Located in Peoria Arizona, Peoria Animal Hospital has been in business since 1973. Our Veterinarians gain satisfaction from helping area pet owners keep their animals well and by healing animals that have become ill. Few things in life are as satisfying as the loving companionship that a pet can provide. Taking the time to learn all you can about what's best for your pet is the first important step toward a long, rewarding and healthy relationship and we're here to help.
Sheryl K. Scrimager, DVM
I graduated from Michigan State University in 1968 and practiced small animal medicine for 9 years in Michigan.
The year of 1977 saw the whole family - myself, my husband, cockatiel, and poodle trekking west to Arizona. We settled in the Phoenix area where I have worked at several area practices over the years. I have been here at Peoria Animal Hospital since December, 1994.
My practice philosophy is to be honest and communicate as fully as possible with clients about their pets. I try to give each patient the time and attention needed for the situation.
Then I go home at night and get thoroughly sniffed over by my 2 poodles who want to know if they are still my best buddies.
Thomas M. Satkus III, DVM
Dr. Satkus grew up in Homewood, IL which is a suburb of Chicago. He graduated from the University of Nebraska (Go Huskers!) with a BS in Animal Science. Dr. Satkus then went on to the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine where he obtained his DVM degree.
Tom and his beautiful wife Kalleen met at the University of Nebraska in the fall of 1998 and have been married since July 2003.
Tom and Kalleen welcomed their son, Luke Matthew, in July 2008. The family expanded in October 2010 when their daughter, Paige Katherine, was born. They enjoy watching them grow and all of the thrills that parenthood has to offer.
Tom & Kalleen became the owners of Peoria Animal Hospital in January 2015. They strive to provide the outstanding veterinary care that Peoria Animal Hospital has offered since 1973.
Tom has always had a tremendous love for animals and started volunteering for the local humane society on his 16th birthday. The Satkus' share their home with their dogs, a poodle mix name Leonard and a Kerry Blue Terrier named Kelsey. Leonard was adopted from the Arizona Poodle Rescue (http://arizonapoodlerescue.org) and Kelsey was adopted after finishing a career as a show dog.
Dr. Satkus joined the veterinary team of Peoria Animal Hospital in March 2012. He spent three years practicing in Surprise, AZ and three years practicing in southeastern North Carolina. He is responsible for working with animals and their owners in sickness and in health. He especially enjoys educating clients about preventative healthcare measures that will help improve the quality of life of their pets. He also finds it very satisfying helping a client make it through a difficult time when their beloved companions are not well.
In addition to seeing cats and dogs, Dr. Satkus sees guinea pigs, rats, mice, gerbils and hamsters.
