Dr. Andrea Trujillo, DVM
Andrea Trujillo is from the small town of Las Vegas, NM. It became clear what she wanted to do with her life when she used her doctor's kit on her stuffed animals rather than her dolls. At age nine, her allergy and asthma specialist told her she could not be a veterinarian because of severe allergies to all animals. Many years, allergy injections, and inhalers later, she graduated from Colorado State University as a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in 2003.
Andrea is proud to have been part of the Smith Vet Hospital family. She enjoys the fine art of soft tissue surgery and the mystery and logic of internal medicine. It is the human-animal bond that makes veterinary medicine her passion as well as her career. She is a member of various professional organizations.
Dr. Trujillo enjoys reading and writing during her free time. She loves spending time with her husband Phillip, son Oscar, and dogs Walter and Payton.
