Drs. Aaron and Amy Schaffer graduated from the K-State College of Veterinary Medicine in 2015. They moved to Morrill, KS where they established Apogee Animal Health, Inc., a mobile veterinary practice that focuses on food animal service work.
Aaron grew up one of twelve children on a 100-cow dairy farm in central Illinois. He attended Parkland College and the University of Illinois prior to starting vet school at K-State where he met his wife, Amy. While in vet school, he also attained an M.S. in Veterinary Biomedical Sciences under Dr. Dan Thomson. His research focused on the effects of BRD in dairy calves on long-term production as dairy cows. Aaron is a member of the American Association of Bovine Practitioners, Academy of Veterinary Consultants, and American Veterinary Medical Association. In his free time, Aaron enjoys being with his family, gardening, woodworking, and raising chickens.
Amy hails from central Kansas and attended K-State for all of her undergraduate and graduate studies. In addition to her DVM, Amy also has a Master of Public Health (MPH) degree and is a member of the U.S. Animal Health Association and its Committee on Animal Emergency Management. At this point in life, veterinary medicine has been replaced by her primary duties as wife and mother to their growing family. In her "spare time," she enjoys gardening, sewing, cooking, and crafting.
Together, they enjoy meeting others in the area communities and helping those around them.
