Our Doctors

Krys Major-Lovan, DVM

Dr. Krys Major-Lovan graduated from Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1990. She went into emergency medicine for two years and then bought a solo practice in College Station, Texas, down the street from Texas A&M. She had the practice (Lovan Care Animal Hospital) for ten years and then obeyed her call to the mountains. She and her husband, Gary, moved to southwest Washington, where she worked in a small animal practice for ten years. Wanting to be closer to family, they moved to Colorado, where she worked temporary jobs in multiple practices for two years, and then found Evergreen Animal Hospital, which felt like home. Krys enjoys most aspects of small animal medicine and surgery, but her true love is anything feline. Her family includes two adult sons (Garrett and Brandon), one granddaughter (Evie), two kitties (Squirt and Randy), and she also has a horse (Sherman) who has his own veterinarian.

Bridget Roche, DVM

Dr. Bridget lived in Edinburgh, Scotland while getting her veterinary degree at Royal (Dick) Veterinary College. She enthusiastically excepted a job with Evergreen Animal Hospital. Bridget has had many jobs and externships throughout her veterinary education and has developed a keen interest in small animal surgery, dentistry, and internal medicine.

Certified Veterinary Technician and Manager of Cremation

Hello, my name is Joshua I have been a Certified Veterinary Technician going on 7 years this year. Evergreen Animal Hospital was my 1st job after graduating Bel-Rea Institute of Veterinary Technology in summer of 2012. Once I started my job at Evergreen Animal Hospital I knew this would be my home long term. On my days off I like to stay busy working outside in the yard when it is nice, pet sitting and letting other dogs play with my 4 dogs; Buddy, Dio, Achilles, and Katie. I also raise chickens, ducks and geese they are wonderful and have around and they all have their own personality. When I take vacations I like to go camping and fishing while exploring the Rocky Mountains. I have a few spots that I love but also like exploring new horizons.
