Dr. Shannon Heintz, a 2020 graduate of the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine, knew she wanted to work with animals from a young age.
“I always loved medicine and science, and I wanted to apply this passion to treat and advocate for animals,” she says. Her professional veterinary interests include dentistry, dermatology, surgery, and neurology. She has a particular passion for veterinary dentistry because it has such a profound effect on her patients.

Among her hobbies are hiking, traveling, painting, yoga, and cooking. She shares her life with Kiwi, a tuxedo cat who she says is “dermatologically challenged".
" After a failed visit at animal first Haddon township that doctor was only interested in blood work and exrays. He would not give me any info on why my cat was not eating without paying for tests. So I went online and came across this place. I'm so glad I did Dr. Shannon Heintz she really gave me a lot of options for my cat who was not eating and not using her litter for dys. She was very nice and kind and very gentle with Chloe the medicine she gave Chloe the next day Chloe was back to her usual self jumping for Joy. I truly recommend Audubon Family Veterinary the staff and doctors are Great!! "
