Dr. Shelbie Snow grew up on a ranch near Santa Barbara, CA. Her father was an equine veterinarian specializing in lameness and surgery, so her desire to become a veterinarian started when she was a young child. She earned a degree in cellular and molecular biochemistry at UC Berkeley in California. She lived in France for a year before moving to Colorado to attend veterinary school at CSU.
Dr. Shelbie has explored many paths in veterinary medicine. She has worked with birds, cats, dogs, cattle, goats, and horses, initially pursuing work with large animals before discovering that her passion resides in end-of-life care. She believes the bond that people share with their pets is one of the most beautiful things to witness, and that euthanasia is the last loving gift people can give to their pets. She is Fear Free Certified and feels that pets should have the most peaceful euthanasia experience as possible, in the comfort of their homes surrounded by the people and other animals they love.
Dr. Shelbie lives in Fort Lupton with her husband, her Springer Spaniel named Willie, her cat named Bing, her Rhodesian Ridgeback named Henry, and 2 guinea pigs named Patsy and Lucy. She enjoys spending her free time hiking, camping, or fishing with her husband and dog, relaxing with their cat, doing home improvement projects, and traveling as much as possible.
