Jerry V. White, DVM

Dr. White is our practice business owner and head veterinarian. He is a Colorado State University graduate, having done so with many distinctions. After two years in small animal practice, he was awarded a residency position in internal medicine at Michigan State University, and later, a research position at the University of Georgia. For seven years he taught internal medicine classes and conducted research involving drugs, diagnostics and nutritional management of kidney disease. His findings can be found in over 24 medical publications. This work was rewarding, but kept Dr. White away from his first love-- private practice. In 1989 he returned to Fort Collins with his wife, two daughters, two horses, two dogs, three cats, two birds, and a ferret to open the doors of Harmony Hospital for Pets!
