Our Staff...

Stephen Sheldon, DVM (and the poodle party) drsteve@gypsumah.com  
Is our hospital director. Dr. S grew up in Florida and graduated from    the University of Florida where his undergraduate and veterinary  medical and graduate studies were done (go gators!). In case you are   wondering that was 8 years of college (Dr. S likes to joke that he was  a slow learner but 8 years of college is what it takes to become a  veterinarian). He owned and ran an AAHA accredited veterinary  hospital for 14 years before relocating to Colorado over 11 years ago.  He is a past-president of the South Florida Veterinary Medical  Association, an organization with over 300 members, and served on  the executive board for 10 years. His family has been visiting the valley for over 30 years and he couldn’t wait to move here. He lives in Eagle with his wife, Roni, their 5 children and numerous 4-legged furry friends.  Dr. S truly loves veterinary medicine and is a scientist at heart; he would much rather look down a microscope than at a computer screen! He has an off color sense of humor and enjoys his work; he makes sure his staff does as well. His interests are internal medicine, general medical practice, soft tissue surgery, pediatrics, and chemotherapy or cancer treatments.

GAH was a labor of love for Dr. Sheldon and took 2 years to conceive, design and build. We encourage you to stop by and take a tour of the facilities and see our surgery suite, full laboratory, outpatient treatment area, boarding kennels and digital x-ray machine; we wanted Gypsum to have the nicest facility in the valley and hope we achieved our goal.

Dr. S is a member of the following professional organizations: American Veterinary Medical Assn (VMA), Colorado VMA, Florida VMA, Veterinary Cancer Society, American Assn of Feline Practitioners, American Animal Hospital Assn, and the Morris Animal Foundation.

When not busy at GAH, Dr. S keeps busy with his family, riding bikes, hiking, playing golf (hah), growing trees at his house or working with the Town of Eagle as a Planning and Zoning Commissioner. 

Speaking of staff; Dr. S has hired a staff that is as dedicated to taking care of our animals as he is. Here is some info on them:


Roni Sheldon roni@gypsumah.com

Roni is married to Dr. Sheldon; they live in Eagle with their numerous pets and even more numerous children (five total from 2-21 years of age).  Roni can be found in the office doing tohe glamourous job of bookeeping and other fun office clerical work.  She likes medicine so we try to get her to assist whnever we can.  Roni s a very athletic person and enjoys biking, running, swimming, hiking, yoga and cell phone talking. Roni has a full time job of her own outside of working at the hospital. She's a busy bee!

Nadine Lober, DVM (and Ted JR) amivet@aol.com

Dr. Nadine has been practicing in the valley for decades (doesn't she look like she just graduated? Not a day over 20!).  Dr. Nadine is usually here on Fridays and covers for Dr. S's vacations.  In addition to practicing traditional medicine, Dr. Nadine is a licensed veterinary acupuncturist, and she also over laser treatments. We love Dr. Nadine!
