Dr Permenter is a Boise native who grew up working with horses. After achieving her Doctorate from Washington State University she spent an additional year in an internship at Anoka Equine Veterinary Services in Minnesota where she worked closely with seasoned veterinarians.
She then moved back to Idaho with her husband and started Desert Sage Equine, a mobile equine business. She joined Ada Animal Hospital in August, 2012 to help fill-in while another Dr was on medical leave. She quickly became a favorite with clients and staff making the transition to a regular full-time Doctor at AAH inevitable!!
She keeps very busy as she still has a very successful equine business as well as achieving certification in acupuncture and equine chiropractic services. Dr. Permenter has greatly enhanced our practice due to her additional training in integrative medicine and has assisted many pets and owners with her knowledge.
She and her husband share their home with multiple four-legged furry “children” including two mini-aussies named Ginger and Trip. They love spending time outdoors and you may occasionally see one or both of them out on the trails or at local equine gatherings where they enjoy spending time with their own horses and friends.
