Veterinarians of Fieldstone Animal Hospital

Dr. SawyerDr. Heather L. Sawyer, DVM, Owner

Dr. Heather L. Sawyer opened Fieldstone Animal Hospital in 2008, after working eight years as an associate veterinarian in a New York animal practice.

A member of Phi Beta Kappa, Dr. Sawyer graduated as the salutatorian of Gettysburg College in 1994 with her bachelor's degree in biology. She worked for one year as a veterinary assistant in a mixed animal practice before entering Cornell University School of Veterinary Medicine, where she earned her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2000.

Dr. Sawyer's goal is genuine and direct: to foster healthier relationships between people and their pets by providing quality healthcare for animals and educating clients so they can make confident pet care decisions. The ability to participate in people's experiences with their pets is deeply satisfying to her. Dr. Sawyer is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association.

As for her inspiration to become a veterinarian, Dr. Sawyer recalls Scratcher, her childhood cat. "He was my introduction to the importance of the human-animal bond as well as to a career in veterinary medicine," she says. "My cat was one of a few important "people" who helped me emotionally through a very difficult time when my father passed away of cancer when I was only twelve." In fact, throughout her childhood and college years, Dr. Sawyer looked forward to veterinary visits with Scratcher. And when he became diabetic at 10 years of age, the veterinary treatments and ongoing medical attention afforded them six additional healthy and happy years together.

Dr. Sawyer loves the science and challenge of veterinary medicine- solving medical mysteries and puzzles, day-to-day diversity, and ultimately experiencing its rewards.

When she isn't at work, she spends time with her husband Kent, their children Jacob and Benjamin, and her furry family- Sydney, the Australian shepherd mix; Myrtle and Pippin, the cats; and the hobby ducks. She enjoys gardening, quilting, hiking in the mountains, boating, and has been a lifelong soccer player.

Associate Veterinarian Andrea B. Stanley joined the team at Fieldstone Animal Hospital in March of 2016. A native of Massachusetts, she attended the University of Massachusetts-Amherst for her undergraduate work, earning a Bachelor’s in Animal Science and graduating cum laude in 2005. She earned her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Tufts University Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine, graduating in 2009. Dr. Stanley is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association and her professional interests include surgery, internal medicine, preventative care and dentistry.

After graduating from Tufts, Dr. Stanley relocated to the Monadnock region of New Hampshire for her first associate position. She quickly fell in love with the area and made it her home.

“Every day as a veterinarian is different,” says Dr. Stanley. “Every day presents new challenges and rewards. It’s never boring and you’re always learning.”

When she’s not working, Dr. Stanley enjoys spending time with her husband, Matt and her new baby boy Kennan, as well as their furry family members: Cherry, a golden retriever/Labrador; Hannah, a greyhound; and Bouncy, Beans and Boots, cats. Her hobbies include camping, hiking, skiing, painting and gardening.
