Dr. Crabbe spent 30 years as a private practitioner and the owner of Pacific Crest Sporthorse, a 3-doctor general equine practice in Oregon, where she had a special interest in performance horse medicine. In early 2023, Dr. Crabbe transitioned her practice to her two long-term associates to pursue her passion for ethics in veterinary medicine. She completed a Masters degree in Bioethics at the Neiswanger Institute of Bioethics at the Stritch School of Medicine of Loyola University, Chicago, and is enrolled in the doctoral program at Loyola. She currently serves on the AVMA’s Counsel on Veterinary Services and the AAEP’s Ethics and Professional Conduct committee.
Dr. Crabbe is an avid dressage rider and USDF silver medalist and has won multiple USDF regional championships as well as Horse of the Year titles. In addition, she is a graduate with distinction from the USDF-L judges program. She lives on a farm outside of Portland, Oregon with her husband Bob, a veterinary internal medicine specialist. They have two girls who are almost fully launched, and currently focus their attention on 4 dogs, a cat, and 4 horses.
