Dr. Stephanie Knapp brings her experience in radiology as well as her interest in small animal oncology to VSH. She received her veterinary degree from the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine and completed a rotating small animal internship at VCA Sacramento Veterinary Referral Center. She practiced as an emergency veterinarian in Northern California for two years before returning to her home state of Missouri to complete a four-year radiology residency back at the University of Missouri.
Dr. Knapp has a particular interest in multi-modality imaging and collaboration with other specialists, especially in relation to cancer patients. She received advanced training in PET imaging as it started to become more accessible and common in veterinary medicine.
I became a veterinary specialist because I had so many unanswered questions as an emergency veterinarian. I wanted to be excellent at everything and I knew there was so much more to learn. So I narrowed my field to radiology, which has always been my favorite piece of the puzzle in patient diagnostics. Now, as a specialist, I have realized even more so that unanswered questions are a never-ending battle. There is always more to learn about something.
