Customized strengthening and treatment plans for working dogs, show dogs, companion animals and dogs recovering from injury.


Dr. Putt grew up in Santa Cruz, CA. As a child, she was found following bear cubs around Yosemite Valley campgrounds late at night, making friends with any wild critter she would come across, and fostering way too many shelter animals at a time. Dr. Putt completed her bachelors in animal science at University of California, Davis in 2011 and continued to complete her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine, graduating with honors as top ten in her class and member of Society of Phi Zeta, Lambda Chapter, from the University of California, Davis in 2016.


Following veterinary school, she went on to become Certified in Veterinary Acupuncture (CVA) from the Chi Institute in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). In 2017, Dr. Putt started her own mobile large animal veterinary business treating predominately food production animals, high value livestock show animals and performance horses.

In 2020, Dr. Putt’s first kid, a Hanoverian horse named Carpe Luna (affectionately known as ‘kid’) that she has had since he was six month old, developed neurologic symptoms and was diagnosed with EPM (Equine Protozoal Myeloencephalitis). Despite aggressive treatment for four months with Western medication, he did not improve. At this point, Dr. Putt discontinued Western treatment and started Traditional Chinese Medicine, including acupuncture and Chinese herbals. Within three weeks of switching to strictly TCM, Dr. Putt received calls from four separate new clients with horses in the same situation as Kid. Through committed and aggressive TCM treatments, all four horses are back to competing and riding difficult technical trails in the backcountry, and yet Kid failed to fully resolve. This drove Dr. Putt to further her education and skill set and get Certified in Veterinary Spinal Manipulative Therapy (CVSMT aka chiropractic) at the Healing Oasis Wellness Center (HOWC), followed immediately by becoming Certified in Veterinary Massage and Rehabilitation Therapy (CVMRT) through HOWC. It was during the year of learning and becoming certified in these modalities that Dr. Putt found her true passion of sports medicine and rehabilitation therapy.

In the beginning of 2022, Dr. Putt opened Sundance Sports and Rehab and now Dr. Putt works almost solely on dogs, predominantly high level competition dogs and working canines (police K9), as well as, companion pet dogs, including gariatric pups and those recovering from spinal or knee surgery or those wanting puppy strengthening to set them up for success. Dr. Putt still sees some horse clients for sports medicine and rehab. In her free time, Dr. Putt enjoys traveling with her husband, camping, hiking, fly fishing, gardening, and keeping her horse ‘Kid’ and Frenchie named Layla as happy and comfortable as possible.
