Dr. Deborah Shanks
Dr. Shanks’ dream to improve the lives of animals began in elementary school in Grapevine, Texas and it became a reality when she joined Gully Animal Hospital. After graduating with a B.S. in Animal Science from Texas Tech University, Deborah attended St. George's University in Grenada, West Indies. Upon completion of her clinical year at University of Florida, she joined Gully Animal Hospital in March 2013. Dr. Shanks’ professional interests include soft tissue surgery and neurology, but she enjoys all aspects of veterinary medicine.
Outside of work, Deborah enjoys traveling and spending time with her friends and family. She also enjoys being outdoors, on the lake, at the beach, or by the pool. She has two dogs: Brody, who she rescued while in Grenada, and Jellybean, who joined her family last year.
