Dr. Tricia Stabler
Dr. Stabler joined our practice in July of 2012 and we are thrilled to have her as part of our GVAH family. Dr. Stabler has special interests in internal medicine and behavior. She lives in Laytonsville with her husband and 2 children. I grew up on a grain and beef cattle farm. On the farm, I was always the one that raised the orphan calves or tried to sneak the farm kittens home with me. But it wasn’t until I went to school at Delaware Valley College that I realized I really wanted to become a veterinarian. While working as a technician at a clinic, I always enjoyed the problem solving that came along with medicine and I loved watching surgeries. After graduating with a large animal science major, I attended veterinary school at Purdue University in Indiana. But, I always knew I would be back to Maryland. Now, many years later, I still love being a small animal veterinarian and working at Green Valley Animal Hospital.
