Dr. Shelley Fetterolf

Veterinarian

Even at a young age, growing up in Ashland, Pennsylvania, Dr. Fetterolf had a strong interest in science and medicine. She spent a lot of time with her uncle who was a nurse and attributes his influence on her as a major factor in her career decision. She can remember saying, “I want to be a pediatric neurosurgeon” long before she really understood what that meant.

Dr. Fetterolf joined AMC of Goose Creek in October 2015. She has enjoyed developing relationships with clients and patients, something she was rarely given the opportunity to do as an ER Vet. She is looking forward to practicing preventative medicine as well as managing the acutely ill and provide long term care for her patients. In January 2016 she began her journey into Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine, something which had previously only been a dream, and is currently enrolled in the Chi Institute’s Spring 2016 Small Animal Acupuncture Program. You can learn more about this holistic approach at http://www.tcvm.com/About/WhatisTCVM.

In her free time she enjoys traveling with her fiance Martin, kayaking, yoga, and hiking. They can often be found enjoying nature and the great outdoors with Charlie (a Beagle) and Annie (an American Foxhound). She is looking forward to now having time to explore Charleston and the surrounding beaches and perhaps even learn to play the violin.

She is currently an Officer of Trident Veterinary Medical Association and looks forward to meeting more local veterinarians and getting involved in community projects and organizations.

You should see the faces of all the wonderful people when I visit White Oak Manor every Friday. I shower them with kisses, hugs, and affection and receive plenty in return. Often I will find a soft blanket to rest on while my mommy chats with the residents.

If you and your human are interested in becoming a therapy team(or you just need some Chihuahua love), please come and visit me and my mom, Charlene, at AMC on Friday afternoons between 3-5 pm. The reward for becoming a therapy team is priceless!
