Dr. Sheryl Gilbert-McDonald, Associate DVM
Dr. Sheryl Gilbert-McDonald grew up in Zilwaukee with a variety of pets including a beloved pony named Peanut. As a child, she knew she wanted to be a veterinarian due to the many hours she spent playing, loving and caring for her pets. Her dream of returning to the area where she grew up came true when she graduated from the Michigan State College of Veterinary Medicine before later joining the team at Gratiot Animal Hospital.
Dr. Gilbert-McDonald is a member of the Michigan Veterinary Association, American Veterinary Medical Association, American Animal Hospital Association, and the Human-Animal Bond Association.
She currently lives with a bevy of animals including three house cats: Rocky, who uses her head as a pillow at night, Zephyr, who is a shy but sweet and loving cat and Cinder, a stray that was dropped off on the road in front of her house. She also has two barn cats: Jazz and Storm, who are mother and daughter! She is also looking to adopt a puppy in the near future, too!
In her free time, Dr. Gilbert-McDonald enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. She also enjoys working in her yard and is an avid photographer who enjoys taking pictures of family events, pets, wildlife and nature.
