Dr. Eifler’s love for animals began at an early age. She always wanted to become a veterinarian, and when her family dog, a German Shepherd named Max became afflicted with a devastating neurologic condition called degenerative myelopathy, she realized her desire to specialize in veterinary neurology.  During her neurology residency at the University of Missouri, she was worked with the researchers who discovered the gene associated with this disease, which will aid in the diagnosis of degenerative myelopathy.   

Dr. Eifler graduated from the University of New Brunswick in Saint John, Canada, in 1997 and earned her DVM from the Atlantic Veterinary College, University of Prince Edward Island in 2001.
