Dr. Shelby Rexford

DVM, CCAT pending

Dr. Shelby you may notice looks like Dr. Amelia Rexford. That’s correct, Dr. Shelby and Dr. Amelia are identical twins, both veterinarians with a background in veterinary rehab. They joined the Walking Paws Rehab team at the same time and trained together. They motivate each other and share their knowledge freely. It’s been amazing seeing how they support each other to become the best doctors they can be.

Dr. Shelby’s passion for caring for animals began early in life. As a Montana native she grew
up caring for a variety of animals from horses and dogs to cats, geese and a peacock. She received her doctorate in veterinary medicine from the University College Dublin in Ireland! Graduating from Ireland was a unique and amazing experience for her. We love hearing about her years in Dublin. Dr. Shelby is finishing up with her certified companion animal rehabilitation therapist degree from North Carolina State University.

Prior to attending veterinary school she worked at a rehabilitation center for animals in Los Angeles for 4 years where she discovered how important rehabilitation is to aid in
healing and maintain the quality of life in our beloved pets.

In her downtime she loves riding and training her horse in dressage, skiing, hiking and traveling. Dr. Shelby is hardworking and a passionate doctor who truly cares about establishing a connection with patients and their guardians. She takes the time to understand the different needs of each patient and think critically about what will benefit them the most. She is dedicated to life-long learning and staying up to date on current practices and procedures. If you have Dr. Shelby know that you will have a doctor that cares hugely, is patient, and will go above and beyond to for your pet.
