Jennifer Aker, DVM

Part-Time Associate Veterinarian
Jennifer Aker, DVM

Dr. Jennifer Akers is a K-State alumni graduating from the veterinary program in 2009. But She isn't your ordinary general practice veterinarian, she has also completed training in mixed animal acupuncture fro the Chi Institute and animal chiropractic from Options for Animals. 

Dr. Akers started practicing veterinary medicine here at University Veterinary Care Center in 2019 and in her free time, she enjoys playing and coaching volleyball, participating in competitive endurance horseback riding, and spending time with her husband and two children.

When asked what her favorite part of the job is, she told us

" I enjoy the flexibility of animal chiropractic and acupuncture, meaning there are multiple options for treating a patient and it allows me to work more with the patient, not on the patient."
