Meridian Veterinary Care Mission Statement.


 

Dr. Angie Stamm, DVM, CVA • Owner

Dr. Stamm obtained her veterinary degree from UC Davis Veterinary School is 2001 and became a certified veterinary acupuncturist from the Chi Institute of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine in 2002.  She practiced in the Placerville area for five years as an equine and small ruminant veterinarian and since 2005 has practiced exclusively with small animals in both Sacramento and El Dorado Counties. In 2012, Dr. Stamm opened Meridian Veterinary Care in an effort to bring a variety of integrative wellness options to pet owners.

Dr. Stamm’s passion is educating pet owners about optimal wellness through the use of nutrition, supplements, herbs and acupuncture. She is experienced in combining both Western and Eastern medical treatments. Though she prefers to rely heavily on nutrition, acupuncture and herbal medications for both well and ill patients, traditional drug therapies are also used when appropriate.

Dr. Stamm lives in Fair Oaks with her husband, three children, four dogs, 2 goats and a llama.  She and her daughters are competitive hunter/jumper equestrians. She also enjoys hiking, camping and cooking.

Professional Associations:


 

Jean Hescox • Veterinary Technician

The veterinary field is something I came to later in life, after stints in Wildlife Biology, Computer Science, and various volunteer jobs. I have been a Veterinary Technician since 2005 and a Registered Veterinary Technician since 2007, after graduating from the Veterinary Technology program at Cosumnes River College. I enjoy working as a technician, especially interacting with the animals and their families. I also enjoy the camaraderie of my fellow staff members. When I’m not working, I like to spend time with my husband, Bill, our animals, and our friends and family. I enjoy biking, running, gardening, hiking, kayaking, camping, skiing, playing guitar, reading, listening to music, traveling, and playing board games.
