Jeremiah Easley, DVM, DIPL., ACVS
Keeping the veterinary profession in the family, Jeremiah Easley chose an equine career similar to that of his father. His interests have always been varied, having started his college education as a Studio Art and Environmental Studies Major at Dennison University where he continued his high school love of competitive swimming. He transferred to The College of Charleston as a sophomore and graduated in 2002 with a degree in Biology. After graduation, he worked as a research assistant at the Marine Biology Graduate School before deciding that veterinary medicine was his calling.
Jeremiah received his DVM from the VA-MD Regional College of Veterinary Medicine, Blacksburg, VA, in 2007. Having tracked in equine, Jeremiah accepted a one year internship with Equine Medical Center of Ocala in Ocala, FL, after graduation. An equine surgical residency at the University of Florida in Gainesville, FL, was the next step in his career where he chose a concentration dealing with advanced diagnostic imaging utilizing musculoskeletal ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging. Upon finishing his residency the summer of 2011, Dr. Easley joined his equine veterinarian wife, Dr. Jennifer Hatzel, at Colorado State University where they are both employed. Presently, he serves as the Assistant Director and a Principal Investigator for the Preclinical Surgical Research Laboratory at CSU. He received his surgery credentials from the American College of Veterinary Surgeons in February 2012.
As a clinician at CSU, he consults on many cases involving dental or sinus-related problems, many of which require advanced diagnostic imaging such as computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging. He serves as a clinical consultant for Animal Imagining, Inc. in Weatherford, TX, which is the only imaging facility in the US that is equipped with a standing CT unit. Dr. Jeremiah Easley’s interests and skills surrounding imaging are utilized by our practice and he serves as a consultant on cases requiring expertise in these fields. He has published numerous articles and presented papers at professional continuing education programs. Jack and Jeremiah assist one another in surgery, in wet labs, and with CE programs–particularly if it relates to dentistry or the oral cavity.
