Shannon Overstreet, BVMS

Inspired as a child by the writings of James Herriot, Dr. Shannon Overstreet always knew she wanted to be a veterinarian. However, as life sometimes gets in the way, in order to raise her family, she juggled a career in banking and a position as a veterinary technician, while serving in the Navy and pursuing a bachelor's degree in biological sciences from the University of Alaska Anchorage. After graduating from UAA, she was accepted to her dream school, the University of Edinburgh Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies. During her studies, she returned to Alaska twice to complete externships with VCA Bering Sea Animal Hospital where she fell in love with the practice and the people. Shannon is a lifelong Alaskan who enjoys cycling and hiking with her husband and her dog.

Specialty Care

Sometimes sick or injured pets need the care of a veterinary medical specialist. When that happens, VCA specialty hospitals work closely with the general practitioner veterinarians who refer cases to us in order to provide seamless veterinary care to your pet. When your pet is facing any kind of serious illness or injury, our specialty referral hospitals will provide the compassionate and expert care your beloved pet needs.

Our goal is to make sure that when you and your pet are in need that you have access to board certified specialists who are up to date on the very latest developments in their field. In our state of the art hospitals, our specialists also have access to the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment tools and techniques from ultrasonography and endoscopy to CAT scans and even MRI.

As part of the VCA family, we have over 83 specialty hospitals across the US and Canada which provide referral specialty care, so there may be one near you. Our specialized services include: behavior, cardiology, critical care, dentistry, dermatology, integrative medicine, internal medicine, neurology, oncology, ophthalmology, radiology, rehabilitation, reproduction, and surgery.
