Dr. Sam Grossberg
Dr. Sam Grossberg moved to Colorado after graduating from the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary
Medicine at Virginia Tech. His passion for animals stemmed from growing up with dogs and cats at home while traveling to many National Parks from a young age, marveling at nature and wildlife. Dr. Grossberg attended the University of Wisconsin as an undergraduate studying wildlife, conservation, and animal health. He is an advocate of the One Health approach to life and medicine that recognizes the inextricable links between animal, human, and environmental health.

He has previously been on veterinary trips to South Africa and India working with both companion animals and wildlife.
When Dr. Grossberg is not caring for your ‘furbabies’ he enjoys being active in the outdoors. He is an avid hiker, bird watcher, snowboarder, and soccer player. He lives in Longmont with his partner Bibi and their dogs Wilbur and Gouda.
