Lebanon Animal Hospital Staff Profiles
Connie O. Schmidt, DVM, Practice Owner
Dr. Connie Schmidt cannot remember a time when she did not want to become a veterinarian. After 30 years in the field, she still enjoys her work, and tells aspiring students, “It is a great career, because I have never been bored.”
She was a member of the first class of Oregon State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine, graduating in 1983. She came to Lebanon for her first job, working in a mixed practice for 18 months before striking out on her own as a solo practitioner.
She started Lebanon Animal Hospital, P.C. working out of her home, and then moved into her current location in town. Through the years, the practice has grown and evolved, now employing roughly 20 people.
Dr. Schmidt likes working on all species, but especially enjoys cats and horses. She has a special interest in equine reproduction. She loves having state of the art equipment, and has always prided herself in providing cutting edge medicine in a semi-rural setting.
Dr. Schmidt has an active ranch just outside of Lebanon, and raises registered Shorthorn cattle, Dorset sheep, Quarter Horses, Paints, Arabians, and Saddlebred Horses. She enjoys riding, driving, and showing her horses with her husband Ken Walling. She also loves gardening and growing plants of all kinds. Her sons Loren and Christian can be found working at the hospital part time while going to college and high school respectively. The family pets include four Border Collies, a Dachshund, a Chihuahua, and approximately 10 cats, and four hens.
Sarah Vielbig DVMDr. Sarah Vielbig grew up in Oregon City, OR. After a tour of duty in the Navy, she attended Oregon State University and Oregon State College of Veterinary Medicine. After graduating in 2001 she worked at Linn Veterinary Hospital in Albany, OR until early June 2004 and joined our team late June 2004.
Sarah is a general practitioner of canines, felines, rabbits, ferrets, small ruminants, bovines, and equines but her favorite species is felines. Special interests include dentistry, ultrasound, and surgery. Sarah lives with her 3 children and her husband Joe in Lebanon, OR.
Heather Peters DVM
Dr. Heather Peters grew up on a small family farm in the Corvallis area. She then moved to The Dalles during her high school years and lived and helped out on her grandparent’s farm with her family. During all of her school years she was very active in 4-H, FFA, and sports. She attended undergraduate schooling at Eastern Oregon University in LaGrande where she received a bachelor degree in Biology. Heather then attended veterinary school at Oregon State University, where she graduated in 2009. Dr. Peters started working at the Lebanon Animal Hospital following graduation.
Dr. Peters and her husband Donald with their newly added family member, Addison have a small farm where they raise Angus and Angus-cross cattle. They sell some of their calves to local 4-H and FFA members which keep them connected to these programs. They also raise breeding stock for both commercial and purebred operations.
Heather enjoys spending time with her family, attending cattle shows, sewing, scrapbooking, and just being outdoors.
Dr. Peters has a special interest in working with ruminants both small and large as well as camelids. She also enjoys working with dogs and cats and their owners.
