Regina M. Armstrong, DVM

Dr. Regina Armstrong graduated form Colorado State University in May of 1987 and moved to Tucson to practice veterinary medicine. Dr. Armstrong started at Golf Links Animal Clinic as an associate veterinarian in August of 1993. She moved to our Tucson Small Animal Hospital location in January, 1997. Dr. Armstrong then became an owner in May of 1999. She spent some of her childhood in Tucson while her father attended school here. Her family then moved to the Phoenix area when her father accepted a position on the faculty at Arizona State University. Dr. Armstrong did her undergraduate work at Arizona State University (a fact that she has been trying to live down ever since she moved to Tucson!). Dr. Armstrong's main interest is in dogs and cats, as she has developed quite an allergy to rabbits and other pocket pets. Dr. Armstrong's husband, John, is a wildlife biologist who raises and breeds snakes in his spare time, so she is never far away from the animals. Dr. Armstong and John also live with more conventional pets, two cats, Deacon and Decker; three dogs, Monkey, Finch and Blue; and Maggie the Magpie Jay. In her spare time (what little of it there is!), Dr. Armstrong enjoys reading and traveling. She and John have been to many exotic locations including bird watching in Brazil and a safari in Africa.
