MEET THE EQUINE SPECIALISTS
Laura M. Harris, DVM – www.lauraharrisdvm.com
Originally from North Carolina, Dr. Harris graduated from Purdue University School of Veterinary Medicine in 1983. Following one year in a rural mixed animal practice in Wisconsin, she moved to Phoenix, AZ to begin employment at Chaparral Animal Hospital where she saw both equine and small animal cases.
In 1988 she left Chaparral Animal Hospital to establish Equine DVM, Inc. and in 1989 she purchased Village Plaza Animal Hospital, an exotic and small animal practice in Phoenix, AZ. For the next thirteen years Dr. Harris treated exotic and small animal patients in the hospital and equine medical and surgical cases in the field. Eventually both practices expanded and time limitations forced the sale of Village Plaza Animal Hospital.
Now spring brings breeding, foaling, preventative health care and early season horse shows. Summer heralds the onset of weather related health concerns and through the fall and winter care of both pleasure and performance horses fills the practice schedule.
In 2002 Dr. Harris became a member of the Veterinary Honor role for the Morris Animal Foundation. In 2004 the American Association of Equine Practitioners presented her with the national My Vet Matters award. And in 2009 and 2010 she was selected as Best in Scottsdale / Livestock Veterinarian.
Dr. Harris and her husband, Glenn Shearer, live in Scottsdale, AZ. Their home is shared by a menagerie of animals, large and small.
Greg Byrne, DVM – www.equinevetaz.com
Graduated from Colorado State University School of Veterinary Medicine in 1996 and began his veterinary career with Dr. Sparks that same year. Dr. Byrne is continually updating his education to bring his clients the best the veterinary profession has to offer. His professional services include equine sports medicine, lameness and joint disease, and reproduction. Dr. Byrne has been a mentor to veterinarians, veterinary technicians, students and horse owners alike.
