Shannon Leska DVM, CVA, CVFT - Dr. Shannon Leska began her traditional veterinary career in 1994, when she graduated from KSU, in Manhattan, KS. Her early years as a veterinarian, led her to work in mixed animal clinics as an associate, and then as a practice owner until 2006. Then, she moved to North Texas, to pursue equine medicine and reproductive services until 2015, when she and her husband, Alain, moved to the Pacific Northwest. There, she developed her interests in eastern veterinary medicine, and worked in an integrative practice that allowed her to use acupuncture, food therapy, herbal and plant based medicine to aid her patients. Now, she has recently returned to Texas to be near family, and to work with Dr. Smallwood at Integrative Veterinary Wellness in Richardson, TX. Here, she is excited to focus on her holistic interests in veterinary medicine, in order to equip her IVW patients with tools to manage/prevent potential health concerns.
