A Bit About Me
Dr. Shannon Heintz, a 2020 graduate of the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine, knew she wanted to work with animals from a young age.
“I always loved medicine and science and I wanted to apply this passion to treat and advocate for animals,” she says. Her professional veterinary interests include dentistry, dermatology, surgery, and neurology.
Dr. Heintz, who grew up along the east coast, earned an undergraduate degree in Pre-Veterinary Medicine and Animal Biosciences with a minor in Biochemistry at the University of Delaware. She is a proud member of the American Veterinary Medical Association and the American Association of Feline Practitioners.
Among her hobbies are hiking, traveling, painting, yoga, and cooking. She shares her life with Kiwi, a tuxedo cat who she says is “dermatologically challenged.
" Our puppy was spayed at this facility! I wish they were not so far away from my home. They were awesome . Everyone was very friendly and professional. The receptionists and the doctor’s assistant were helpful and patient. They answered all my questions and were extremely attentive and polite. Dr. Shannon Heintz was amazing. She called to keep me informed on how my fur baby was doing before and after surgery. She even called the day after surgery to ask how my pup was making out. This was a great experience for me and my fur baby! "
