Dr. Ana and Friends

Dr. Anna M. Coffin is owner and veterinarian of Guthrie Pet Hospital.  She was born and raised in Guthrie, Oklahoma on an agriculture farm North of Guthrie, where her family of 6 children raised peaches, cherries, apples, strawberries and asparagus.  Her parents raised her with great Christian values and an excellent work ethic.  

Growing up as a child she had one outside dog that wondered up to the house. Her family was swimming in the creek and he stole their shoes, so they named him Thief.  He became part of their family and lived a good long life.  When she was in Jr. High, another stray came along that she became attached to.  He was missing for a few days and she found him on the side of the road dead.  He had been hit by a car and left there to die without any help.  That was the moment she decided that she was going to become a veterinarian.  She graduated from Oklahoma State University School of Veterinary Medicine in 1994. 

Upon graduation, she married a veterinary classmate and moved to New Hampshire for three years.  She became homesick and in 1997 decided to move back home and purchased Guthrie Pet Hospital.  She enjoys practicing medicine and helping over 1500 pets and their parents.  In 2009, she went to Baltimore for extensive dental training and really enjoys the art of dentistry.

Four out of her six siblings still live and are active in the Guthrie community today.  Her oldest sister, Mary, is Director of the Chamber of Commerce.  Her younger sister is her veterinary technician and her niece is one of her receptionist.  Her youngest brother, who is a Cordon Bleu Chef and his wife are partners with her parents in Granny Had One, a local catering business that has been operating since 1989.  They also own and operate Loco Farms, which is located on their original homestead, where they have a three acre garden, goats, alpacas and horses. 

Dr. Anna also owns One Stop Copy Shop providing locals customers with copying needs and also has a bed and breakfast called Jaded Getaway.  She enjoys spending time with family and friends, reading and volunteering for Friends of Guthrie Animals and Relay for Life.

    My dog Bella died wednesday august 29, she threw up her food,twice,the second time she collapsed and her stomach started convulsions, she threw uo 4 more times,slime and foam,she apparently tried one last time to get up but her body shook real bad,and she died in my arms. I took her to the local veterinarian but he could not tell me much without an autopsy, her body temperature was 103 when she died. any idea what could have caused this??

    Hello. A few hours ago I was on a bed and when I stepped off the bed I stepped on my dogs front paw. She has been limping on it, I lightly moved her paw and toes, she didnt yelp but flinched a little bit. I feel bad and I am not sure what to do. We are very tight on money and I dont want to take her to the vet if she will just heal with time. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Sincerely,

    Elizabeth
