Dr. Christina Ramirez

Diagnostic pathologist

Christina joined our team in 2014. She is an ACVP board certified pathologist and provides exceptional service. Her primary focus is diagnostic pathology but she also provides excellent imaging and images editing for our research clients to use for publication. Currently, Christina is using her more than 13 years in the industry focusing on canine genetic disorders. Christina received her DVM from Washington State University in 2010 and then continued on to complete her residency at the College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Missouri, Columbia, MO. Christina is able to perform necropsy services for local clientele in the Spokane Valley location and having her on our team is a real benefit to all of our clients. She truly enjoys anatomic pathology and her reports are top notch.
