Shannon Kesting, DVM

Veterinarian, Owner

My name is Shannon Kesting. I was raised on a farm in Illinois. I received my doctorate it veterinary medicine (DVM) from The University of Missouri – Columbia, College of Veterinary Medicine was completed in 2005. My first few years as a practicing veterinarian was in Missouri where I learned a large amount in infectious disease and surgery. I received a position at Pet Emergency Treatment in the summer of 2007. My experience at Pet Emergency Treatment greatly advanced my medical knowledge with emergency and critical care.

I bought Chester Valley Veterinary Hospital in 2010. Chester Valley evokes the feel of a small town clinic. Being raised in a small farming community, that feeling of honesty, compassion, and pragmatism is very important to me. During my time here we have been devoted to a quality working environment for our employees, caring environment for the pets, and compassion for our clients. We do all of this while we also do excellent medicine. Because of this we have some of the best medical equipment available on the market and an unflappable devotion to continuing education. Our staff works very hard and does so for the love of the pets as well as the love of quality medicine.

Veterinarian

Originally from the great state of Montana, Dr. Jennifer Tobiason is joining our team after spending the last 4 years in small animal practice in Juneau, AK. She enjoys general medicine and soft tissue surgery, with a soft spot for cats. It comes as no surprise that she is the devoted servant to several of the furry, self appointed royals when she is not baking or gardening.

My husband Steven and I currently live in Palmer, Alaska with our dog (Jottin), 3 cats (Icarus, Kahn, & Jax), and 3 geckos (Godzilla, Penelope, & Stubbs).
