Jeremy Orr is board certified in Cardiology as a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine. He received his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from the Atlantic Veterinary College at the University of Prince Edward Island in Canada in 2004. He then went on to a small animal medicine and surgery internship at the Ontario Veterinary College at the University of Guelph in 2005. He spent the next two years working in general veterinary practice and emergency medicine in Toronto. He then went on to complete his three year cardiology residency at the Ontario Veterinary College in 2010. During his residency, he completed a research project investigating heart function in Boxer dogs affected with arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC). This exciting project allowed him to work with the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto in an effort to identify new genetic mutations which not only causes ARVC in Boxers, but also in people.
After completing his residency, Jeremy worked in a busy multi-specialty practice in Chicago until 2013. He is thrilled to be living in Colorado and working with such a dedicated team of cardiology professionals. Originally from Canada, he looks forward to being able to enjoy the many outdoor winter activities that Colorado offers – including one of Canada’s favorite winter past-times – curling! He is also willing to trade his affection for the Canadian hockey teams for the Colorado Avalanche! In his free time, he enjoys alpine skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, camping, jogging, traveling and spending time with his cat, Gibson.
