About St. Matthews Animal Clinic

outside sign

St. Matthews Animal Clinic is a special place—with lots of special people, including our staff of four experienced veterinarians who are passionate about pet care! The clinic was founded by Dr. Bruce Catlett, a man who was very dear to his clients because of his willingness to help everyone who came to the clinic. He was known for his big heart and his passion. Although Dr. Catlett passed away in 2001, he is still an inspiration and a reminder of the clinic’s long-term commitment to the community and to the region’s animals.

​Dr. Mike Schardein bought the clinic in 2002. Since then, the facility has been extensively updated with ultrasound equipment, laser therapeutics, and advanced post-surgical facilities. We still focus on providing the kind of caring service that Dr. Catlett modeled. We want to stay in touch and know how our patients are doing, and we try to accommodate emergency situations through our later hours.
