Dr. Deborah Moore, Dr. Kristin Fornara

Dr. Kristin Fornara

Dr. Fornara is an Arizona native who graduated from Arizona State University in 2007 with a degree in agribusiness. Her passion for animals and veterinary medicine led her to St. George's University School of Veterinary Medicine. She is a 2012 graduate from St George's, and she completed her clinical training at The Ohio State University. She returned to Arizona as a veterinarian in 2012 and spent the past four years as a small animal veterinarian in the East Valley. Dr. Fornara spent time as a relief veterinarian at Alta Mesa in 2015, and made the decision to transition to full time here based on the high quality of medicine being practiced. She has a special interest in veterinary dentistry, having completed additional training in small animal dentistry through University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine. She is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association and the Arizona Veterinary Medical Association. Her outside interests include traveling, hiking, going to concerts, and cheering on her favorite sports teams (Go Cards!). She also enjoys spending time with family and friends, and spoiling her dogs: Yogi, a Dachshund, Tucker, a Labrador Retriever, and her two rescue Chihuahuas Bella and Maximus.


Dr. Deborah Moore

Dr. Moore considers herself an Arizona “yo-yo” native. She was born in Arizona but moved around a lot due to her father’s military career. As an adult, she has also moved around a bit but she keeps coming back to her home, Arizona. She completed her undergraduate education in Hawaii on the beautiful North Shore of Oahu. After graduating, she worked in the conservation field for an environmental consulting company. Her love o f animals eventually led to study veterinary medicine at Ross University. She completed her clinical studies in Oregon, and she has been practicing in Arizona since 2008. She loves interesting medical cases and strives to work with and educate pet “parents” in order to provide the best possible care for their furry loved ones. She currently has a full house with her kids (both the furry kind and the people kind) and her husband. She is an avid reader, especially fantasy fiction and is a fan of Marvel Comics and Joss Whedon’s “Firefly”.
