Dr. Susan Erika Argeres was born in Englewood, New Jersey, and moved to Albuquerque with her close knit family when she was three years of age.
Growing up she had a menagerie of pets in her bedroom, and at age eight decided she wanted to be a Veterinarian. She went to Albuquerque Public Schools and then moved to Las Cruces to pursue her undergraduate degree in Animal Science. Prior to veterinary school, she always felt that animals deserved the option of holistic care.
In 1990 she relocated to Fort Collins, Colorado, to attend CSU College of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Argeres obtained her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from CSU in 1994 and practiced in Colorado until May of 2000. She then returned to Albuquerque where she worked at a full-service hospital, and began her training in veterinary acupuncture. Dr. Argeres opened her own holistic practice, Argeres Animal Alternatives, LLC., in 2003 and become a Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist (CVA) in 2005.
