Granada Animal Animal Hospital is family owned and operated! This practice was purchased by Ron and Shelby Wolfe in 2015.

 

 

 

Owner:

Shelby Wolfe DVM, MBA, M.Ag.

Dr. Shelby Wolfe has always had a strong connection with animals. As a child and growing up in Central Florida, she was fortunate enough to have a variety of animals. Dogs, cats, hamsters, rabbits, finches and other small birds, horses, goats, peacocks, chickens and ducks to name a few. Being around and caring for animals has always been normal for her.

Prior to veterinary school, Dr. Wolfe obtained a Bachelors in Animal Science and a Master’s Degree in Agricultural Education, both from the University of Florida. She was a 4-H/Livestock Extension Agent as well as the Practice Manager for a local small animal hospital.

Dr. Wolfe attended St. Matthew’s University School of Veterinary Medicine and North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine to obtain her veterinary degree. During this time she also completed her MBA through Davenport University. After veterinary school, she has worked in small animal practice, Emergency Medicine and served as the Shelter Veterinarian with Halifax Humane Society in Daytona Beach. This variety of veterinary experiences have given Dr. Wolfe the skills and background needed to provide excellent veterinary care to your pet.

Working at the shelter gave Dr. Wolfe great insight about the pet overpopulation issue, homeless animals and the benefits of spay/neuter. She feels strongly about helping those animals in need as well as issues such as spay/neuter and microchipping in case your pet gets lost or stolen.

Dr. Wolfe has a great love for all types of animals. She is eager to meet you and your dog, cat, hamster, bird, or iguana. Whatever type of pet you may have, she will do her best to help you in any way she can!

 

 

Associate Veterinarian:

Tierney Whalen DVM

Dr. Tierney Whalen was four years old when she told her parents she either wanted to become the Crocodile Hunter or a veterinarian. Animal Planet has not returned her phone calls but she did achieve her dream of becoming a veterinarian. Growing up, Dr. Whalen played competitive soccer and spent her free time riding and working around horses.

Dr. Whalen earned her Bachelors Degree in Animal Science at the University of Florida. She also graduated from the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine. She is a proud Gator Alumni but she does not hold it against her non-Gator clients. She worked as a veterinary technician and equestrian trainer throughout most of her college career.

Dr. Whalen loves working in the field of veterinary medicine and has dedicated her life to helping all animals (large, small, scaly, and feathered) in any way she can. She enjoys hanging out on the beach, trying new restaurants, and spending time at home with her two trouble-making dogs, Jake and Chevy.

She is ecstatic about meeting and helping serve the animals and people of Granada Animal Hospital.
