Stephen Sheldon, DVM (and the poodle party) firstname.lastname@example.org
Is our hospital director. Dr. S grew up in Florida and graduated from the University of Florida where his undergraduate and veterinary medical and graduate studies were done (go gators!). In case you are wondering that was 8 years of college (Dr. S likes to joke that he was a slow learner but 8 years of college is what it takes to become a veterinarian). He owned and ran an AAHA accredited veterinary hospital for 14 years before relocating to Colorado over 11 years ago. He is a past-president of the South Florida Veterinary Medical Association, an organization with over 300 members, and served on the executive board for 10 years. His family has been visiting the valley for over 30 years and he couldn’t wait to move here. He lives in Eagle with his wife, Roni, their 5 children and numerous 4-legged furry friends. Dr. S truly loves veterinary medicine and is a scientist at heart; he would much rather look down a microscope than at a computer screen! He has an off color sense of humor and enjoys his work; he makes sure his staff does as well. His interests are internal medicine, general medical practice, soft tissue surgery, pediatrics, and chemotherapy or cancer treatments.
GAH was a labor of love for Dr. Sheldon and took 2 years to conceive, design and build. We encourage you to stop by and take a tour of the facilities and see our surgery suite, full laboratory, outpatient treatment area, boarding kennels and digital x-ray machine; we wanted Gypsum to have the nicest facility in the valley and hope we achieved our goal.
Dr. S is a member of the following professional organizations: American Veterinary Medical Assn (VMA), Colorado VMA, Florida VMA, Veterinary Cancer Society, American Assn of Feline Practitioners, American Animal Hospital Assn, and the Morris Animal Foundation.
When not busy at GAH, Dr. S keeps busy with his family, riding bikes, hiking, playing golf (hah), growing trees at his house or working with the Town of Eagle as a Planning and Zoning Commissioner.
Speaking of staff; Dr. S has hired a staff that is as dedicated to taking care of our animals as he is. Here is some info on them:
Nadine Lober, DVM (and Ted Jr.)
Dr. Nadine has been practicing in the valley for decades (doesn't she look like she just graduated? Not a day over 20!). Dr. Nadine is usually here Wednesday and Friday and covers for Dr. Sheldon's vacations. In addition to practicing traditional medicine, Dr. Nadine is a licensed veterinary acupuncturist, and she also overs laser treatments. We love Dr. Nadine!
Caroline Davis, Veterinary Nurse, Practice Manager (Caroline@gypsumah.com)
Caroline is one of our technicians with numerous years of experience from small, large and even exotic animals! Caroline graduated from Colorado State University and enjoys spending her time outdoors. Chances are you can catch her on the river, rafting on her spare time or running for miles and miles! Caroline has a passion for helping your pets and has been in the business for 20 years! We love her and are happy to have her on our team!
Sonia Herrera, DVM intern
Sonia joined our team in 2018 and she graduated from vet school in Mexico. She is working towards getting her licensure here in the United States. She is working alongside Dr. Sheldon and Dr. Nadine gaining their years of experience knowledge. We are lucky to have Sonia on our team, she keeps everyone thinking and can often be found snuggling with all her patients.
We are located on Highway 6, between and Gypsum and Costco, next to the Big Dog Car Wash
