Meet Our Veterinarians!


Dr. Chris Shivers

Co-Owner and Practicing Veterinarian
Member of the At Home Animal Clinic Staff since June 2, 2008

Dr. Chris Shivers, a Stillwater area native, graduated from Stillwater Area High School in 2000. She moved back to Washington County after completing degrees at St. Olaf College in 2004, and Iowa State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine in 2008.

Dr. Shivers joined the At Home Animal Clinic staff shortly after graduation, and has enjoyed building long-term relationships with her clients and their pets. In January 2016, Dr. Shivers and Dr. Phillips jointly purchased At Home Animal Clinic from Dr. Art Rutscher.

Dr. Shivers lives with her husband, son, and two cats. In her spare time, she enjoys playing in the handbell choir and singing in the chancel choir at church, spending time outside, playing with her son, reading, and sewing. It is her love of sewing that has led her to an interest in soft tissue surgery.

Dr. Ashley Ng

Associate Veterinarian
Member of the At Home Animal Clinic Staff since January 2, 2014

Dr. Ashley Ng (pronounced “ing”) is originally from a small city in Vermont, where she grew up around animals and was an active member of 4-H. She wanted to become a veterinarian since she was 7 years old! She attended the University of Vermont for her undergraduate studies, then the University of Minnesota to obtain her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree in 2008.

Dr. Ng enjoys spending time with her friends and family, horseback riding, camping, and watching movies. She shares her home with her husband, son, daughter, and a cat. An interesting fact about Dr. Ng is that she shares her birthday with Harry Potter.

Dr. Kate Pederson

Associate Veterinarian
Member of the At Home Animal Clinic Staff since August 13, 2018

Dr. Kate Pederson completed her undergraduate degree at the University of Wisconsin - River Falls. She graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Animal Science with an Equine emphasis. Despite the equine emphasis, horses have always been a hobby and small animals (cats and dogs) her passion. Dr. Pederson then proceeded on to veterinary school at the University of Minnesota, completing her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2014.

After previously practicing in La Crosse, WI, Dr. Pederson is excited to be part of another wonderful river town here in Stillwater at At Home Animal Clinic. She really enjoys being a general practice veterinarian and being available to help clients and patients from puppyhood to old age. The chance to develop lasting relationships and supporting the human animal bond is invaluable. Her professional interests include preventative care, behavior, internal medicine cases, and dermatology.

Dr. Pederson grew up in Rochester, MN and still has family there. She currently lives with her dog, Glia. Together they enjoy hiking and exploring the outdoors. Recently they have started backpacking in the many wonderful national and state forests and parks. Dr. Pederson also is passionate about animal rescue work and frequently fosters kittens and cats.

Dr. Amy Phillips

Co-Owner, Office Manager, and Relief Veterinarian
Member of the At Home Animal Clinic Staff since January 1, 2016

Dr. Amy Phillips graduated from Stillwater Area High School in 2000. After completing her pre-vet coursework at St. Olaf College, she graduated from the University of Minnesota’s College of Veterinary Medicine in 2006. Dr. Phillips first joined the At Home Animal Clinic staff in 2006, leaving in 2008, when she purchased Lake Animal Hospital in White Bear Lake, which she also continues to own and manage. She is happy to be back with At Home Animal Clinic in this new capacity!

Dr. Phillips always had a love of animals. She grew up on a historic farmstead in Stillwater where she resides today. There, she raises Baby Doll Sheep and Appaloosa Sport Horses. Dr. Phillips shares her home with many pets including an adoring Welsh Corgi named Lollie, a demanding orange tabby called Brosnan, and an ill-tempered African Bullfrog known fondly as Vicious.
