Karen Basher

LVT, VTS (Anesthesia & Analgesia)

I graduated and earned my license from State University of New York at Delhi in 1995. During school and after, I worked in general practice for 4 years, before advancing to a private referral specialty hospital in 1998. I was a surgery/anesthesia technician for 2 years and enjoyed learning high risk anesthesia. I transferred to academia at Cornell University Hospital for Animals Anesthesia Department in 2000. I achieved my Veterinary Technician specialty in Anesthesia and Analgesia in 2007 and maintained it for the past 13 years. Since 2014, I have started developing and delivering lectures in the area of Anesthesia. Although majority of my day is focused on small animal anesthesia, I am also trained in equine anesthesia. I live in the heart of the fingerlakes with my husband, daughter, and mixed breed rescue dog.
