Dr. Andy Stevens

Dr. Stevens is happy to be back to his roots in Dane County and caring for Madison area canines at City Dog Vet. And we are thrilled to have his friendly face and the wide spectrum of experience he has brought along.

A 2014 graduate of the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine, Dr. Stevens began his career practicing at a 24-hour emergency hospital in Littleton, Colorado where he discovered his passion for orthopedic surgery through a three-year mentorship. In addition to his time in practice, Dr. Stevens also helped develop a low-cost fracture repair program for underserved communities, which resulted in the completion of over 60 fracture repairs in the span of two years. Now that Dr. Stevens is back in his hometown of Madison, he has been performing orthopedic surgeries for over six years including extracapsular CCL repair, patella surgery, FHO, and Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy (TPLO) surgeries. He loves to help our City Dogs but also works closely with Madison-area referring veterinarians for the orthopedic surgery needs of their patients.

Dr. Stevens has been a long-term member of the Wisconsin Veterinary Medical Association and the American Veterinary Medical Association. In addition to his wide spectrum of general and orthopedic surgeries, he loves building relationships with clients and taking time to discuss overall wellness, preventative care and management of chronic conditions.

Groomer

David

David trained as a groomer at the New York City School of Dog Grooming after which he worked at a New Jersey shop called the Hungry Puppy! His career took a change when he decided to take the very respectable leap to becoming a high school English teacher, which he did in Madison for the past 14 years. Fortunately for us and our City Dogs, his passion for working with pets and practicing the art of grooming has returned. He is now working alongside Michelle, polishing up his impressive cutting skills again and learning the special little things her grooming dogs and clients appreciate. Michelle will make her own life change and move to Colorado in July, sadly saying goodbye to the City Dogs she has grown to love.
Although David grew up in New Jersey and also lived in Atlanda, Maine, and Pittsburgh, he considers Madison his home now. He and his partner, Heather, love getting to the Farmer’s Marker every Saturday, birding at places like Cherokee Marsh, Holy Wisdom, and the Arboretum, and biking all over the city. He’s thrilled to be able to bike to work at City Dog now.
David and Heather have two City Dogs of their own. Roosevelt (Rosey) is an 8-years-old (really smart) goofball newfy/Bearded Collie mix (who may have a little scenthound in him) who they’ve had since a puppy. Agnes is a 2-years-old corgi-greyhound-or-whippet mix (possibly with some sighthound) who was rescued at 6-months and who worships Rosey!

Fun facts straight from David:

Hobbies: I enjoy birding, photography, reading, writing (I used to write part-time for Bleacher Report and SBNation mostly about Big Ten football with a focus on the Iowa Hawkeyes), biking, working out, watching either really trashy movies or really artsy movies and I collect orchids.

Interesting facts: If I could only watch one movie for the rest of my life that movie would be The Good, the Bad and the Ugly; if I could only listen to one song for the rest of my life that song would be "Wasted Years" by Iron Maiden.

Welcome David!
