Jamie Matsuura,</br> DVM  photo

Jamie Matsuura,

Dr. Matsuura is a native of Idaho; growing up in the rural part of Blackfoot, she was always surrounded by animals. She completed her Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from the University of Oregon and Idaho State University. After graduating from Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine (right alongside Dr. Alicia Ewing!), she spent three years practicing small animal medicine in Winnemucca, Nevada. Her focus hasn’t necessarily been on any one specific skill or area of veterinary medicine; rather, on the quality of care and experience provided to both patient and client. Dr. Matsuura strives to understand the unique needs of each individual, and together with the entire Snake River Vet team, will meet those needs. Outside of her career, Dr. Matsuura has always had a love for horses and riding. While her teenage years were spent in the hunter/jumper ring, she now enjoys training in dressage with her mare, Grace. She and her husband, Andy, have unsurprisingly, accumulated several pets as well—two dogs and two cats make up the remainder of the household. She also enjoys traveling, baking and cooking, and being a member of the local Crossfit gym.
