Dr. Randie Shane
Dr. Shane has been working in the Westchester and Rockland area since graduation from Cornell Vet School over twenty years ago.
She is proud to have helped initiate the first “alternative” veterinary student surgical training program in the country. After graduation, she went on for post doctoral training as an intern at the Animal Medical Center in NYC. She is a firm believer in the integration of eastern and western medicine.
Over the past decade, Dr Shane has developed a strong interest and base of experience in alternative therapies. She particularly loves the hands on work of Tuina (Chinese medical massage). In addition, her veterinary practice includes acupuncture, nutritional and herbal consultation, and qi gong energy work. Dr Shane has a special interest and place in her heart for the geriatric patient. She is also comfortable with “pocket pets”, rabbits and small birds. Dr Shane is known for her patient and gentle manner and finds this to be particularly appreciated by the fearful feline.
Her home is filled with the love of her daughter and numerous rescue animals throughout the years who have been her teachers on a daily basis. Notable are “Penny” the kind-hearted, diabetic labrador, “Rosita Conchita Margarita” chihuahua dulce, and “Abner” the remarkably handsome orange tabby.
