At Shepherd Spring Animal Hospital, caring for pets is our passion

Here, we treat pets like family. We understand how important your companion is to you — because they’re there for you through the thick and thin of life, with a wagging tail or a happy purr, and unconditional love. Our goal is to be your partner in taking care of your pet’s physical and mental wellbeing, so you can enjoy many happy years together. So, whether your pet needs a checkup with a doctor… a caring team and top-notch medical treatments when they’re ill… or, some advice on the best food for them or how to care for them at home — we’re here for you! At Shepherd Spring Animal Hospital, we see dogs, cats, birds, reptiles, small mammals, and more. And, we’ll strive to make their visit a comfortable and positive experience.

Meet Our Team

  • Dr. Norm Griggs

    I grew up in Memphis, TN with my 3 brothers, sons of a machinist and a “stay at home” Mom. As a child and teen of the 60’s, I struggled through school. After high school, I enlisted in the US Marine Corps. As it turned out, those 4 years changed my life far more than any formal education after that. Self-determination, responsibility to myself and others, and a structured life, where effort and excellence was recognized, profoundly changed my personal view of myself. I learned about life, death and the personal rewards for a job well done. My peers hailed from all over the United States; farm kids, getto kids, rich kids, smart kids and semi-insane kids. I say “kids” because, looking back, we really were kids. I “grew up” with this incredibly diverse mix of peers. I learned my “place” in life from these buddies from everwhere. But, most of all, I learned that I could do something meaningful with my life if I was willing to work to make my dreams come true. As cheesy as it sounds, that is where I was forged. By nature, I am hard headed about what is right and wrong. Honor, to me, is the most important virtue a person can possess. I don’t propose that makes me special or different. It is simply what is in my heart.

    I love caring for animals. I feel their discomfort, both physical and emotional. I admire the brutal honesty of children, cats, dogs and other animals. Each can tell you that they don’t feel well, but the challenge that I enjoy so much is learning and understanding what is wrong with them, and doing something to help them.

    I try to surround myself with caring, like minded people. They all work hard, often under very difficult circumstances, to help our patients enjoy a better life. Their expectations inspire me to be my best, each day, to lead our team in making a meaningful difference in the lives of those trusted in our care.

    Not a single patient of mine has ever “thanked” me with words. But they do thank me. No words are needed. But just as important to me, it is the expressed appreciation from their owners, those who care so much about them, that is moving beyond words. So, it is for you great people, and your profound love for your furry, feathered, or “other” friends that I dedicate Shepherd Spring Animal Hospital. It is and will continue to be, our mission, to partner with you to ensure your pets enjoy a long and healthy life. And, I promise to always see that mission fulfilled with grace, honor, dignity, and compassion.

    Thank you all, from the bottom of my heart.

  • Dr. Sarah Petrario

    Dr. Petrario is a wonderful addition to our family! She received her BS degree from Hofstra University and her DVM from St. George University. She enjoys spending time with her husband and many fur-kids at home including two horses, two English bulldogs, two parakeets, cats and fish. When not at Shepherd Spring, she enjoys horseback riding, attending Morgan Hunter shows, boating, and "pretending" to fish with her husband.

    "One day I would like to write a children's book about my dog Priscilla, my English bulldog. One day, she rampaged the pantry and stole potatoes. She had them scattered and hidden throughout the house and back yard that we continued to find potatoes for weeks at a time! I think it would make a great children's story. "

She went on to attend Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine where she completed her final year at the Royal Veterinary College in London, England.

    She currently has 2 cats and 1 dog, with every expectation of adding to her fur family when the right additions come along.
