Erin Shufflebarger, DVM
From an early age, Dr. Shufflebarger knew that her love of animals would lead her to a career in veterinary medicine. She grew up with dogs, and fostered many cats and kittens throughout veterinary school. Despite being allergic to most animals, she was determined to pursue her dream.
Dr. Shufflebarger received her bachelor’s degree in biology from the University of Colorado in Boulder, graduating Phi Beta Kappa. She received her doctorate of veterinary medicine in 2008 from Colorado State University, where she was a member of Phi Zeta Honor Society. She practiced in Colorado Springs for six years, but was excited to return to Fort Collins, where she grew up.
She enjoys all aspects of general practice, especially internal medicine, preventative wellness care, soft tissue surgery, and end-of-life issues. She lives with her husband Jason, children Emery and Landon, cat Geek, and a German Shorthaired Pointer mix named Peyton (named after Manning of course). She enjoys hiking, biking, tennis, and snowboarding
Lindsay Foster, DVM
Animals have always been a big part of Dr. Foster’s life. She grew up in western Oregon where she was an active member of 4H and raised cattle, sheep, goats, and pigs. She also grew up owning and showing Arabian horses on the breed circuit. Since she was a little girl, she has always wanted to be a veterinarian. After high school, she moved to Fort Collins to complete her Bachelors of Science in Biological Sciences at CSU. She moved back to her home state of Oregon to complete her veterinary medicine training and graduated with her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Oregon State University in her hometown of Corvallis, OR.
She took a job as a mixed animal Veterinarian on the western slope of CO in Grand Junction after graduation. Although she loved the variety of mixed animal practice, she eventually decided to make the move over the mountains to her favorite city of Fort Collins and settle down in small animal practice at Front Range Veterinary Clinic. She still has two horses, along with three cats and one dog.
Dr. Foster has special interests in small animal dentistry, behavior, and pain management. She is excited to be a part of the Front Range Veterinary family!
