For More Information:
Dr. Barnes Heller (Dr. Barnes) was born and raised outside of Detroit Michigan . She attended Michigan State University (go Spartans!) for undergraduate and Veterinary School. Upon graduation in 2000, Dr. Barnes pursued a veterinary internship at the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana followed by a residency at the University of Florida in neurology and neurosurgery. She returned to the Midwest and joined VCA-Aurora Animal Hospital in a Chicago suburb from 2004-2010. At the end of 2010, the call to academic life drew her to the University of Wisconsin-Madison. While at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Dr. Barnes Heller pioneered research in novel therapeutic seizure treatments for cats and dogs including transdermal and modified oral therapeutics. In 2019, Dr. Barnes Heller left the University of Wisconsin to start Barnes Veterinary Specialty Services (BVSS). Opening BVSS has allowed her to return to practicing neurology on a more personal level, and to provide low stress piece of mind to clients not wishing, or unable, to pursue treatment at referral facilities. Dr. Barnes enjoys living in Madison with her husband and 3 kids. When she isn’t working, odds are you’ll find her biking, hiking and playing with her kids or sweating through a hot yoga session.
