Our Team

All Creatures Great and Small, Inc. was founded by Dr. Stephanie Klein in the spring of 2021. Through our comprehensive mobile veterinary service, Dr. Klein and her team are excited to serve the Santa Ynez Valley with a personalized approach to veterinary care for all animals, great and small.

Dr. Stephanie Klein

Dr. Stephanie Klein, DVM

Dr. Stephanie Klein was born in Santa Maria, California; and obtained her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine at Western University of Health Sciences in Pomona, CA. As an animal lover and enthusiast herself, Dr. Klein lives in Santa Ynez with her partner Mathew Spencer and her 4 orange tabbies Henry, Harrison, Hobbes, and Hamilton.

 

Dr. Klein graduated as a mixed animal veterinarian, and prior to starting All Creatures Great and Small, Inc. had been practicing medicine in the Santa Ynez Valley for 4 years where she was Medical Director of a mobile veterinary practice. Through this role, Dr. Klein gained experience with a wide range of animals, both great and small; which helped build the foundation she continues to expand upon today through ACGS.

 

With 27 years of pre-clinical and clinical experience in the field of veterinary medicine she is excited to continue to offer her expertise to the Valley.

Crystal, Veterinary Technician

Crystal Vet Tech

Crystal was born and raised in the Emerald City - Seattle, Washington. After cultivating a love for animals by watching Jack Hannah on Saturday mornings, she entered animal care to become Operations Manager at the Teton Valley Community Animal Shelter in south-eastern Idaho where she spent five rewarding years before relocating to the Santa Ynez Valley and joining All Creatures Great and Small in October, 2023.

 

During her time at the animal shelter, Crystal became intimately familiar with the diverse animals in her care and their unique medical and other care needs. With no homes to go to and no families to care for them, Crystal found herself acting as both nurse and caregiver, loving each and every shelter animal as her own - even adopting a few so they could have a forever home.

 

Crystal’s animal companions include Sydney, a 16 year old cattle dog who came from the back of a pick up truck in Idaho; Omar, an eight year old kitty who had been abandoned as a youngster and wouldn’t let anyone touch him for the first few months (but now sleeps on Crystal every chance he gets); and the amazing, once-in-a-lifetime dog Birdie, a 10 year old beagle-chihuahua mix (lovingly called a chi-weagle).

Desiree Vet Tech

Desiree, Veterinary Technician

Clients who have been with Dr. Klein since first introducing All Creatures Great and Small in 2021 will be no stranger to Desiree, our beloved part time veterinary technician. Desiree has worked side by side with Dr. Klein for 7 years, serving the animals and people of the Santa Ynez Valley.

 

We are grateful that she continues to support our patients as she prepares to shift into her primary field of interest: environmental studies.

HAPPY CLIENTS

“ Dr Stephanie Klein is one in a million. She goes the extra mile. It’s clear that she cares very much so for both her patients and their owners. An example is when I started to have to give my dogs Adequan shots; Dr Klein took the time to show me how. She then made herself available via FaceTime when I panicked upon the next shot. She really does care. Her follow-ups are clear and thorough. A wealth of knowledge, just a phone call away; she always try’s to be available for her patients. I’m very thankful we found her. “
