Dana Schaffer, Associate Veterinarian

DVM

Originally from Kensington, El Cerrito, CA, Dr. Dana Schaffer joined the VCA Albany Animal Hospital team in July, 2018. Dana attended Rutgers where she obtained a Bachelor’s of Arts in Political Science and Journalism before moving on to get her DVM at UC Davis in 2005.

If you asked her what she likes most about her job, she would say “My coworkers, being able to fit squishing animal faces into my schedule on a regular basis, and being a trusted, compassionate member of the veterinary team.” Her professional interests include Dermatology, Internal Medicine, and small mammals including: rabbits, guinea pigs, rats, hamsters and mice

Outside of work, you can find her doing copious amounts of laundry, vacuuming, drinking wine, eating Thai food, or dancing to funk music with her daughter. Her furry family includes Daxter, a.k.a. Feline Magic, Tootles, a.k.a Canine Goofball, and Angie Baby, a.k.a Canine Crazy.
