Veterinary medicine has been an intricate part of Dana Navidonski’s life. She graduated with her doctorate from Michigan State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine in 1998. For the first part of her career, she practiced large animal medicine, working primarily with beef cattle. Although she greatly enjoyed working with horses and cattle, her passion was small animal medicine. Specifically, she takes pleasure in educating clients on animal health, behavioral concerns and training. Also, she has a passion for soft tissue surgical cases.
When she is not working, Dana enjoys spending time with her beautiful family. The crew consists of Christian, who is a realtor in the Grand Traverse area, and Isaac and Alexander her adorable sons.
Her four-legged children include “Lucy” – a squishy, brindle Pitbull, “Hannah” – a loveable, black and white Border Collie.
