Dr. Shana L. Schmitt
Dr. Schmitt was born and raised in the small town of Waukomis, Oklahoma. She was always surrounded by animals and quickly developed an interest in caring for them. She fondly remembers stopping to help turtles cross the road and bottle feeding orphaned wildlife with her grandma Pearl and mom. However, it wasn’t until junior high that she realized her love of animals would turn into a career in veterinary medicine. After assisting their family veterinarian in delivering a litter of puppies, she began volunteering at the mixed animal practice and eventually became an employee. Those first years working in a clinic taught her about the hard work and determination she would need to succeed in this profession.
After earning her bachelor’s degree in Animal Science and an honors degree at Oklahoma State University in 2007, she attended OSU’s Center for Veterinary Health Sciences. She was an active member of multiple organizations while at OSU, including American Association of Feline Practitioners, American Animal Hospital Association, and Zoo, Exotic, and Wildlife Medicine. As her love of medicine and helping pets continued to grow, she realized that the bond she developed with her clients meant more to her than she could have ever imagined. She graduated with her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine in May 2011.
After graduation, she began working at an emergency hospital in their intensive care unit. Having treated many critical pets and counseled worried clients about diseases and illnesses that are often preventable, Dr. Schmitt wanted to focus on disease prevention and early detection. This focus led her out of emergency care and into primary care in 2013. By partnering with her clients to provide quality preventive care for their pets, they are able to prevent many of the diseases seen in emergency hospitals. Her special interests include preventive care, emergency medicine, exotic pet medicine, and nutrition.
Along with her husband Nick and son Eli, she shares her home with a lab named Duke, a Great Dane named Jackson, and a cat named Moe. Her family also has African spurred tortoises. Dr. Schmitt and her family are members of Lakeside United Methodist Church in Oklahoma City. She enjoys spending time with her family, almost anything outdoors, and is a loyal Oklahoma State Cowboys fan.
