Dr. Christy Sandquist, Gresham Equine Veterinarian

Dr. Christy Burrell

Dr. Christy Burrell hails from the beautiful Applegate Valley in Southern Oregon. Horses have always been the center point of her life as an equestrian and in her career.

From a young age Christy relished her time in the saddle, whether it was exploring the beautiful Oregon landscape trail riding and horse camping or preparing for competition. Christy spent a number of years in 4-H, on her high school equestrian team, competing in open horse shows and representing Oregon State University on their intercollegiate equestrian team.

Christy’s professional training began at Oregon State University where she earned her bachelors degree in pre-veterinary medicine and equine sciences. Advancing her career, she then earned her Certified Veterinary Technician license in Oregon. Christy worked for years as a licensed technician in small animal emergency and critical care, small animal specialty surgery and all aspects of equine medicine.

With a passion for medicine and to further her education, Christy pushed herself to earn admission into veterinary school. Christy studied at Oregon State University College of Veterinary Medicine and graduated with honors. Thereafter she completed an equine internship at Pioneer Equine Hospital in California. This is where she received advanced training in equine internal medicine, surgery, sports medicine, emergency and critical care, advanced imaging (including digital radiology, ultrasonography, edoscopy, MRI and CT), general anesthesia, dentistry and reproduction. Christy is dedicated to and passionate about all aspects of equine medicine and serving her equine patients in any way she can.

During her free time Christy can be found out enjoying the wonderful outdoors. Her adventures consist of traveling, hiking, camping and spending time with her family and friends.
