About Camille

Dr. Camille Torres pursued her undergraduate and veterinary education at Colorado State University, and obtained her DVM in 2001. Dr. Torres initially went into small animal private practice in Albuquerque, N.M., before joining Community Practice at Colorado State University in 2008. Her commitment to continued learning led to the achievement of feline and canine diplomate status with the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners (DABVP) in 2011. Seeing how preventing disease can be so much easier for a pet than treatment led her to explore the effects of obesity on companion animals and nutrition’s role in obesity management. Driven by a curiosity of how to enhance health through nutrition, Dr. Torres pursued a residency in veterinary nutrition and achieved diplomate status with the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (Nutrition) in 2021. Beyond her professional life, Dr. Torres has a furry family consisting of two cats, a Yorkiepoo, and a French Bulldog. Her personal life revolves around quality time with her husband and two boys, and she seizes every opportunity to engage in the outdoor activities that Colorado has to offer.
