We are centrally located in the Woodland Commons Shopping Plaza just east of I-95, serving the communities of Palm Coast, Flagler Beach, Bunnell and surrounding areas. The practice was built by Dr. Cathy Sheffield in January 2011. Dr. Sheffield is the sole veterinarian at Palm Coast Pet Clinic and her friendly staff are here to serve you and your pets. Dr. Sheffield lives locally and can be available for after hours assistance on an as needed basis with prior arrangement for her established patients. She is committed to their well being.
Dr. Cathy Sheffield is originally from the great state of Wyoming. She received her undergraduate degree in Zoology/Physiology in 1992 from the University of Wyoming. Later she attended Colorado State University College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences where she received her doctorate of veterinary medicine in 1998. Dr. Sheffield has spent most of her career in private practice, with the last 2 years working at a non-profit spay/neuter/medical clinic. She believes in the value of evidence based medicine.
The Sheffield family (husband Stan, daughter Amelia) re-located to Palm Coast in March of 2004, just in time for the big hurricane season! The Sheffields belong to a houseful of rescued critters; including dogs, cats and guinnea pigs. Dr. Sheffield believes in adoption, responsible pet ownership through spay/neuter and preventive care, Trap Neuter Return for feral cats in our community, and lasting, loving relationships with family pets.
