Dr. Deanna Post
Having grown up on a farm/ranch in southwest Kansas it was no surprise Dr. Post wanted to become a veterinarian. She was riding horses and helping her father work cattle as soon as she was big enough. Dr. Post graduated from Kansas State University in 1989 and went on to work in multiple small animal practices and personally owned 2 solo small animal practices. Her joy is starting puppies and kittens out on the right path and then helping them live a comfortable and enjoyable life as they age.
When not working, Dr. Post is found taking care of her 3 house dogs, one of which is blind due to Glaucoma, her 2 house cats, one being diabetic, her 6 barn cats, her donkey that she adores, and her 10 American Saddlebreds. Her goal is to raise beautiful well-bred Saddlebreds that someday will become world champions.
She loves New Mexico and the beauty it has to offer and looks forward to each day she gets to work with Dr. Mack and Valencia Animal Clinic staff and looks forward to meeting everyone and their precious pets.
