Shawna Buerkle, Staff Veterinarian

DVM

Dr. Buerkle grew up in Charleston, SC, but in the course of pursuing a lifelong passion for science and biology, has also lived in Hartsville, SC; Raleigh, NC; Perth, (Western) Australia; Athens, GA; and, outside Chicago, IL. Her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine was completed at the University of Georgia. She spent a year at VCA Arboretum View Animal Hospital in Illinois, completing advanced training in a small animal internship. Dr. Buerkle returned to her home state to join the VCA Palmetto Animal Hospital family in July 2014.

Dr. Buerkle has a wide variety of interests within the field of veterinary medicine, but is especially passionate about preventative care and internal medicine. She also has a fascination with exotic animal medicine including care of reptiles and "pocket pets."

Her roommates include a snuggle-bug of a Boston Terrier named Rex, a naughty but charismatic shelter mix named Juno, and a shy Kenyan sand boa named Basil.  When not in the clinic, she enjoys combing the beach while watching shorebirds, cuddling with Rex (Basil isn't much of a snuggler), exploring new places, visiting breweries with her fiancé, and trying her hand at cooking.
