Amy Fauber, DVM, MS
Board Certified in Neurology by the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine
Board Certified by the American College of Veterinary Surgeons
Dr. Amy Fauber has never wanted to be anything other than a veterinarian, although that dream was tested at age 14 when she started working summers at a veterinary practice. “I passed out the first time I watched a surgery!” she remembers. Now she’s performing those surgeries, with a specialty in treating diseases affecting the nervous system.
Dr. Fauber is one of fewer than a dozen veterinarians who are dual-boarded ACVS and ACVIM (Neuro) Diplomates, and she was the first woman to obtain these dual credentials. She enjoys the hands-on aspect of surgery, the problem-solving skills needed in neurology, and most of all, the satisfaction of successfully treating a patient. “There is nothing more inspiring and rewarding,” she says, “than seeing a paralyzed dog walk again.”

When the family moved to Charlotte from Indiana, their small farm moved with them. Llorezo the llama was soon joined by May the llama. In perfect complement to the llamas, two rescue pugs are part of the family now as well, Beasley, the three-legged pug, and Luna, the one-eyed pug.
