As an only female veterinarian in the area farmers were skeptical of her ability. Instead of getting discouraged, she chose what only a wise person would do. She believed in her veterinary skills and worked hard. Although it took the time she proved there is no gender discrimination when it comes to treating animals. And what better way than proving with her action and results. Over the years she has landed her skill to treat farm animals such as horses, pigs, cows, sheep, alpacas, goats, chickens, and even occasional reindeer. Dr. Brenda specializes in treating large animal fields.
