Dr. Joan Moreau

Doctor of Veterinary Medicine

Joan Moreau, DVM

If you can imagine a dream being achieved, you will know what Dr. Joan is all about. Being able to practice medicine and help pets for over 30 years is more than most can give thanks for. Attachments to clients and their pets are joyful. Imagine being connected and fond of hundreds of dogs and cats!

A graduate from Michigan State University lead to a wonderful career in Michigan for 20 years. After contributing six years in animal shelter medicine at the Michigan Humane Society, Dr. Moreau owned the Auburn Animal Hospital in Rochester Hills. The lure of a better climate to ride her horses brought Dr. Joan to Santa Fe, and her current hospital clinic, Animal Wellness Center was opened. The primary goal of Dr. Joan’s is to continue to grow professionally and still be able to contribute years of practical practice experience to keep pets well.

When not riding one of her two quarter horses Sky and Cody, in the beautiful mountains and vistas of New Mexico, Dr. Joan enjoys her two dogs and five cats. Her adult sons are also a big joy in her life.

We are a phone call away. We hope your pet is well and look forward to meeting you and your dynamic dog or fabulous feline!
