Emma Schaffel DVM
Emma grew up in northern New Jersey and spent many years working at horse barns in the area. She graduated with a major in Animal Science and a minor in Spanish from Clemson University in 2013, where she also rode on the Equestrian Team. In 2017, Emma graduated from the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine, where she focused on large animal medicine.
In addition to dairy medicine and surgery, Emma sees a lot of small ruminants in the area. She enjoys working on individual animal diagnostic and treatment plans, as well as developing herd/flock deworming and vaccination protocols. Emma enjoys small ruminant reproduction and travels throughout the area to perform laparoscopic artificial insemination on sheep and goats. She also works with pigs, horses, and camelids.
Emma offers bilingual services to our clients. She spent seven months in Central and South America, which improved her language skills. Emma enjoys translating at on-farm meetings and teaching dairy workers about cow handling, disease prevention, and treatment. Effective communication is essential for overall farm efficiency and cow health.
In her free time, Emma enjoys camping, running, and spending time with her dog Samson and chickens.
