Canaan Shores, DVM
Dr. Canaan Shores is a native of Chandlerville, IL. He received his veterinary doctorate from the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine and training from the University of Edinburgh Royal School of Veterinary Studies.
He most enjoys helping people help their pets.
He shares his home with Gus and Gabbie, two Shih-Tzu/Yorkie mixes. They are not true "siblings," but they sure act like it sometimes!
Dr. Shores has a special interest in acupuncture, and can help pets with arthritis pain, gastrointestinal disturbances, neurologic conditions, immune system dysfunctions, and many other problems, all with some very small needles. He also has an interest in internal medicine, soft tissue surgery, dentistry, therapeutic laser treatment, and rehabilitation post surgery and/or for osteoarthritis.
Dr. Shores spends most of his time outside of work with his family. In his occasional free time, he enjoys reading (mostly non-fiction -- theology, history, biographies), gardening, woodworking, and drinking coffee with friends.
