Dr. Alaina Carr received her veterinary medical degree from Washington State University in 2008. After graduation, she joined a small animal referral and emergency hospital for a year-long internship and then went on to complete a residency in Diagnostic Imaging at the University of California-Davis Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital. In addition to her clinical duties as a resident, which included clinical and didactic teaching of veterinary students, Alaina taught basic and advanced abdominal ultrasound to veterinarians through continuing education courses. She became board certified by the American College of Veterinary Radiology in 2012 and served as an acting faculty member at the University of California, Davis for 1 year. Throughout her post-graduate training, she has maintained active research projects that have culminated in published peer-reviewed manuscripts. Her particular research interests involve imaging of the feline urinary tract with ultrasound and computed tomography (CT). Dr. Carr is originally from Washington State and is very excited to be back in the Pacific Northwest. She lives with her husband and dogs. In her spare time Alaina can either be found at the barn learning the art of dressage, or in the mountains practicing her other hobby, landscape photography.
