Jennifer Bando, DVM
Originally from Canada, Dr. Jennifer Bando received her Bachelor of Science from the University of Guelph and graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College in 2001. She practiced in northern Ontario at a rural mixed animal clinic before joining the Homer Veterinary Clinic in 2006. She is dedicated to providing the highest quality of compassionate care to her patients and has developed a loyalty to the local community.
Dr. Bando’s professional interests include ultrasound, soft tissue and orthopedic surgery, internal medicine, and preventive health care management through optimizing nutrition and wellness. She also provides care to our equine, small ruminant and exotic patients.
For several winters, she has volunteered as a trail veterinarian for the Iditarod sled dog race and enjoys the challenge of working with canine athletes. She has also volunteered with Alaska Rural Veterinary Outreach (ARVO), a non-profit group dedicated to educating and advocating for Alaska’s remote rural pets.
An avid outdoors explorer, she can often be found skiing, cycling and hiking in the beautiful Alaskan backcountry with her husband Jason and their two border collie mixes, Kiva and Miso, followed by relaxing by the wood stove with her cat Blinky.
