Dr. McQuade graduated with her DVM from Colorado State University’s School of Veterinary Medicine. After graduation she moved to Maine and joined a mixed animal practice. After 8 years there, it was time to open her own small animal practice in Northern Maine. What started as a small single doctor practice rapidly grew into a busy 3 doctor practice. As there were no emergency or referral practices within a 7 hr drive, emergencies were seen 24/7. After 20+ years, it was time to come home to Colorado to be near family. She owned a physical rehabilitation practice in Glenwood Springs for a few years but missed the excitement of emergency medicine. Dr. McQuade worked in an emergency practice in Grand Junction for 6 years before becoming disillusioned with corporate veterinary medicine. She joined with like minded colleagues to open the Animal ER of the Western Slope and provide quality emergency critical care to the region’s pets.

During her free time, Dr. McQuade enjoys the outdoors with her family, horses, dogs, alpacas, and chickens. She has a special place in her heart for Bull Terriers and now raises and shows Bull Terriers whenever time permits.
