    Dr. Danielle Zwueste is a board-certified specialist in veterinary neurology whose clinical work focuses on small animals. She is responsible for the neuroloy clinical service at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine (WCVM) Veterinary Medical Centre. 

    Dr. Zwueste is originally from Alberta and obtained her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree from the WCVM in 2012. She completed a small animal clinical internship in Toronto in 2013 and then moved to Davis, California, where she completed a three-year residency in neurology/neurosurgery at the University of California, Davis. She became a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (Neurology) in 2016. 

    Dr. Zwueste returned to the WCVM in 2016 as an assistant professor in the college's Department of Small Animal Clinical Sciences. Her interests include advanced imaging, intracranial disease and feline neurology. 

    She has a cat named Holly; the pair found each other during Dr. Zwueste's fourth year at the WCVM when someone brought in a cat that had been hit by a car. After WCVM surgeons repaired the cat's broken jaw, Dr. Zwueste took her home and christened her Holly. Besides taking care of Holly, Dr. Zwueste enjoys reading, hot yoga and baking cookies, cupcakes — you name it.
