Dr. Elizabeth Shines
I grew up in Louisville, KY. After graduating from Western Kentucky University, I earned my doctorate from Auburn University’s College of Veterinary Medicine. I joined Banfield Pet Hospital in 2009 and cared for a variety of pets from mice to Mastiffs!!!
Eventually, I made my way to the Banfield headquarters in Portland, OR where I joined Banfield’s Telehealth team and now the Treat team. I’m still hands on with pets — lots of hands, claws and paws. Over the years, I’ve fostered and found homes for 33 kittens and have a tremendous soft spot for bully breeds and senior pets.
Professionally, I love educating clients about nutrition and preventive care. The health management of senior pets is extremely close to my heart. Personally, I like to be animal diverse with a “tripawed” miniature poodle named Leo, a German Shepherd mix name Addie, two cats named Middleton and Newtown… and a pair of chickens.

I was born and raised in Queens, NY. After receiving my B.A. from Boston University, I attended Harvard University for my pre-veterinary course work. My veterinary degree was received from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine.
I joined Banfield Pet Hospital in 2012 and have loved being able to mentor young Banfield veterinarians. Like many of my colleagues, I have my focuses within veterinary medicine. I love working with and educating clients (pet parents), but I’m also very focused on nutrition and renal disease.
Botany is a long-time passion (90+ orchids and counting). Exotics are another personal and veterinary focus. Along with orchids, I share my world with two ball pythons named Leslie and April, a bearded dragon named Ron, two Red Foot tortoises (Jean-Ralphio and Mona Lisa Saperstein), an African Side Neck turtle named Ann, and, to keep things interesting, Tracy, my 10-year old terrier mix. If you’re a Parks and Recreation fan, you may recognize a few of the names in my crew.
