Sue’s Bio and Sessions

about  Sue Yanoff

Sue graduated from Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine in Ithaca, NY, in 1980. After three years in private practice, she joined the U.S. Army Veterinary Corps. While on active duty, she completed a 3 year residency in small animal surgery at Texas A&M University in College Station, TX. and became board certified by the American College of Veterinary Surgeons. She retired from the Army as a Lieutenant Colonel in 2004, after almost 21 year on active duty. After working for a year on a horse farm in Idaho, she returned to Ithaca to join the staff at Colonial Veterinary Hospital as their second surgeon.

Sue retired from Colonial in December 2009. (Her on-call schedule was interfering with her dog show weekends!) The following month, she started working for Shelter Outreach Services, a high quality, high volume spay-neuter organization. About the same time, Sue joined her colleague, a physical therapist / licensed veterinary technician, to start a canine sports medicine practice at the Animal Performance and Therapy Center, in Genoa, NY. The practice is limited to performance dogs.

Sue showed her first obedience dog, a beagle, Tristan, to a CDX in 1978. Her second beagle, Devon, earned a UD. Her third beagle, Charm, earned a VCD2, and was one of the most titled breed champion bitches in the history of the breed: CH Wilkeep Third Time’s A Charm UD, RE, MX, MXJ, AXP, AJP, TD. Two golden retrievers, between the beagles, were great pets and therapy dogs. Sue currently is preparing her beagle, Ivy (CH MACH Wilkeep Ivy League, CDX, RN, TD) for the utility ring.
