Dr. Samantha Weaver grew up in rural south central Pennsylvania. It was there that she developed her love for horses, as an active member in both the United States Pony Club (Graduate C-3) and 4-H.
Dr. Weaver received her veterinary degree from the University of Tennessee in 2015. She graduated Valedictorian of her class and received multiple academic and clinical achievement awards. Prior to her veterinary education, she received a Bachelor’s degree in Biology at Juniata College.
Following graduation from veterinary school, Dr. Weaver completed an internship at Peninsula Equine Medical Center in Menlo Park, California. The practice has a high sport horse caseload and specializes in advanced lameness diagnostics and treatment, as well as emergency medicine and general health care.
Dr. Weaver’s veterinary interests include lameness and sports medicine, as well as emergency medicine. She is a member of the International Society of Equine Locomotor Pathology (ISELP), and has attended their modules on diagnosis and treatment of lameness in the performance horse. Dr. Weaver is also an FEI Permitted Treating Veterinarian, and a member of both the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) and American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA).

They share their home with their dog (Tanner), cat (Isabel), and 3 horses (Pippin, Anne, and Shiner).
