Dr. Shelby Gadsby


Lead Veterinarian

Dr. Gadsby was born and raised in Washington, graduating from Ridgefield High School. She then attended the University of Washington where she competed in the pentathlon and heptathlon for the track and field team, while also earning her Bachelor’s degree in Physiology. After college she joined the Forever Pet Dental team working as a veterinary assistant and during this time she found out that she was accepted into the globally recognized Doctor of Veterinary Medicine program at the University of Melbourne. She decided to pack up her bags and dive head first into the Australian lifestyle, all while gaining experience in a variety of species. She has experience working with small animal patients, ranging from the usual cats and dogs, down to the smaller species such as reptiles and pocket pets. She has had a passion for providing the highest quality dental care for patients ever since her time at Forever Pet Dental, and is beyond excited to be rejoining the team. When not at work she enjoys getting outdoors and going hiking and camping with her husband, as well as continuing her passion for running. After several years of living overseas and in Eastern Washington, Dr. Gadsby and her husband are thrilled to be back in the Vancouver area with their fur-babies to start the next chapter of their lives.
