Dr. Allison Jenkins wasn’t born in Colorado, but she got here as fast as she could. She graduated with Honors from Texas A & M University in 1999, then immediately moved west to the mountains. Allison worked as a veterinary technician in Crested Butte before starting veterinary school at Colorado State University. During vet school, Allison was chosen to participate in a wildlife research program in South Africa, under the direction of world-renowned wildlife vet, Dr. Cobus Raath. Over a two-year period, she also conducted equine toxicology research on Easter Island. Dr. Jenkins received her veterinary degree from CSU in 2004. She then spent the first two years as an equine vet in Oregon and Texas before finding her true calling in small animal veterinary medicine.
Dr. Allison Jenkins moved back to Colorado in 2010, where and when she met her husband, Ashton. They spent their newlywed year restoring the 1890 Victorian at 3727 W. 32nd Ave. to create a space where pets could feel safe and cared for. In 2013, Highlands Animal Clinic was born. Dr. Allison and Ashton (and their 2 dogs, Cash and Greta) lived upstairs for 2 years after the clinic opened and loved becoming a part of the neighborhood.
Allison and Ashton are the grateful parents of two amazing human children, River and Beau. They are also the guardians of a rescue Pyrenees mix, Stevie; the clinic kitty, Jemmy; Allison’s horse, Casey and an English Lab, Jerry.
Dr. Allison Jenkins is a resident and cheerleader for the Highlands neighborhood. She feels lucky to have found her place in this community and looks forward to serving you and your pets.
