Dr. Gueniat was fascinated by all creatures on earth as a little girl. Her room was wall to wall full with pictures from the animal world. She walked other people’s dogs, she spent every free minute after school at the horse barn, and she raised tadpoles to frogs. Her first pets were three hamsters. At age 12 she assisted a pigmy goat when giving birth to three baby pigmies. Her childhood dream of becoming a veterinarian became true when she graduated from Veterinary School in Bern, Switzerland, in 1983. She specialty trained in reproductive physiology and internal medicine at Iowa State and Oklahoma State. In the spar free time, Dr. Gueniat enjoys singing in the Swiss Singing Society Harmonie together with her husband, and outdoor activities like hiking and skiing.
