Jennifer Reinhart, DVM, DACVIM (Grant 02325-E)
Mentor: Lauren Trepanier, DVM, PhD; University of Wisconsin, Madison

Dr. Reinhart received her veterinary degree from the University of Illinois, completed a small animal internship at Cornell University, and a small animal internal medicine residency at Kansas State University. She is a diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine and is currently pursuing a PhD at the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine.

The focus of Dr. Reinhart’s research is the identification of genetic and breed risk factors for sulfonamide hypersensitivity in dogs. She has identified a candidate gene and is working to validate this finding in hypersensitive dogs. This work also entails determining susceptibility in specific breeds (particularly the Doberman Pinscher).


Reinhart, J. M., Ekena, J., Cioffi, A. C., & Trepanier, L. A. (2018). A single-nucleotide polymorphism in the canine cytochrome b 5 reductase ( CYB5R3 ) gene is associated with sulfonamide hypersensitivity and is overrepresented in Doberman Pinschers. Journal of Veterinary Pharmacology and Therapeutics, (July 2017), 1–7.
