Julia Shorter


Dr. Shorter was born and raised in the beautiful Rocky Mountain basin town of Boulder Colorado.

Dr. Shorter remained adjacent to the mountains to obtain her Veterinary degree from Colorado State University of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. With a great passion for all shapes and sizes of animals, Dr. Shorter is licensed as a Mixed Animal Practitioner.

More specifically, Dr. Shorter adores soft tissue surgery, dentistry, and pain management (especially geriatric care). Dr. Shorter is also a strong believer in client education, from the very basics such as nutrition and behavior to more advanced chronic disease management. A strong believer in teamwork, Dr. Shorter loves working closely with her clients towards the shared goal of keeping their furry family members happy and healthy!

In her spare time Dr. Shorter continues to surround herself with animals, loving to spend time outdoors with her 3 dogs and 2 ferrets, who are harness trained! Additionally, she continues to ride her horse, although they are both retired from their previous career in jumping. Watching movies and painting are also some of her favorite past times. She is ecstatic to be able to join the amazing Archer Veterinary team and provide your loved ones with the very best care!
