GLENDALE, Arizona — Aleyda Plagge, D.V.M., of Crawfordville, Florida, has completed the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (D.V.M.) degree at the College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) of Midwestern University. Conferring of degrees took place in a June 1 graduation ceremony at Midwestern University’s Glendale Campus Auditorium.

Dr. Plagge is the daughter of Crawfordville residents Dr. Andrea and Mr. Jack Plagge. She graduated from Wakulla High School in 2014, and earned a B.S. in Biology from Florida State University in 2018. After graduation from Midwestern she will start her career at a mixed animal practice in Graham, North Carolina. Dr. Plagge enjoys mixed animal practice due to the variety of species she is able to treat.

She especially likes goats and alpacas due to their unique personalities and often challenging medical presentations.

The College of Veterinary Medicine, home to Arizona’s first veterinary doctoral program, graduated its inaugural class in 2018. Its mission is to improve animal and human life through innovative veterinary education, state-of-the-art healthcare services, and scholarly work relevant to the principles of One Health.

Veterinarians provide health care services for small, large, or mixed-animal populations via general practice or specialty fields, as well as work in biomedical research, veterinary medical education, diagnostic laboratories, regulatory medicine, public health, industry, or biosecurity.
