Dr. Furst’s passion for veterinary medicine extends into her childhood, where she spent a significant time bothering her family for more pets. Dr. Furst enjoys working with all animals, especially exotics. Some highlights of her training include working at the San Diego Zoo, Chimp Haven in Louisiana, Kruger National Park in South Africa, and a wildlife sanctuary in Bolivia; she has been privileged to learn from many incredible veterinarians around the world. Dr. Furst’s professional interests include surgery, preventative medicine, and exotic animal medicine. Dr. Furst graduated from the University of California, Berkeley with a degree in Integrative Biology and a minor in Global Poverty and Practice. She then chose to pursue her Degree of Veterinary Medicine in her home state at Colorado State University. She moved across the country for this practice due to its strength as a team in working with all creatures, and is very excited to now call the greater Buffalo area home. Outside of the office, Dr. Furst enjoys hiking with her very spoiled dog, Remi, snapping photographs while adventuring, and hitting the slopes in the winter.
