Dr. Doug Schrepel, Practice Owner
After receiving a Bachelor of Science Degree from the University of Kansas in 1981 I spent 7 years as a practicing Certified Public Accountant working first in Kansas City, Missouri and then in Durango, Colorado. In 1989 I returned to school at Colorado State University where I completed a second Bachelor of Science Degree in Biological Science followed by a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine Degree, graduating Summa Cum Laude in 1994. School was followed by six years working in veterinary practices in Wenatchee, Washington and Colorado Springs, Colorado. In March 2000, Dr. Chmelka and I joined partnership and founded Aspen View Veterinary Hospital, P.C..
In addition to my commitment to my many canine and feline patients, I also have a fondness for caring for rabbits. I take a special interest in pain management, and in strengthening the human-animal bond. My current professional memberships include the American Veterinary Medical Association, the Colorado Veterinary Medical Association, the Colorado Springs Area Veterinary Society, and the Cornell Feline Health Center.
I share my life with veterinarian, Dr. Laurie Clauss. Together we love and attempt to inspire three dazzling adult children as they pursue their passions in universities throughout the country. We also share our home with a Pit bull mix and Westie mix rescues, and several cats (a number that is ever changing as we both work with rescue groups and the Humane Society). My wife and I are vegetarians and enjoy exploring new culinary ideas, and travel whenever we get the chance.
