Alison Forrest, DVM
As a child she decided that she wanted to help animals. The decision has never been challenged or usurped by any other career path. Dr. Alison Forrest fulfilled this calling in 2006 when she graduated from the University of Georgia. Knowing her own limitations, she then set out and completed an arduous yearlong internship. During that year she worked on being a compassionate, understanding, and skilled veterinarian. She has a strong interest in surgery and emergency medicine. She believes that a doctor never stops learning and never stops improving, therefore she continues to try and be better every day.
As a youth, Dr. Forrest published poetry in a collective anthology. She enjoys peaceful quiet moments. These days, as the owner, she finds herself working most of the time. When she does get a moment of down time she is at home with her family and chickens.

She lives with her 16 year old Yorkie named Callie, and recently adopted Tesla (aka: Kit Kat) an energetic tuxedo kitten.
