Originally from Sulphur, Louisiana, Dr. Pulver attended Louisiana State University and was awarded her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 1983. Having previously practiced in the Treasure Valley, she purchased The Pet Hospital in February 2011.

 

She renamed the hospital Sunnyside Animal Hospital in honor of her faithful old border collie, Sunny, who passed away in 2009. Her veterinary interests include preventative care, internal medicine, soft tissue surgery, and geriatric care.

In her free time, Dr. Pulver enjoys cutting horse competition and maintaining her 40 acre farm where she has 3 dogs, 2 cats, 13 horses, and a plethora of chickens.

Meet the Team

Ashley - Certified Veterinary Technician

I grew up on the family dairy farm where my passion for animals and  work ethic developed. Knowing that helping animals is what I wanted to do, I attended the College of Southern Idaho Veterinary Technology program where I graduated top of my class in 2018. I then went on to get my certification and am now a Certified Veterinary Technician.

 

I have worked at Sunnyside Animal Hospital seasonally for the past 3 years while going to school, but I have been back full time since graduating. My favorite part of the job is getting to know the clients and all of their furry family members.

 

While I have always had animals growing up, I adopted my first pet to call my own the fall of 2016, a cat named Fin. After him, we adopted a Labrador named monkey and saved an abandoned kitten I named Jinx. Pets are my passion and I am dedicated to not only my own furry friends, but also all of our client’s!

Colleen - Receptionist

I have worked at Sunnyside for about 5 years on and off, I took 3 years off to help with my grandchildren and now work part time. I love working here and seeing all the different types of dogs and cats and meeting their “parents.”

 

My husband Ken and I currently have two pets, Hunter is our 9 year old Yellow Lab, we were fortunate to adopt Hunter right here at Sunnyside when his owners had to surrender him for various reasons. My husband thanks me weekly for bringing him home, he had secretly wanted a Lab for years. We also have a 12 year old Maine Coon cat named Buddy who adopted us when we found him stuffed in an underground utility box while we were living in Arizona. We recently lost our beloved dog Baxter to cancer he also found us in Arizona. We know when it comes time to think about another dog we will look at adopting another rescue.

 

The thing I like most about working at Sunnyside is the honesty and compassion Dr. Pulver shows to each client and never guilt’s anyone into performing tests or procedures she gives them the facts and lets them make an informed choice of treatment.
