Shane Ludwig
Staff Veterinarian DVM

Dr. Shane Ludwig originally came from Corwith, Iowa. He was raised on his family�s 1000-acre farm and, growing up, he dreamed of going into farming. As Dr. Ludwig got older, he found joy in helping people with their animals. This lead him on a path to Iowa State College where he earned his Doctorate Degree in Veterinary Medicine.

Utilizing his farming background and enjoying the connection with local farmers, Dr. Ludwig had practiced in Remsen, Iowa.

For 12 years he practiced mixed animal veterinary medicine doing farm calls and seeing small animal patient in hospital. Because Dr. Ludwig had unfortunately developed allergies to grasses, his practice exceedingly became directed toward cats and dogs, particularly in the latter years of his practice in Iowa. Dr. Ludwig decided to move to Florida, where he has practiced at VCA Chiquita Animal Hospital since 2005. He has a special interest in Veterinary Dermatology and controlling allergies.

Dr. Ludwig is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, the Florida Veterinary Medical Association and the Caloosa Veterinary Medical Association.
