Dr. Andrea Trujillo

Associate Veterinarian

Dr. Andrea Trujillo is from Las Vegas, NM.  She figured out early in life that she enjoyed using her plastic doctor toys on her stuffed animals rather than her dolls. When she was 9 years old, her allergist told her she’d never be a veterinarian because of severe allergies and asthma. Many allergy injections, inhalers and antihistamines later, she graduated from Colorado State University as Doctor of Veterinary Medicine.  

She returned to New Mexico after veterinary school and practiced at the same hospital for just over 20 years.  In that time, she has had the privilege of being an associate, mentor, preceptor, manager and medical director.  Dr. Trujillo loves the mystery of internal medicine and the fine art of soft tissue surgery.  It is respect for the human animal bond and the support and development of her colleagues that has made Veterinary Medicine a calling more than a career. 

In her spare time, she enjoys reading novels, managing her husband’s art business, gathering her extended family and traveling with her husband and son. She has a single eyed “flug” (fluffy pug) named Dart.  She is very excited and grateful to be a part of the Zia Pet Hospital team.
