Dr. Burns-Oberlander was born and raised in the small town of Salisbury, MD. Her family loved animals and had many pets including cats, dogs, birds, mice, fish and hamsters. Science was always her passion in school and she decided in the second grade that she was going to be a doctor. After finishing high school, she moved across the country to attend college at the University of California, San Diego and graduated with a degree in Biology. She was then accepted to the U.C. Davis School of Veterinary Medicine and graduated in 1996. Dr. Burns returned to San Diego to complete an internship in small animal medicine and surgery at a busy emergency/ referral practice. She worked as a veterinarian in Fresno and Monterey, California before moving to Eugene with her husband and daughters in 2004. In November 2010, Dr. Burns established Eugene Mobile Veterinary Services to offer quality medicine for cats and dogs in the comfort of their own homes. She grew the practice over the last 11 years and outfitted vans as mobile clinics to provide additional services that include surgery, dentistry, x-rays and ultrasound all at a patient’s house. She also opened an office location where clients can bring in their pets and/or pick up medications. Dr. Burns enjoys being able to really get to know her clients and to take the time to give quality care to her patients without the stress of going into a clinic. It really is a great way to practice veterinary medicine. She has special interests in dentistry, ultrasound and acupuncture. She merged with BetterVet in January 2022 to continue to offer the same great service to the Eugene/Springfield area. In her free time, Dr. Burns enjoys traveling, hiking, cooking, playing the flute in the community orchestra and helping her husband with his winery and tasting room. She and her husband have two adult daughters and 5 rescued cats that keep them on their toes.
