  Dr. Budiselic (pronounced Bew-di-selick) graduated from the WCVM in 2005 with Distinction.  She subsequently obtained certifications in Equine and Canine Veterinary Physical Rehabilitation, Veterinary Acupuncture, and more recently, Veterinary Pain Management (a certification that must be renewed every 5 years so practitioners stay up to date on current topics in pain management).   Dr. Budiselic is an avid athlete, and participates in endurance sports (trail running/cycling/long distance hiking), and she is certified as a human personal trainer and corrective exercise specialist.  As a veterinary rehabilitation practitioner, Dr. Budiselic has experience with all stages of canine mobility from puppy-hood to geriatrics.  She has experience treating cats and rabbits as well and loves seeing them in her treatment room.  All aspects of veterinary rehabilitation interest her, but she does have a soft spot for seniors, treating dogs with chronic conditions and palliative (end of life) care.  Sporting dogs are a definite interest as well as managing the day to day needs of puppies and adult dogs with an urban and rural lifestyle.  Dr. Budiselic has taught equine rehabilitation at the ARI in Florida, and has lectured on canine and equine rehabilitation.  She also enjoys mentoring DVM's interested in pursuing or expanding their career in the field of veterinary physical rehabilitation.  In her spare time, Dr. Budiselic splits her time between running mountain trails, getting bendy in the yoga studio and playing in her art studio.  Dr. Budiselic is also fond of growing and gathering medicinal herbs, and enjoys organic gardening all year round.  She is loved and adored by her feline accomplice Mimsy Denali.


Dr. Budiselic practices out of her home at Little Creek Veterinary Hospital with a wonderful team who supports her practice.
