Alyssa Helms, DVM
Dr. Helms received her DVM degree, graduating with honors, from The University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine. Her focus on canine reproductive medicine was cultivated throughout her veterinary training through involvement with the local breeder community, canine research and her personal experience owning and exhibiting Australian Shepherds. Dr. Helms is an advocate for the health and preservation of the purpose-bred dog and she cares deeply for the breeder community that has supported her work through numerous scholarships, awards, and travel and research grants. Dr. Helms is grateful to the American Kennel Club, the AKC Canine Health Foundation and the Theriogenology Foundation for their support of her specialty training in Theriogenology. She firmly believes that the collaboration of these entities is invaluable in promoting the future health, research and preservation of our beloved dogs.
