Learn Who We Are

  • Dr.
    Matt Shivelbine
    DVM / Owner

    Dr. Shivelbine (or Dr. Shiv, as he is known to be called) is a Missouri native, originally from Cape Girardeau, where he grew up in his family’s music store. Inspired by his father’s work ethic and his mother’s love of learning, he moved north to Kirksville where he attended Truman State University. He developed a real love of biology and animal science that eventually directed him to a career in veterinary medicine. He moved to St. Louis after graduating from the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine in 2002, and has been practicing throughout the metro area since then. Dr. Shivelbine is interested in soft tissue surgery, dentistry, internal medicine, and exotic animal medicine. He is a member of the American Animal Hospital Association and the American Veterinary Medical Association.

    Dr. Shivelbine truly enjoys working through animal health concerns, and wants to foster open & honest communication with our CWE families. Before you make a medical decision together, he wants you to understand not only what we need to do but why we are recommending it.

    Dr. Shivelbine regularly plays violin (well), bass (pretty good), and accordion (poorly) with his wife Jenna and their friends in the acoustic band The Aught Naughts. They also love watching / mocking low budget scary movies and laughing a lot. Jenna has an amazing imagination – she makes toys, stuffed animals, children’s books and other creations in her home studio. Matt and Jenna both enjoy building Lego sculptures with their young boys Olin and Emrik. Olin studies karate and is hard at work on his path to black belt. Emrik loves music and is absolutely crazy for steam trains. The real boss of the house is their cat, Clever Dan – a grey tabby with a remarkably high IQ.

  • Dr. Evan Klein
    DVM / Owner

    Dr. Klein has been practicing in small animal medicine and surgery for the past 10 years. He realized his dream of becoming a veterinarian while he was working to complete his degree in marine biology in Santa Cruz, CA. For three of his years in school he volunteered his time and love at an animal shelter. During this time he realized his complete love of animals and that his true passion lied in helping those who could not speak for themselves.

    After this dream was realized the real work began. Dr. Klein attended Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine in Saint Kitts. His clinical year was completed at the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine. His drive for further knowledge led him to apply for an additional internship and extend his years of study. Once accepted he was an intern with the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine Ambulatory Department and Champaign County Small Animal Shelter.

    During this past year Dr. Evan Klein has become an owner at CWE Veterinary Hospital. From wellness preventive care visits to more advanced medicine and surgery, his main focus is treating your pet as part of the family. Dr. Klein is proud to be certified in a program called Fear Free, a program designed to make visits to the hospital as stress free as possible.

    In his free time, Dr. Klein loves going mountain biking, hiking, and spending time with his wife and his two young boys.

  • Dr.
    Cheryl Walker
    DVM, CVAT / Owner

    Dr. Cheryl Walker is a 2015 graduate of the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine.   As a part of her interest in internal medicine and pain management therapies, she became certified in veterinary acupuncture in 2021. Originally from Downers Grove, a suburb of Chicago, she moved to the state of Missouri for her schooling and decided to stay, preferring the milder winters in Missouri. Her interests include feline medicine and internal medicine. Outside of work, she enjoys biking, hiking, and reading.

    We moved from our 1st Vet to CWE Vet Clinic and had our initial appointment. The experience was nothing short of excellent…starting from booking the appointment and check-in with Kelsey, consult with Christina, check-up with Dr. Clary to check-out with Austin. And today I get a follow-up text from Christina making sure they were doing well! This level of care is phenomenal and sooooo not what I had at the previous clinic. Thank you to all of you! My “babies” will thrive under your care for sure!!!
