Dr.Brett Hinsch DVM ABVP (emeritus)Dr. Hinsch knew he wanted to be a veterinarian at a very young age. He began his journey working at a small animal hospital in Ohio, cleaning cages. He completed his undergraduate work at Cornell University in upstate New York and received his DVM degree from the University of Missouri. He went on to become a Board Certified Small Animal Veterinarian, one of only a handful of veterinarians in the country to receive this prestigious degree. After starting several veterinary hospitals and training many new veterinarians and technicians he realized that one of his greatest accomplishments has been helping people through the emotional bond they share with their pets. One of his strengths has been developing treatment plans that served both the pets and their owners, with an emphasis on the pet’s comfort, coupled with a deep understanding of the emotional ties between the owner and their pet. Dr. Hinsch also served on the advisory board of Pima Animal Control and the Humane Society Board. There, he lobbied for the humane treatment of abandoned dogs and cats and helped develop a program for humane treatment of abandoned pets. (520) 284-2400
