Mike Cohn DVM

He was born in Lawrence, Kansas and raised in Prairie Village, Kansas. A profound love of animals and no such thing as a routine day led him to choose veterinary medicine for a career. He attended vet school at KSU and graduated in 1988. On August 8, 1988, Dr. Cohn arrived in Idaho to work with small animals in clinics from Nampa to Boise. Idaho presented many outdoor activities that were close including skiing, hunting, fishing, hiking and white water rafting.

In order to expand his horizons and help animals in need he worked 2 years at the humane society. The 2 years of service provided many lessons, the most important being that 90% of the animals at the 'pound' were there because of behavior problems. On May 3, 1993 the Critter Clinic opened focusing on preventive medicine from spaying and neutering to behavioral issues from puppies and kittens to the geriatric pets and their individual needs

In '96 Dr. Thresher joined a private practice doing small animal medicine and surgery as well as working with local wildlife and continued working there until leaving California with her family in 2001.
