Chester Animal Hospital is owned and staffed by people who, not only work with pets, they love pets.
Owner Dan Schupp, DVM, Jodi Schroeder DVM and Judy Pinks, all confirmed animal lovers, work diligently to insure your pets get the best care possible when in the care of persons other than a family member
Dan Schupp, DVM: Dr. Schupp served in the U.S. Army as a paratrooper before going to veterinary school. He graduated from the University of Missouri with a B.S. in Animal Husbandry and got his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree there in 1980. He started working at Dickman Animal Hospital that same year and bought that hospital in 1985, starting Chester Animal Hospital in 1986. He sold Dickman Animal Hospital in 2000 to devote full time to his practice at Chester Animal Hospital. Dr. Schupp currently resides in Perryville, MO with his wife, Liz, and their dog, Carley. Dr. Schupp loves to spend his spare time on the lake with family and friends.
Jodi Schroeder, DVM: Dr. Schroeder sees primarily canine and feline patients, but is interested in expanding her patient list to include bovine, equine, and ovine. She has a special interest in surgery and dentistry. Dr. Schroeder graduated from Illinois College in Jacksonville, IL in 2011 with a Bachelor’s degree in Biology and Chemistry, with a concentration in Pre-Veterinary Medicine. She then attended Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine in Ames, IA, where she concentrated on mixed animal medicine and graduated in May 2014. Dr. Schroeder previously worked at Chester Animal Hospital as a student assistant during the summers of 2004-2008. Dr. Schroeder currently lives in Steeleville with her canine baby, Lily. In her spare time she loves doing anything outdoors including playing sports, fishing, camping, four-wheeling and running. She also loves to watch her St. Louis Cardinals.
Judy Pinks: Judy has been greeting Chester Animal Hospital clients and pets and assisting Dr. Schupp since 1989. During that time, she has worked with many veterinarians and assistants there and has become a friend to hundreds of people and their pets.
