Andrew Gendler, DVM, DACVRBoard-certified Veterinary Radiologist
Andrew Gendler, DVM, and Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Radiology (DACVR) has been part of WestVet’s team for more than five years. His clinical interests include utilizing CT and MRI for the diagnosis of musculoskeletal disease, neuroimaging, and diagnostic accuracy in medical imaging.
He has published and presented research on the CT imaging of feline oral squamous cell carcinoma and CT arthrography in the canine elbow joint.
His career path to veterinary medicine began while pursuing a biology and chemistry teaching degree at Montana State University in Bozeman. He graduated from the Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2003.
From 2004 — 2007, Dr. Gendler worked at WestVet as an emergency veterinarian while his wife completed medical training in the area. Their next stop was Madison, Wisconsin. In 2007 he was accepted in the veterinary diagnostic imaging residency at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. This intensive four-year program is an ACVR-accredited radiology residency that provided a large and diverse imaging caseload and invaluable clinical and research experience.
In 2011, the Gendler family moved back to Boise and Dr. Gendler returned to WestVet to provide outpatient imaging services to primary care veterinarians throughout the region.
When not working, he is chauffeuring his kids to and from school and other activities. He races cross country and endurance mountain bike events, road bike races, and his favorite, cyclocross in the fall. During winter, he and his family are busy alpine skiing at Bogus Basin.
