Race Veterinarians

International Sled Dog Veterinarians for 2019 are both extremely qualified and experienced with sled dogs. Each veterinarian brings a wealth of experience and have secured other International Sled Dog Veterinary Association veterinarians to care for the sled dogs that come to Race to the Sky.  A big thanks to this year’s vets and techs:   

Dr. Kathy Topham and Dr. Phil Topham of Mantua, Ohio.   Kathy owns Pawsitive Results Animal Rehabilitation Center and  Phil owns Phillip Topham Veterinary Service.  This is the Tophams’ 7th year at Race to the Sky.

Dr. Cathy Davis of Helena, Montana has worked in canine sports medicine since 2012.  This is her first Race to the Sky.  Dr Davis runs the canine rehabilitation department at Alpine Animal Clinic in Helena.

Kevin Roxbury.  He resides in Stow, Ohio and is a 2005 graduate of Cuyahoga Community College in Parma, Ohio.  He currently works at Petfix, Northeast Ohio, a spay and neuter facility and has experience working as a zoo vet tech.
