Amy Shumaker, Veterinary Specialist



Dr. Shumaker is a 2001 graduate of the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine. Following graduation she completed a one-year rotating medicine and surgery internship at VCA South Shore, and became a member of the General Practice Service from 2002-2005. She then went on to complete a three-year residency program in dermatology at The Dermatology Clinic for Animals in Gilbert, AZ, and became board certified in dermatology in 2008. She was a staff dermatologist at Dermatology for Animals (in Tucson, AZ, Valencia, CA and Campbell, CA) for 8 years, also spending a year and a half during that time at the Animal Allergy and Dermatology Specialists in Las Vegas, NV. Dr. Shumaker re-joined the team at VCA South Shore in 2016.

Dr. Shumaker is very excited to be back in the Boston area, and is looking forward to offering innovative dermatology services. These include cryotherapy, or freezing, of benign skin nodules (avoiding the need for anesthesia) and laser ablation procedures for treatment of interdigital follicular cysts and refractory acral lick granulomas. Dr. Shumaker also has a strong interest in treating allergies and chronic ear diseases.
