Dr. Shivers has loved veterinary medicine from the very beginning. Growing up in Miami, he cared for dogs, cats, orphaned squirrels, turtles, and hermit crabs. After getting his veterinary degree from the University of Florida, he began practicing in Jacksonville, Fl. A desire to be closer to family and great fishing led him to Ft. Myers and Indian Creek.
Dr. Shivers believes in having a high-quality, low-stress hospital that clients and their pets feel good about visiting. His favorite part of his job is getting to interact with our clients and pets. Dr. Shivers loves the feeling of getting a sick pet back on its feet and playing at home again. In his spare time, he enjoys saltwater fishing, traveling, diving, and cooking. Dr. Shivers has a Catahoula hound dog named Remy. He is happy to be here, where he can enjoy the laid-back atmosphere, beautiful gulf waters, and friendly residents of Ft. Myers.
