About Vet

Hi, I'm Dr. Schneider! I've been a veterinarian in Missouri for almost 12 years and graduated from the University of Missouri. I see dogs and cats full time as a general practitioner in a hospital setting with several other veterinarians and love it! However, I find the idea of telehealth interesting too. It's a great way to connect with pet parents outside of my full time job because I can connect with pet owners where they are!

Missouri Veterinarian-Client-Patient Relationship (VCPR) laws do not allow me to diagnosis or prescribe medication over a telehealth appointment. While I can't provide a diagnosis or write prescriptions, sometimes there are over the counter options available and sometimes pet parents just need guidance as to whether or not your furry friend needs further in-person care with your regular veterinarian.

My favorite veterinary topics are preventive medicine (heartworm and other parasite prevention, vaccinations), parasitology, dentistry, dermatology, internal medicine, behavior and palliative or end-of-life care.

When I'm not working I enjoy spending time with my husband and our pets; we have 2 chocolate labs, Herbie and Monty, as well as a geriatric calico cat, Josie. My husband and I enjoy spending time with family and friends and we love to travel, go to musicals and attend sporting events.
