Allison Schroder, DVM, Associate Veterinarian
Dr. Allison Schroder was born and raised on Long Island, New York. She received her Bachelor’s degree from Amherst College and then went on to graduate from Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine. After vet school, Dr. Schroder became Captain America Schroder in the US Army Veterinary Corps. She was stationed at Edwards Air Force Base as the base veterinarian where she was responsible for primary medical and surgical care for the military working dogs, medical training for K-9 handlers, and general care for privately owned animals.
After getting her California veterinary license, Dr. Schroder joined the VCA Main Street Family in 2013. She has a special interest in dentistry, ophthalmology, and preventive medicine. She believes that close monitoring for any changes at home, routine check-ups, and annual screening blood work help owners catch problems early, especially in older dogs and cats. Being proactive in diagnosing and treating illness saves money, stress for the pet and owner, and in many cases can offer a much better long-term prognosis. She also strongly believes in low-stress cat handling to keep cats more at ease at in the clinic and make it easier for owners to bring their cats in for yearly exams. She is a proud owner of a cat, Hallie and a dog, Juliet, who is a boxer and in Dr. Schroder’s opinion, pretty much the cutest dog ever.
