Shaine Hoffman, DVM

Dr. Hoffman was born and raised in Rockton, Illinois, a small town on the Illinois-Wisconsin border. She received her Bachelor’s in Animal Science and Dairy Science from Iowa State University. After completing her undergraduate degree, Dr. Hoffman worked as a veterinary technician in a mixed animal practice. Eventually, she made the decision to return to school and attended Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine, completing her DVM in 2022. Dr. Hoffman met her husband, Shaun, during her time in undergrad and he is the main reason she became an Iowa transplant. The Hoffmans have 4 cats (Opie, Carl, Dwayne, and Darrell), 2 mixed breed dogs (Josie and Betty), a cow-calf herd, and an ever-growing flock of laying hens. Together, they enjoy working on an endless list of projects on their acreage and planning their next cross-country road trip.

Dr. Hoffman’s favorite part of working as a veterinarian is establishing relationships with her clients and collaborating with them to provide the best possible care for their pets that also fits their lifestyles. She especially loves the challenge of internal medicine. Becoming a veterinarian was the realization of a lifelong dream and Dr. Hoffman is grateful for the opportunity to serve her community and be a resource to her clients at all points of their pets’ lives. She is very excited to join the Den Herder team and to meet you and your four-legged family members!
