Dr. Jennifer Estle, DVM

Dr. Estle was born and raised in Bennington, New Hampshire on her family's 60+ acre farm. She has recently moved back to raise her girls in the beautiful Monadnock region.

Dr. Estle received her Bachelor of Science degree from Colorado State University and her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Atlantic Veterinary College at the University of Prince Edward Island. Since graduating in 2008 she has worked at a high-paced general practice that also specializes in several areas of small animal medicine and surgery. During that time she was a lead surgeon and general medicine veterinarian, gaining a strong foundation in all areas of general practice and emergency medicine.

Dr. Estle loves all aspects of veterinary medicine but has a passion for canine reproduction. She is especially focused on studying hormone levels in relation to ovulation timing, which aides in successful conception. She has been a member of the Society for Theriogeneology for several years. This group consists of veterinarians who are dedicated to animal reproduction. She has been formally trained by the International Canine Semen Bank (ICSB) in Oregon and Mini Tube of America for procedures such as semen shipment and freezing, surgical and transcervical artificial insemination and epididymal harvest. In addition to the reproduction specialty, she has a strong interest in soft tissue surgery. She is certified in Laser, PennHip and Stem Cell Therapy.

Dr. Estle's goal is to continue to develop and expand her experience both in reproductive services and general practice.

During her off time Dr. Estle loves spending time with her husband, Scott, and their two young daughters, Charlotte and Lillian. Her furry family consists of 3 dogs, 2 cats, 5 goats, 2 horses and 15 chickens. She and her family enjoy farming, snowshoeing, horseback riding, hiking and swimming together on their farm in Bennington.
