Dr. Matt Booth is an Alpenglow veterinarian in the emergency + critical care department. He was one of the original AVSEC owner partners. Dr. Booth grew up in Virginia Beach, VA and was an avid surfer and alpine skier. He attended the University of Georgia for undergraduate and veterinary school. During this time, Dr. Booth was employed as a veterinary technician at a general practice and the critical care unit at the university. This experience led Dr. Booth to recognize his passion for small animal emergency and critical care. Dr. Booth graduated veterinary school and had an unusual entrance to critical care and emergency medicine.
He began working in Augusta, GA where there was a great shortage of this type of veterinarian. Through mentorship by Dr. Roger Gfeller, DACVECC, Matt immediately became the primary emergency clinician for everything from motor vehicular trauma, to gun-shot wounds to massive bee envenomation. In 1999, Dr. Booth moved to Boulder County where he has continued to practice critical care, emergency medicine and surgery. Dr. Booth continued to desire a higher level of understanding of canine and feline patients. Through this desire he realized one of his professional goals after three years of rigorous case reporting and self directed studying. In December of 2011 he became a Diplomate of the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners in canine and feline practice.
Dr. Booth has the most wonderful wife in the world, a sweet daughter and wonderful son. He also has a cat named Bobby that he recently adopted from the Humane Society of Boulder Valley. Dr. Booth is also an avid kayaker and telemark skier. You might see him kayaking the creeks in Colorado or on the slopes of Eldora when he’s not helping pets at AVSEC.
