Dr. Christopher Schelkopf joined Bethany Animal Hospital at the beginning of 2018. He brings a wealth of experience and passion to the clinic. He graduated from University of Illinois’College of Veterinary Medicine in 2010. Dr. Schelkopf's areas of professional interest are internal medicine, soft tissue surgery, and client communications.
Dr. Schelkopf says, "I find that one of the most important aspects of veterinary medicine is not only establishing a trusting relationship with the pet but also with the owner. I truly enjoy bonding with the entire “family” so I can best determine their needs and provide a happy and healthy lifestyle for their pet. Seeing a happy and healthy pet year after year provides a level of enjoyment to me, the pet, and the owner, which is my favorite aspect of being a veterinarian."
