Our Veterinarians

Dr. Margaret Dougherty

Dr. Margaret Dougherty

I graduated from the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine in 1990. I practiced 2 years near Charlotte, NC and 2½ years in Glenview, IL before coming to the Animal Hospital of Streamwood in 1995. I have always loved animals and been interested in the relationships people have with their pets. I enjoy surgery, medicine and developing long-term relationships with pets and their people; I find it very rewarding to be part of this bond.

My husband, son and I live in Schaumburg with Tank, a black lab mix, Rex, a corgi mix, and our 2 sassy cats, Ellie & Sophie.

Dr. Sheila Newenham

Dr. Sheila Newenham

I graduated from the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine in 1995 and have enjoyed practicing at the Animal Hospital of Streamwood ever since. I became an owner of the hospital in 2001. I have wanted to care for people’s pets for as long as I can remember. Helping people to better understand their pets, thereby enriching their relationships, is one of the most rewarding aspects of my job. I enjoy counseling pet owners about preventative care and behavior/lifestyle issues. Getting to know the unique personality of a cat or kitten, who doesn’t often wear their heart on their sleeve like dogs do, always makes my day.

I share a home with my husband, our cats, Homer and Seward; Hobbes, a release dog from Canine Companions for Independence; our rabbit, Ally; and many tropical fish. I volunteer rehabilitating wildlife at a local nature center, spend a lot of time in the garden, love to travel and take pleasure in nature photography.

Dr. Elizabeth Hetler

Dr. Elizabeth Hetler

I graduated from the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine in 2001. I’d wanted to be a veterinarian from an early age and never looked back. I joined the Animal Hospital of Streamwood team in 2001 and became an owner of the practice in 2010. I enjoy all aspects of veterinary practice but particularly like performing ultrasounds of the abdomen, working on complicated medical cases and managing pets with cancer.

I have a special fondness for labrador retrievers and orange and white cats. I live with my husband and son, our black labrador Gus, and our cats Henry, Wally and Schmoo.
