Dr. Jessica Bridge DVM

Hometown: Grand Junction, CO
Pets: Dr. Bridge has a zoo of her own at home, between her six cats (who are all named after Top Gun characters), two geriatric horses, and a dog. She is hoping to add more to the family!

Dr. Jessica Bridge is a Grand Junction local and studied at CSU in Fort Collins for school. She has always loved working with animals and developed an interest in medicine, and on top of that, her love for public health and food safety lead her to become a veterinarian. She is very interested in the cow business, and is excited to offer that type of practice to our clientele.

When Dr. Bridge isn’t busy at work she is enjoying her time with her children. Her other interests include hiking, camping, gardening, sewing and shootin’!
