Dr. Sean Bretschneider and Dr. Keri Swanson (married couple), both received bachelor degrees from Oregon State University and graduated from the OSU College of Veterinary Medicine in 1996 and 1999 respectively. They met in Veterinary School over a romantic brightly lit cat spay. Over the course of a couple of internships and various jobs they were drawn to the Springfield/Eugene area. They now have 4 wonderful children that keep them very busy with soccer, basketball, rowing, hiking, biking and all of the other activities that they do together as a famiy. ln 2005 they purchased Q Street Animal Hospital and it has grown to the busy and bustling practice that it has become. They are affectionately known as Dr. B and Dr. Keri by their clients and team members.

Dr Jess (as she is affectionately known by clients and team members) grew up in the Lebanon/Sweet Home area. She worked in a veterinary clinic while in high school and continued to work there off and on all the way through college and veterinary school. Once she graduated she continued to work at this clinic until she joined the Q Street team. She is a capable, compassionate and wonderful doctor. When she is not working, she enjoys her family and all of her animals, complete from horses to chickens. We are very fortunate to have her at this practice.
