Dr. Odette O graduated from the University of Guelph (2001) with a Bachelor of Science in Biology. She earned her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from the University of Guelph, Ontario Veterinary College (2004). After a number of years spent in small animal general practice, Dr. O completed her residency in Anesthesia and Pain Management at the University of Wisconsin – Madison and became board-certified in anesthesia and analgesia (2013).
Dr. O believes Anesthesiology is as much as it is an art, as it is a science. Being able to assess each patient individually and formulate a plan that best suits their specific needs is both the challenge and the beauty of Anesthesiology. The chance to be an integral part of the care team to support both the needs of the patient as well as fellow specialists is truly rewarding to her.
Her anesthesia-related interests include the practical aspects of clinical anesthesia and pain management, as well as anesthesia of unusual species and acupuncture. She prides herself in optimizing patient care and also enjoys teaching anesthesia-related topics to students, technicians, and fellow veterinarians. Dr. O is also an active member of the American College of Veterinary Anesthesia and Analgesia (ACVAA) including serving as a member of the Board of Directors, Abstract Coordinator, and numerous other committees over the years.
