New Veterinarian Joins Middletown Animal Hospital

Dana Shacklton, DVMDana Shackelton, DVM will join Middletown Animal Hospital on November 11, 2014. Dr. Shackelton obtained her degree in veterinary medicine from UC Davis in June of 2013, where her interest was in both small animals and horses. She next completed a year long internship at Pioneer Equine Hospital in Oakdale, CA, where she developed her skills in a referral practice setting. This summer she celebrated the end of 9 years of higher education with a European adventure. Dana and her best friend traveled London, Paris, Spain, Italy, and Switzerland.

Growing up, Dana's father worked for the National Park Service and his career took their family to rural parts of Hawaii, California, and Alaska. Her interest in becoming a veterinarian was sparked when she was a child living in Eagle River, Alaska on the Iditarod Trail. She most recently lived in Mariposa, CA, near Yosemite National Park. Dr. Shackelton’s greatest asset is a warm, positive manner with particular attention to client and patient care. In her spare time she enjoys hiking, riding her mule, Josephine, and hunting for the perfect mocha. She shares her life with her furry family: a guinea pig, and a rescue dog named Kiko!

"With the addition of our new doctor, we will get an infusion of new ideas and new information," said Dr. Smith, who has managed the hospital since it opened in 1990. Dr. Shackelton loves treating all species, but horses have a special place in her heart. "Our practice is unusual because we have the facilities to house and treat horses on premises. This allows us to provide better care and more complete services than strictly mobile practices," said Smith. Dana chose to work at MAH because of the combination of the medical technologies offered and level of client care provided. Currently Dr. Smith has developed special interest in rehabilitation and laser therapy and has just obtained additional training as a Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner. "We are able to help animals become pain free and have a better quality of life," said Smith who recently added a rehabilitation room with treadmill and plans to add an underwater treadmill next. Dr. Holtz’s special interests includes dentistry which developed while growing up with a dad that cared for people teeth! "For example, we are really fortunate to be able to offer dental x-rays with our dental cleanings, because we frequently find problems we would have missed otherwise," said Holtz. "Because our pets are family members and because they are living longer than ever, dentistry, pain management (for arthritis especially), and behavior services have become very important parts of our practice" she added.

"Our ultimate goal is to make every client feel well taken care of when they visit," said Dr. Holtz, "and with the addition of our new doctor, we will continue to add services, skills and choices for our clients."
