VETERINARIANS

DR. THERESA DEGELDER, DVM

I joined the Forest Glade Animal Hospital team in 1993 as an Associate Veterinarian and eventually became a practice owner. When not at work, I can be found tending to my beautiful garden. I also enjoy camping and hiking with my husband, two teenage sons and two golden retrievers Sophie and Ace.

DR. SHANNA PERRY,

B.SC.(HON),DVM

I joined the Forest Glade Animal Hospital team in 2013 and eventually became a practice owner. Prior to my return home, I worked on both large and small animals in Midland Ontario and then moved to Bracebridge where I focused on small animals, particularly learning the art of acupuncture. Since being at Forest Glade I have taken special interest in orthopaedic surgery and I love the challenge! When I'm not 'knee' deep in work, I love all aspects of life near the great lakes - swimming, boating, camping and sunsets with my young family, our dog Jed and 3 legged cat named Moe-G.

I am a lifelong resident of Essex County with a passion for animals of all shapes and sizes. I have been an Associate Veterinarian with Forest Glade Animal Hospital since 2007. When I'm not practicing veterinary medicine, I am an avid reader who loves to garden, bake and travel with my husband and three young children. I share my home and barn with a dozen nubian goats, chickens and our lab mix Ruby.
