Dr. Megan Schneider, Director
Dr. Megan Schneider knew she wanted to become a vet since the day she watched the vet preg-checking the cattle on her grandfather’s ranch when she was five years old. Since that day, her aspirations for, and understanding of, veterinary medication has constantly and continually evolved. She attended Colorado State University to earn her B.S in Microbiology and stayed in colorful Colorado for another four years to earn her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from the same university. While attending school she met her then, soon-to-be husband, a fellow classmate and they both moved back to the valley of the sun after graduation. Dr. Schneider loves helping families keep their four-legged family members healthy and comfortable, with a particular interest in preventive care and pain management. On her days off, Dr. Schneider loves being a mom to her two small children, learning tennis (slowly) with her husband, and sneaking off for the occasional ski weekend when the weather is right!”

Stefanie McClintock, CVT
Stefanie always thought being in the veterinary field was an unattainable dream. In 2007 while trying to find a transition from a part-time job as a student to a full-time career, Stefanie took a shot in the dark and applied for a job at a veterinarian owned small animal clinic. Stefanie was given an amazing opportunity and never looked back. She spent over a year under that veterinarian absorbing every drop of knowledge she would give her. In 2010, after eventually moving on to other hospitals, the opportunity presented itself to test her knowledge and experience by earning her veterinary certification (CVT).
Stefanie has always had a great love of animals and this career has been a dream come true since her very first day on the job. Stefanie believes having the ability to help and heal animals is incredibly rewarding.
