Natalie Buckner, DVM

Small and Large Animal Doctor

Dr. Natalie grew up on a crop and beef farm in northern Illinois. After completing her undergraduate degree at Montana State University, she attended University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine and graduated in 2013. Her favorite veterinary cases involve large and small animal surgery, senior wellness care, and helping sick patients. Outside of work, Dr. Natalie enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. She has a dachshund, named “Neut” and a Standard Poodle named “Albus”.  Her family loves to be active outdoors trail riding, hiking, and kayaking. At Sunrise, Dr. Natalie is passionate about making the clinic an inclusive and friendly environment. She can often be found dancing in the treatment room and fishing for laughs. She hopes that the clients and patients feel welcome while they are here and confident that our staff is providing the best possible care to their pets.
