Our Furry Team Members
Our Furry Team Members
Minnie is Dr. Shreiber’s newest greyhound and is a giant love bug! Much like her older sister, Minnie is a sweetie who enjoys all the attention she can get. She loves pets and hugs, eating doggy ice cream and popping up to say hello to all of our clients.
Gracie is Dr. Shreiber’s first greyhound in command and is the leader of the office pups. She is super sweet and lovey! She can be found lounging around the office, snacking on doggy ice cream, and playing with her furry friends.
Sam is our newest furry team member, and loves to greet clients daily. He is full of energy and always very silly, and he loves his mom Wanda! But he also loves anyone who will give him a treat. Like the rest of our doggy reception crew, he enjoys his doggy ice cream treats, and snuggles from the staff!
LT came to Valley Vet as a sickly, 8 lb. flea-infested kitty that needed medical attention and is now tipping the scales at 20 lbs! No, he’s not pregnant, yes, he is on a diet, but hey, he’s more to love! LT is the Valley Vet ambassador. He can be found wandering the halls at Valley Vet, joining you in an exam room or greeting you in the lobby. When he is not performing his social responsibilities, he is usually snoozing behind the front desk or begging for food (of course). Make sure to say hello to him while you are visiting our office. He definitely looks forward to the attention!

Cosmo was a charismatic greyhound who brought a lot of joy to the office for over 10 years. He was the pack leader, very intelligent, spirited, and full of energy and spunk. He loved chicken fingers and treats, naps with his sister Gracie, and had a special bond with Dr. Shreiber. Cosmo is missed by everyone!
Lucky was one of Valley Vet's most beloved friends. She was gentle and quiet and could be found cuddling in a small space or in the laps of the front desk staff. Lucky loved to visit new friends in the building, eat treats, and snuggle up for a nap. She is missed by all and will forever hold a place in our hearts!

Our little piggie Cookie had a fall last night. It was so easy to get an appointment to get her looked at. Dr. Shreiber was very patient in examining her. The office staff and assistants are also very compassionate people. Thank you for making our little Cookie feel better.

The most knowledgeable vet we ever had. They do not push treatment on you, they work with you and the main priority is your pet.
- Gloria D.
Always a great experience. I was here yesterday after my dog was bitten by another dog and they took her back right away and eased my mind that it was only a minor flesh wound.
- Amy P.

Thank you all for your wonderful support and care of my beloved Lilly. You made her and I so comfortable as we said good-bye. It’s never easy to let go of your pet, but even though my heart was breaking you took great care of her. I don’t know how you do what you do, but I appreciate more than you’ll ever know.
