Arizona Pet Vet is the perfect place for me, because we have such a culture of learning and mentorship. I plan on soaking up everything I can from the doctors and staff.
I live with my fiancé Brett, and we have an enormous pup named Cujo. He’s actually four, so he’s not quite a puppy these days. Don’t let the name fool you; he’s an adorable mix of Bull Mastiff and Labrador Retriever and full of love and slobbery kisses. My hobbies include hiking, biking and all things outdoors, reading, as well as baking yummy treats for people.

Dr. Schuyler BurnsI was born in Glendale, AZ, but moved to Tuscon when I was 9 years old. Shortly before moving, my family adopted my childhood dog and best friend, Bear, which is when my passion for animals began. As I got older, I realized how critical and rewarding proper animal health-care was for my dog, so I wanted a career where I could help deliver this same care to other pets. I began by attending The University of Arizona for my BS in Veterinary Sciences. While in school, I worked in two research facilities, where I practiced husbandry with many animals, including monkeys! I received my Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Ross University, and recently joined Arrow Animal Hospital & Grooming in March 2019! As for my veterinary interests, I enjoy surgery (specifically orthopedic) and internal medicine cases.
I live with my Australian Shepard, Duke, and his (Golden Retriever) baby brother, Oliver. When I’m outside of work, I love mountain biking, hiking, and fishing - plus going to the trap and skeet range from time to time. I look forward to providing your pets with the best quality health-care they deserve!
