Dr. Doub has her own practice, Union Park Veterinary Hospital, in Salt Lake City, Utah where the motto is “to treat your pets like members of our family”. Her patients receive the most progressive ethical and medical care. Dr. Doub is a member of the Humane Society Veterinary Medical Association and the American Veterinary Medical Association.
Dr. Doub joined the Paw Project’s efforts to end declawing when she realized that there were other veterinarians like her who were pushing to end the inhumane practice of declawing. Dr. Doub is proud that she has never declawed and never will. Dr. Doub established the Utah chapter of the Paw Project with the goal to use evidence-based medicine to change professional veterinary standards. Paw Project-Utah has garnered support in the Salt Lake community and has connected with ethically-minded veterinary professionals nationwide. Dr. Doub is excited to work with the Paw Project team to form a growing group of veterinarians and animal advocates who are leading their communities toward more ethical treatment of animals, including an end to declawing.
