Dr. Kayomee Daroowalla, DVM
Dr. Daroowalla was born and raised in Bombay, India, where she lived until she was 14 years old. She decided to become a veterinarian at a very young age. She graduated from Colorado State University in 1999 as a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. All patients are treated with kindness and compassion. Her philosophy of integrating holistic and conventional medicine provides the animals with a level of treatment that surpasses using either one alone. Her commitment to help the strays is self-evident in the numerous hours and expense she donates to their care. Her own menagerie, all rescued animals, includes three dogs, three cats and two senior horses. She is passionate about scuba diving and her other hobbies include camping, playing Scrabble, gardening and reading.
