Meet Dr. Heather McEvoy

Veterinarian, Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist, Certified Canine Rehabilitation Therapist, Founder

Born and raised in Whitefish, MT, I started my veterinary career here volunteering as a grade schooler to help clean kennels and walk dogs.  Since then I have worked for a variety of shelters, zoos, wildlife rehabilitation facilities, and other veterinary clinics.  I graduated from Seattle University with a Bachelor of Science in Biology and I completed my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine at Oregon State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2015.  During my clinical year there I accomplished my certification in Veterinary Medical Acupuncture (cVMA) through the Medical Acupuncture for Veterinarians course by Curacore Integrative Medicine & Education Center.  I have accompanied that training with additional studies of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine through The College of Integrative Veterinary Therapies and the Chi Institute of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine.  In January of 2019 I completed my certification as a Canine Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine Therapist (CCRT) with an emphasized interest in musculoskeletal palpation, myofascial massage, and craniosacral bodywork.  I value the importance of nutrition and have undergone specialized training in both eastern food therapy and traditional diet formulations.  I have a special interest in geriatric physiotherapy and integrative cancer therapies.  I also love the opportunity to utilize routine bodywork as preventative medicine.  I strive to practice a true holistic approach addressing lifestyle, emotional, and physical attributes of each individual patient.  I am an active member of the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association (AHVMA), American Association of Rehabilitation Veterinarians (AARV), and the American Academy of Veterinary Acupuncture (AAVA).  I live with my partner Eric.  Together we have 3 dogs, 2 cats, and 1 hedgehog whom remind me daily of the significance of the human animal bond.  Besides veterinary medicine I love anything outdoors.  I was a wildland firefighter for 8 seasons and love working hard, getting dirty, and playing in the woods.

Meet Sonja Schroeder

Veterinary Technician

I’ve been working in the veterinary field since 2007.

I’ve had an obsession with all things dog since I was a little kiddo; from mushing to k9 behavior, I could nerd out all day about dogs!

Currently, I’m a team member of Summit Search and Rescue and my dog and I are certified in HR detection.

When not working or training, I love to be adventuring and exploring the trails and waters of the Flathead Valley.
