medicine and satisfied the requirements to sit for the board-certification exam in June 2023. Her tireless enthusiasm for veterinary medicine naturally shines through in her commitment to well-rounded veterinary care by delivering high-quality medical care and an inclusive experience for both her clients and referral partners.
Dr. Deatherage dedicated her career to internal medicine with the ultimate goal of preserving and protecting the human-animal bond throughout a lifetime of inevitable disease. "My patients often require extended to life-long treatment of both known and unknown diseases that are typically both frustrating to diagnose and even more complicated to treat." Her approach to medicine is education-focused to ensure clients understand the what/how/why behind all of her recommendations from the beginning. She believes that informed decision making builds trust, understanding, and confidence in an otherwise frightening time, allowing clients to focus on their pet's care.
While Dr. Deatherage loves all aspects of internal medicine, her primary interests include, but are not limited to, hepatobiliary disease, endocrinopathies, immune-mediated disorders and the infamous internal medicine conundrums known as "nebulopathies."
