2019 Lifetime Achievement

Dr. Julie Dechant, DVM, MS, DACVS

Dr. Julie Dechant, DVM, MS, DACVS graduated from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Saskatchewan in 1996.  After completing a private practice internship in her home province of Alberta, she moved to Fort Collins, Colorado to complete a combined Masters and clinical residency in Large Animal Surgery at Colorado State University from 1997 to 2000.  After her residency, Dr. Dechant joined the Large Animal Surgery faculty at the University of Saskatchewan for a 1-year position as a Clinical Associate.  From 2001 to 2004, she was a Visiting Assistant Professor at Oklahoma State University where she was an emergency clinician.  In 2004, Dr. Dechant was offered an emergency surgery position at University of California-Davis, initially in a Lecturer position and now in a Clinical Faculty position.  Dr. Dechant has benefited from the expertise of numerous mentors throughout her training and employment who have provided insight and allowed her to gain experience in camelid medicine.  She is board-certified in Large Animal Surgery and in Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care.  Dr. Dechant is the faculty advisor to the UC-Davis Camelid Medicine Club and supervises the care and use of the Camelid Teaching herd.

In 2011, LANA presented Dr. Dechant with a special recognition award for her work with the CA-33, the llamas brought to UCD from the closure of the Montana Large Animal Sanctuary.
