Kirsty Husby, DVM, MS, DACVS-LA
Dr. Husby was born in California, but spent her childhood years in South Africa. She grew up riding off-the-track-thoroughbreds (OTTBs) and participated in local jumper and eventing competitions. She moved back to the United States after high school, and lived in Washington state for several years before moving to Iowa and attending Iowa State University. She obtained a BS in Animal Science from Iowa State, and continued on at Iowa State for veterinary school. She always knew she wanted to work on horses, but during vet school she realized a great love for surgery and became a fixture in the equine hospital watching and assisting with surgeries any chance she could get. Following graduation from vet school she completed a one year internship at the University of Missouri, after which she remained on staff for an additional year doing ambulatory work and research on a synthetic cartilage implant in horse stifles. Dr. Husby then moved to Oregon and completed a Large Animal Surgery residency at Oregon State University. She also obtained a Masters of Science in Veterinary Science during her residency, evaluating the effects of low level laser light energy transmitted through equine skin to tendons. Dr. Husby remained on at Oregon State as a Clinical Instructor after her residency, and served as the Large Animal Emergency Clinician until November 2020 when she joined SLREH.
In her spare time, Dr. Husby likes to spend time riding her OTTB, hiking and running with her 2 dogs, and exploring the outdoors.
