Dr. Ballotti loves being a veterinarian because of the difference she can make in the lives of her clients and their patients. Her passions lie in small animal surgery and practicing medicine for avian and pocket pet species. Dr. Ballotti joins Black Forest Veterinary Clinic from Colorado State University with her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree. Upon graduating in 1992 she has worked in her native state of Colorado in the small animal daytime and emergency medicine; Dr. Ballotti has even provided some shelter work at spay and neuter clinics. When Dr. Ballotti isn’t treating her patients, she can be found at home with her husband and their furry children: a Basset hound, four cats, and 8 equines. A fun fact (or three) about Dr. Ballotti: she drives a team of Percheron horses with her husband; she trail rides with her mule, Blueberry; and she is also a master falconer.
