We have 6 pets, Larry, Martini, Hope, Tibbles, Pinksis-Pinksis, and Drool Baby.

A semester in Australia thoroughly thawed me out and made me forever appreciative of sandy beaches and cheerful Aussies. Moving to Arizona is the fulfillment of a childhood dream to live near the cacti and grandma and grandpa. I share my home with five dogs: Pharoah, Ramsey, Sasha, Sidney, and Skittles. I, their adoring owner, enjoy playing with them, watching movies, hiking, camping, and driving. I thoroughly enjoy working with the dynamic staff, amazing doctors, and wonderful clients here at Arrow Animal Hospital and Grooming.

Dr. Schuyler Burns
I was born in Glendale, AZ, but moved to Tuscon when I was 9 years old. Shortly before moving, my family adopted my childhood dog and best friend, Bear, which is when my passion for animals began. As I got older, I realized how critical and rewarding proper animal health-care was for my dog, so I wanted a career where I could help deliver this same care to other pets. I began by attending The University of Arizona for my BS in Veterinary Sciences. While in school, I worked in two research facilities, where I practiced husbandry with many animals, including monkeys! I received my Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Ross University, and joined Arrow Animal Hospital & Grooming in March 2019. As for my veterinary interests, I enjoy surgery (specifically orthopedic) and internal medicine cases.
I live with my Australian Shepard, Duke, and his (Golden Retriever) baby brother, Oliver. When I’m outside of work, I love mountain biking, hiking, and fishing - plus going to the trap and skeet range from time to time. I look forward to providing your pets with the best quality health-care they deserve!

I am specifically interested in areas including anesthesia, feline medicine, reproductive medicine, pain management, and dentistry.
