Stephanie DeMarco, DVM, Medical Director

DVM, Oklahoma State University
BS, University of Delaware


Dr. DeMarco was originally from Hatfield, Pennsylvania. She attended the University of Delaware as  a Pre-Vet Student in the College of Agriculture. She attended Oklahoma State University for Veterinary School and Graduated in 2001. After 4 wonderful years in the Midwest she was ready to move home to the fast paced, loud talkers of the east coast.

Soon after graduation, Dr. DeMarco married one of her best friends from college. They are blessed with 2 beautiful daughters.

Dr. DeMarco joined the VCA Kirkwood team in 2008. She has been practicing small veterinary medicine in Delaware since her graduation in 2001. 

Dr. DeMarco enjoys baking, scrap booking and spending time with her family. She also shares her home with a very sassy little Chihuahua named Bendito.

"I am on of those blessed people that can truly say "I love my job".  I am challenged every day. I get to make lasting relationships with clients, and I am surrounded by great people at VCA Kirkwood who really care about what they do and want to make a difference in the world, one furry friend at a time."


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.

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.
