Dr. Dalimata was born in Kalispell, Montana and grew up near Glacier National Park. She received her DVM from Colorado State University in 1996. Dr. Dalimata has been a part of our veterinary community for many years and joined Manzano Animal Clinic in 2023. She currently shares her home with three cats: a long-haired Tabby with a contumacious attitude named Felix, a gray short-haired personality plus kitty named Augustus McCrae, and Leonidus Spartacus, a short-haired brown Tabby who is part warrior and part diva. Dr. Dalimata enjoys gardening, cooking, rock-hounding, hiking, watching football, reading, and spending time with her family during her free time. Some of her favorite things about veterinary medicine include working with interesting people that like their jobs, the advances made in our diagnostic capabilities and pain management, and clients showing her pictures of their pets doing funny, cute, and brave things.
