Dr. Paula Acer, an Avondale, AZ native, completed her undergraduate work in biology and animal science at Northern Arizona University and at Kansas State University. She obtained her doctorate in veterinary medicine from Kansas State University College of veterinary Medicine in 1985 and next moved back to Arizona to work in Kingman with her husband and newborn daughter. After eleven years, Dr. Acer was ready for her own practice and she and her husband, Jim, opened Cerbat Cliffs Animal Hospital with a staff of three and a tiny building. The following year, they moved the practice to their custom-built hospital and feel blessed to have grown Cerbat Cliffs into a thriving business. They are parents to four beautiful grown daughters, and stewards to one Irish Wolfhound and one sassy kitty. Two little granddaughters have completely stolen Dr. Acer’s heart, however, and while she enjoys many different activities outside of the clinic, her very favorite pastime is visiting with these two precious girls. She feels very blessed by her family, friends and the wonderful community in which she lives. Life is good!
Dr. Paula Acer has retired from the veterinary community. While we miss her dearly, we know she is enjoying her extra time with her grandchildren!
