Danielle Eifler, DVM, DACVIM, Neurology, Certified Veterinary Neurosurgeon
Dr. Eifler performed her Bachelor of Science at the University of New Brunswick, Saint John in 1994 and was accepted early into the Veterinary Medicine Program at the University of Prince Edward Island due to outstanding academic achievement in 1997. She received her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in 2001 with honors. Dr. Eifler then went on to complete a general small animal internship at the University of Saskatchewan in 2002 and an Emergency Fellowship at Michigan State University in 2003. From 2003 to 2005 she practiced general veterinary medicine in Michigan while also participating in a research project funded by the NIH evaluating gene therapy for degenerative retinal disease in dogs.
Dr. Eifler attended the University of Missouri from 2005-2008 where she completed her residency in Veterinary Neurology/Neurosurgery and achieved the status of board certification in Veterinary Neurology at that time. Dr. Eifler is also one of the first veterinary neurologists to attain certification in veterinary neurosurgery. During her residency she was fortunate enough to work with the clinicians and researchers who both discovered the gene that causes degenerative myelopathy and developed the genetic test for this condition, an honor to her memory of Max.
