Stephanie Stoegbauer, DVM, Associate VeterinarianDVM, Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine
BiographyDr. Stephanie Stoegbauer joined VCA Redmond in January of 2010. She has been an emergency and critical care veterinarian at one of our sister hospitals in Issaquah since 2007. She brings a strong soft tissue surgical background to the hospital. Abdominal surgery including foreign body removal, intestinal resection and anastamosis, and spleen removal are her favorite surgeries but won’t turn down a "good" laceration or mass removal. Dr. Stoegbauer moved to day practice because she missed seeing healthy happy puppies and kittens, and wanted to be involved in the long term management of her patients. She wants to work hard to develop quality client relationships and promote preventative care for all life stages. She saw several cases seen in the emergency room which could have been prevented with routine examinations and bloodwork. Her goal is to help pets live a long, comfortable life. Dentistry and internal medicine are her two favorite ways to increase a pet’s quality of life. She also promotes pet insurance to provide the best possible care for each patient as veterinary medicine advances.
Dr. Stoegbauer graduated with honors from the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine in 2007 and Virginia Tech in 2003. Dr. Stoegbauer grew up in the suburbs of Washington D.C, and moved to the Seattle in 2007 to be with her newlywed husband, Toby. At home, she has two "children" Daisy, the ex-racing Greyhound and "Frank the Tank", a Great Dane puppy. Dr. Stoegbauer loves the outdoor sports available in Seattle including snowboarding, hiking and she completed her first triathalon in 2009. She also loves cooking, home remodel/decorating, and reading.
