Dr. Schneider - "I truly care for the pet as if it were my own and I strive to always give each of my clients the time and attention they all deserve."  Dr. Schneider graduated from WSU's School of Veterinary Medicine in 1974after receiving a degree in biology at PLU.  His dream of becoming a veterinarian began at the age 11 when he experienced , first hand, the caring and compassion provided by Dr. Van Hoosen during an emergency visit the the veterinary hospital on Christmas Eve with his cocker Spaniel, Penny.  He took this experience and has based his business on the simple premise that you should always treat others as you would like to be treated.  Dr. Schneider has had the privilege of treating the pets of the children and grandchildren of his first clients and reminiscing about their childhood visits to the hospital.

When not working, Dr. Schneider can be found helping with his wife's roses, spending time woodworking, or working on his corvette.  He enjoys his time with his wife, three daughters, and four grandchildren, attending church and supporting the Auburn community, Kiwanis, AYR, Young Life, and several veterinary associations along with being a founding board member of the Auburn Valley Humane Society.

A Word About Auburn Veterinary Hospital

Dr. Cullom - "I feel I provide a voice for animals unable to express their pain, then I get to provide relief by working towards making them better.  It's very gratifying!"  Dr. Cullom attended PLU before graduating from the Royal College of Veterinary Medicine.  She literally grew up at Auburn Veterinary Hospital watching her father Dr. Schneider.   Always a hometown girl, she new she'd be back after finishing the required five years in London for her degree.  She stayed an extra year practicing in London while her husband finished his schooling to return home and begin working with her dad and Dr. Jow.  She specializes in Surgery, Ultra Sound and Laser applications and has expanded the practice to include pocket pets.  

Dr. Cullom and Dr. Jon Cullom live in Auburn with their two children where they enjoy taking local trips.  She loves reading, knitting, and sewing.  Her favorite sewing projects include hand making the kids Halloween costumes and clothes for her daughter's American Girl dolls.

Dr. Jow - I have always been fascinated by the complexity of animals and how they become such an integral part of our lives.  Caring for your pet's health needs has been a satisfying experience for me because it directly impacts the quality of life for you their owners.  It has always been extremely satisfying to help people create lasting memories with their aging pets.

Within the practice I particularly enjoy soft tissue surgery and wound management.  It has become a special interest of mine to take on the challenge of adverse behavior problems and work with the owner towards a satisfactory outcome. 

I grew up in Hawaii but have called the pacific Northwest my home for over 35 years with my wife and four children.  After graduating from the University of Idaho Veterinary Medicine I came to call Auburn home where I enjoy reading, listening to classical music and sounds from the sixties along with exploring to places and restaurants, hiking and team sports and collecting commemorative stamps.  I enjoy being a leader in my church and supporting the community including being a founding board member of the Auburn Valley Humane Society.
