Dr. Mary Ann Archer graduated from Indiana University with a Bachelor of Science in Biology in 1995.
From there, she dedicated her life to the loving care of animals. In 2001, she received her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from the prestigious Purdue School of Veterinary Medicine.
Following her doctorate studies, the native Hoosier left her small hometown behind to make northern Colorado her new home. Dr. Archer’s career took her first to small animal medicine in a clinical setting, and later to emergency care. Her experience has covered everything from routine wellness checks and vaccinations to critical, life-saving surgeries.
After many years of long hours and non-traditional work schedules, Dr. Archer launched Loveland Veterinary Housecall Practice in an effort to enjoy life, and return to the work she loves most – and the things that drew her to be a veterinarian years ago. With a mobile, housecall veterinary practice, she’s excited to reconnect with clients and their pets – and to know her animal-patients in a way that allows for the best healthcare recommendations possible.
Dr. Archer’s housecall practice hearkens back to a day when veterinarians knew their clients by their first names, and built trusting, consistent relationships with the pets under their care. With a thorough understanding of their health history – and a preventative approach to care – Dr. Archer’s goal is to increase the quality and quantity of life for every animal she works with.
When she’s not driving door-to-door tending to patients and their owners, you might find Dr. Archer relaxing on the patio of her favorite Loveland restaurant with some delicious local fare, or caring for her large vegetable garden. She and her husband – along with their daughter and their dog, Cheyenne, and their new cat Jasper – also love to spend time in Colorado’s great outdoors. They often make time for camping, hiking, biking, and fishing as a family.
