Liza Guess, DVM
Dr. Liza M. Guess earned her undergraduate degree from the University of Findlay and graduated from The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2007. She worked for 6 years in a mixed animal practice in southern Ohio before spending 8 years at OSU’s College of Veterinary Medicine as an Assistant Professor in Community Practice and Dentistry. Her professional interests include veterinary dentistry, soft tissue surgery, cat behavior, and low-stress handling techniques.
Dr. Guess says, “Like many veterinarians, I wanted to be a vet since I can remember. Growing up, I loved reading and James Herriot was my inspiration. I went into vet school wanting to do mixed animal practice. I always thought I was a dog person. I was allergic to cats and never owned any growing up. After graduation, I received allergy shots and was adopted by some cats. Then I attended an event lead by Dr. Sophia Yin, which made me interested in cat behavior along with low-stress handling techniques. I came to understand cats better, which made me fall in love with them. Now I have been completely converted into a cat person. I think cats are misunderstood and intriguing creatures. I love how they can be simultaneously majestic and ridiculous at the same time.”
