Professional Designations & Industry-based Accomplishments: Production Animal Medicine (PAC) member AVC member Canine Stifle Stabilization Course attendee at the Translational Medicine Institute and Colorado State University. "The Man in the Arena", Theodore Roosevelt "It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." Dr. Ty loves to help people. Helping a livestock producer add value to their operation, fixing a broken leg, finding out what has been making a dog sick for weeks and no-one else could solve it, helping a team-member be better at there job, these things make it fun and fulfilling to be a veterinarian. We want to become better people and animal health specialists every day, we strive to provide the best service possible, and are committed to life-long learning and providing the most up to date medicine and surgery.
