Dr. Ponsness practices at the Pend O’reille Vet Clinic in Ponderay, ID. She enjoys working closely with clients to meet the needs of their dogs, cats and small mammals. Her special interests include oncology, surgery, preventative care and specialty care of the geriatric family pet. She completed her undergraduate education at Whitman College in Walla Walla, WA prior to attending veterinary school at Washington State University. When she is not at the clinic, Chrissy and her family enjoy most things outdoors; such as boating, fishing, hiking, camping, skiing and snowboarding.
Dr. Ponsness joins Mandy today to discuss the challenges veterinarians face and how that can lead to veterinarian suicide.
