Exactly who is taking care of your beloved pet when you come to Four Seasons? When you entrust your pet’s care to us, rest assured, our team will work together to provide the absolute best approach for you. That may mean anything from emergency surgery, overnight observation in the ICU, or, perhaps, sending them home for palliative care. We work with you to create the plan that is right for your situation, your circumstance, and right for your furry friend.
We want you to get to know our staff so we’ll be introducing them here over time. In veterinary medicine, only a select few go into a specialty and become board-certified in their field, and Four Seasons has a seasoned staff of board-certified veterinarians and certified veterinary technicians. Our elite team is led by Dr. Jennifer Lowry and Dr. Tara Britt, the owners of 4SVS.
Dr. Jennifer Lowry makes her home in Fort Collins where she began her mobile radiology practice, Mountain Veterinary Imaging, in 1994. MVI brought critical diagnostic expertise to family veterinarian practices far and wide, providing ultrasounds and echocardiograms to dogs and cats (and bunnies and ferrets) in northern Colorado. Through the years, Jennifer has taught radiology both at CSU Veterinary School and at the University of Illinois. She is a graduate of vet school at UC-Davis, and achieved her radiology internship and Master’s degree at CSU, becoming one of just over 400 board-certified radiologists in the United States.
The same passion Jennifer has for vet med, she brings to her music, gardening, skiing and biking. Her three children share her hobbies (or she shares theirs). She has two fun-loving dogs and a tail-less cat to round out her home. If you chance upon a tour of 4SVS, you’ll notice Jennifer’s influence in the color scheme: lots of rich purple hues.
Dr. Tara Britt is an elite surgeon on the cutting edge as a member of ACVS, the American College of Veterinary Surgeons. She graduated from the University of Pennsylvania Vet School and continued her education with a surgical oncology fellowship at CSU. With expertise in the latest surgical interventions, Tara believes treating each patient individually, and utilizes minimally invasive procedures such as arthroscopy, laparoscopy, and thoracoscopy when appropriate. Tara began Summit Veterinary Surgery in 2012 providing mobile surgery in Fort Collins, Greeley and Loveland.
Whenever she can carve time into her schedule, Tara takes yoga classes, swoops downhill on skis, and keeps the garden free from weeds. She has two beautiful daughters and a husband who is a veterinarian pathologist.
While they are busy being doctors during the day, and occasionally into the night when emergencies arise, both Jen and Tara emphasize the importance of finding balance in life for themselves and everyone on staff. Together they have created a special place that is professional and safe and colorful and welcoming. ~ Jane, May 11, 2014
