Dr. Amanda Gruber was born and raised in Arnold, MO. She received her BS in Biology and Equine Science at William Woods University (WWU) and her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Missouri. She graduated in 2018 and spent a year practicing equine medicine in Kansas before deciding to move back home. Horses and cats have always been her two great loves and she decided it was time to make the switch to feline medicine.
Dr. Gruber and her husband, Trevor, have four wonderful cats, Doodle, Mao, Finn and Gideon, a highly entertaining (and mischievous) horse, Bien, and a retired horse from WWU, Eli. Dr. Gruber loves to spend her free time riding and training horses, reading a good book, snuggling with her cats, and acting as a glorified treat dispenser for Bien and Eli.
After many years of successful retail management Marsha Freesh decided it was time to invest in something she cares about, animals. Currently, she has two pets of her own, both rescues. Big Wig is a Maine Coon mix. He followed Marsha’s daughter home one day and the rest was history. Louie is a Mastiff mix adopted from APA. It was a short 30 minute visit before Louie found himself at home in the backseat. When she is not at the clinic, she enjoys tending to her garden full of banana trees, working out, or spending time with her husband,Jared, who is Dr. Freesh’s oldest son. Road trips to the beach or hiking are the best. A quiet evening cooking a new recipe together followed by an interesting TV show or movie is a close second.
