Dr. Goulard received her veterinary degree in 1988 from Montreal University in Canada, moving to California in 2000. She has over 25 years of experience including general small animal practice as well as emergency and critical care expertise. While Dr. Goulard has been an athlete throughout her life, she has also suffered from both minor and severe sports injuries.

She then completed certification in Canine Rehabilitation Therapy (CCRT) and as a Veterinary Pain Practitioner (CVPP). When Dr. Goulard is not serving animals through her work, she is taking care of her own pets. She also enjoys cooking for her loved ones, both humans and animals. You might also spot her on a mountain bike, out for a leisure ride or a grueling race.
Dr. Stefanie Schwartz, DVM, MSc, Dip. ACVB
Veterinarian and board-certified specialist by the American College of Veterinary Behavior (ACVB), Dr. Stefanie Schwartz’s mission is to help misbehaving pets and their pet parents live happily ever after.
Veterinary behavior medicine is the parallel to human psychiatry. Many behavior problems have underlying medical conditions, but can also be psychosocial in origin. Misbehavior is the leading reason that otherwise healthy pets are euthanized, relinquished and abandoned everyday; the majority of their misbehavior is treatable.
Prior to relocating to California, Dr. Schwartz was on staff at Angell Animal Medical Center in Boston and clinical faculty at Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine. She is adjunct faculty at the University of Virginia-Maryland’s School of Veterinary Medicine. She is the award-winning author of ten books, several book chapters, and many scientific journal articles.
Dr Schwartz’ practice uses Paws On the Go’s facility.
