Meet Our Veterinarians
Dr. Shanah Frankel, DVM
A born and raised native of Las Vegas, NV, Dr. Frankel decided to give “seasons” a try at The Ohio State University. Throughout her time in Ohio, she explored the wide world of animal care working for the Columbus Zoo, the USDA, a companion animal hospital and running tOSU Horsemen’s Association. After earning both her bachelor’s and veterinary medicine degrees from tOSU, she decided winters just weren’t for her, and returned back west for some very missed sunshine and family. Her professional passions include feline medicine, anesthesia & pain management, dentistry and reproductive medicine. Outside of the office, her favorite hobby is cooking (and therefore second favorite hobby is eating), spending time with family and the great outdoors.
Lara Sosnow, DVM
Lara graduated cum laude from Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine. A Phoenix native, she previously worked for over 12 years in the Financial Services Industry after earning her MBA at New York University. She is happy to be back in the Valley of the Sun following her veterinary dream. At home, Lara has a noisy Plott Hound that keeps her up at night, a cylindrical mixed breed named Olivia, and a ch-ch-ch-chihuahua with lots of personality.
Julia Wiederholt, DVM
Julia grew up in a small town in Iowa. She attended Western Illinois University for her undergraduate degree in Biology. She then graduated from Iowa State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine while concurrently obtaining a Master’s in Public Health. She moved to the Phoenix area in order to escape the Midwest winters. In her free time, she enjoys hiking, paddle boarding, or just relaxing at home with a good book. She has plenty of furry “children” to keep her company including her snaggle-toothed domestic shorthair Big Paw Paw, feisty Chihuahua Nicholas, sweet poodle-mix Liam, affectionate but crazy sphynx Winston, step-pug Leia, and constantly growing sulcate Odysseus.
