Located in Peoria Arizona, Peoria Animal Hospital has been in business since 1973. Our Veterinarians gain satisfaction from helping area pet owners keep their animals well and by healing animals that have become ill. Few things in life are as satisfying as the loving companionship that a pet can provide. Taking the time to learn all you can about what's best for your pet is the first important step toward a long, rewarding and healthy relationship and we're here to help.
Sheryl K. Scrimager, DVM
I graduated from Michigan State University in 1968 and practiced small animal medicine for 9 years in Michigan.
The year of 1977 saw the whole family - myself, my husband, cockatiel, and poodle trekking west to Arizona. We settled in the Phoenix area where I have worked at several area practices over the years. I have been here at Peoria Animal Hospital since December, 1994.
My practice philosophy is to be honest and communicate as fully as possible with clients about their pets. I try to give each patient the time and attention needed for the situation.
Then I go home at night and get thoroughly sniffed over by my 2 poodles who want to know if they are still my best buddies.
