Chris J. Huth
Dr. Huth was born and raised in Poway, California. He was very involved in 4-H and FFA while growing up. He showed steers and hogs at the Del Mar Fair for over 10 years. After graduating from Poway High School, he attended Fresno State. During his time at Fresno State, he was responsible for the breeding program at the Quarter Horse Unit. Dr. Huth graduated with the Dean's medalist award for the College of Agricultural Sciences and Technology.
Dr. Huth graduated from Colorado State University's Professional Veterinary Medical Program. During school, Dr. Huth worked in the Fort Collins Bio-Security Laboratory on a variety of research studies including horses, alpacas, and alligators. Most of the work he did was with the West Nile Virus. Dr. Huth received the Outstanding Large Animal Surgery Award when he finished veterinary school. Although he had a large animal emphasis during vet school, he spent his first year working in a mixed animal hospital in Pagosa Springs, Colorado. The variety of animals he worked on was entertaining, but he really missed working with large animals.
Dr. Huth is extremely proud of the practice Temeku Equine has become. He credits his excellent team and supportive family for making it run smoothly.
Dr. Huth is married to Becca; they have three young daughters named Abby, Jocelyn, and Paige.
