Dr. Dallas Astrin
Dr. Astrin completed her undergraduate degree at Penn State University and graduated in 2017 with a BS in Animal Science. She then continued on to pursue veterinary medicine at St. George’s University, on the beautiful island of Grenada. During her time on the island, she was involved in both emergency and critical care, as well as surgery organizations. After completing three years on the island, she finished up with her clinical year at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and graduated in June 2022.
Within veterinary medicine she has a strong passion for surgery, particularly soft tissue surgery, as well as a growing interest in neurology and cardiology. She is Fear-Free Certified, and she believes it is a very important concept to practice in order to provide the most comfortable, stress-free veterinary care to our furry friends!
Outside of veterinary medicine she lives at home with two shepherd mixes, as well as her little Caribbean pup! She enjoys spending time outdoors with her family and will often head over to the Port Jeff village with her dogs during the warmer months. She loves working out, and she is an avid runner. She also finds free time to read, watch her favorite TV shows and play video games. She is super excited to be starting with Countryside and looks forward to meeting everyone!
