Allison Haydt, DVM

Doctor Haydt came to us from Encanto Pet Clinic in Tucson, AZ in 2012. She has a special, gentle way with all animals and they love her! She is rewarded when she can help improve the pet’s quality of life and in turn it helps the entire family. Her knowledge in the use of acupuncture provides many of her patients a higher quality of life.


Shawna Sawtelle, DVM

Dr. Sawtelle received her D.V.M in 2009. After graduation, she headed east to Pennsylvania to work at a mixed animal practice for 2 years. Dr. Sawtelle decided to head back to the West to be closer to family and enjoy the milder weather. Her favorite activity is riding her horse Pearl and recently began competing in Barrel Racing with her.


Paula Tyler, DVM

Dr. Paula Tyler graduated from CSU in 1996. After graduation she moved to Benson, Arizona where she owned and operated Benson Animal Hospital for 15 years. After a very short retirement from practice ownership she joined the Coronado team. She is a firm believer in preventative medicine and a gentle approach to animals. When she isn't working, she runs a non-profit called The Dallas Memorial Hope Fund which seeks to improve the lives of seniors and their pets in our community (for more information visit http://www.dallasmemorialhopefund.webs.com). In her down time Dr. Tyler enjoys hiking, kayaking, yoga, gardening, and hanging out with her five dogs, two birds, three turtles, and one cat.


Dr. Snyder

I am excited to be a part of the Coronado Veterinary Hospital team! Cochise county is where I grew up. Providing the mild weather I prefer for horseback riding, hiking, and lounging with friends; it feels like home.

I take a partnership approach to medicine and enjoy teaching my clients and staff. Working in clinics in Bisbee, Wilcox and the White Mountains, has provided a variety of experience and opportunities for my professional growth, that I look forward to building on through my career.
