Dr. Michelle Thornberry

Dr. Thornberry has always had the desire to work with and around animals in some capacity which is what drew her to Veterinary medicine. Her favorite part of being a veterinarian is providing people with knowledge or comfort that they did not have before they brought their pet to see her. She enjoys forming positive relationships on a daily basis (with a pet, with a person, or with a group of people), and strives hard to achieve practical solutions for the cases that come to her. Her specialties include preventive care, dentistry, and soft tissue surgery.

Shelby D.
Practice Manager
Shelby has her B.S. in Animal Sciences from the University of Missouri-Columbia, and she has been with Vet Stop since 2015. Her favorite part of her job is staff development because a strong, capable team is what makes Vet Stop so amazing for the pets we care for. She has three dogs that she loves with all her heart. She enjoys spending time outdoors, photography, dog behavior/training, and she’s a total spreadsheet nerd.
Raeana

She is an 8 year Army veteran that has had an interest in medicine and working with animals from a young age. Patient comfort and care as well as attention to detail are her top priority! Her favorite part of being at Vet Stop is when she can help the patients have a positive experience and enhance the pet/owner relationship at home. In her spare time she enjoys music, running, cooking, hiking and plenty of time with friends.

Anna
Lodge Attendant
Anna has only worked with dogs professionally for a couple years but she’s always been a dog lover. She has one dog at home, a husky-mix named Skylar. Her favorite part of working at Vet Stop is meeting and interacting with the dogs and building a bond with the dogs that come frequently. Working with many different temperaments and sizes always keeps me on my toes and I enjoy how it grows me as a person and a handler.
