Dr. Cindy Richardson graduated from UW Madison- Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine in 1987 and started her veterinary career as a dairy and small animal veterinarian for 8 years at Hartford Animal Clinic in Hartford, Wisconsin. In 1995, despite the lack of dairy cows in Alaska, she moved to the Kenai Peninsula and settled in Sterling, where she spent 8 years hiking and exploring the Kenai Peninsula with 2 Airedale Terriers.
In 2004, Dr. Richardson relocated to Anchorage where she met her husband, Mark. During the next 6 years, she continued to be involved in emergency medicine, helping to move both Diamond Animal Hospital and Far Country Animal Hospital in Palmer from standard day time practices to 24/7 full service and emergency hospitals. In 2010, Dr. Richardson welcomed twin daughter and subsequently joined our team at Pet Emergency Treatment. In her spare time, Dr. Richardson spends time with family exploring the wilderness around Anchorage and Sterling and working hard at reading every good book ever written.
