Dr. Brittany Alvillar is a Colorado native from Littleton, CO. At a very young age she had a special love for animals and at the age of 10 she knew she wanted to be a vet. With that goal in mind, she received her B.S in Biology and Zoology from Colorado State University in 2006, and an M.S. in Biomedical Science and Neurobiology in 2007. During this time she became very interested in the nervous system and how it related to chronic pain management. Dr. Alvillar continued at CSU and earned her D.V.M in 2011 where she graduated magna cum laude and was recognized for achievement in anesthesiology. With her interest in the nervous system and pain management, Dr. Alvillar took an additional course during veterinary school to become certified in veterinary medical acupuncture. This form of acupuncture applies an understanding of neurobiology to help relieve pain and improve musculoskeletal and neurologic dysfunctions.
For her first year in practice Dr. Alvillar did an internship at VCA Alameda East Veterinary Hospital in Denver (you might recognize this hospital as the one from Animal Planet's Emergency Vets). During this intense year of medical training she got the chance to work with specialists in emergency medicine, internal medicine, cardiology, oncology, and surgery.
Even though she loves nearly every aspect of veterinary medicine, Dr. Alvillar's special interests include: emergency medicine, pain management, internal medicine, feline medicine, acupuncture, and
She is especially passionate about preventing disease through all of the different stages of life. Dr. Alvillar is excited to be back living in Fort Collins with her husband, David, and their cats, Corporal Kangaroo, Little Miss, and Scrumpy. In her spare time she enjoys running, hiking, cooking, wine pairing, independent movies, and spending time with her family.
Dr. Deramus is a Colorado native, born in Denver and raised at the foot of Pikes Peak, in Cascade, Colorado. As a child, she spent the majority of her time running around the mountains and collecting a menagerie of animals, including a tarantula, multiple snakes and turtles, and a short horned lizard. Her first job was working as the petting zoo keeper at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, where she took care of 10 African Pygmy Goat kids, several sheep, and a Sardinian Donkey. She received her undergraduate degree from Colorado State University in Wildlife Biology and spent time working as a field biologist for the Forest Service and U.S. Geological Survey in Colorado, Wyoming, and Idaho and the University of Bern in Switzerland. She has also completed an apprenticeship in organic farming through the University of Missouri and Kansas State University and worked on an organic farm for two years. Dr. Deramus was a veterinary technician for several years prior to starting veterinary school and worked with Dr. Steyn at her old practice.
Dr. Deramus received her veterinary degree from Colorado State University in 2014. Her professional interests include; preventative care, internal medicine, hospice care, dentistry, and acupuncture. She obtained certification in acupuncture through the Medical Acupuncture for Veterinarians at CSU in her last year of veterinary school and maintains active memberships in the AVMA, AAHA, Veterinary Business Management Association, and the cVMA.
She currently resides in Fort Collins, is married, and has one daughter who is in middle school. Her current animals include a Mexican street dog named Tope Roo, a reservation dog named Monkey, a Maine Coon cat named Malachi, and a Mini Rex rabbit named Jingles. Her hobbies include gardening, snowboarding, hiking, reading, and enjoying good beer.
