About Dr. Christina Cooper

Dr. Christina Cooper is a native New Mexican originally from Las Cruces. She received 3 bachelors degrees from NMSU in Animal Science, History, and Foreign Languages. She obtained her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Colorado State University in 2014.  After school she moved back to NM to be close to family, and started practicing on small animals and exotics in Albuquerque.

Pretty soon it was time to go out and start a practice on her own, with a focus and understanding of the needs of the under-served exotic species, hence Valle Verde Animal Hospital was born. Her professional interests include soft tissue surgery, exotic species medicine, and shelter medicine.

In her free time she loves to travel, spend time outdoors, reading, and hanging out with her array of pets at home. She recently got married in 2020, and is hoping to start a family soon. She is excited for this new challenging opportunity in life and is grateful to all her family and friends that helped her achieve it!
