Dr. Kutil grew up in Parker, AZ and Lake Havasu City, AZ. Since the first grade, she had always wanted to become a veterinarian. She studied biology at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. She then pursued her Veterinary degree at Colorado State University, graduating in 2005. Dr. Kutil joined Novak Animal Care in the summer of 2007. Her interests include holistic and alternative medicine. She became interested in alternative medicine when she realized Western medicine did not always offer a definitive diagnosis or effective treatment. She completed a 205 hour course in traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture from the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society in 2009. She now takes a holistic approach utilizing conventional medicine as well as acupuncture, herbal and food therapies. When Tracy has time to unwind, she likes to enjoy outdoor activities, cooking and spending time with her furry family members.
