Steven Valeika, DVM


Dr. Valeika brings some serious nerd energy to All Pets. His love of science, hiking, and especially mushroom hunting have filled his brain with all sorts of fun facts. Before starting to practice veterinary medicine in 2012, Dr. Valeika was an epidemiology professor where he studied infectious disease transmission. He continues to be active in Public Health, sitting on the board for the Buncombe County Department of Health and Human Services. When he’s not practicing veterinary medicine or thinking about infectious disease, Dr. Valeika loves hiking in the mountains, spending time with his wife and two daughters, and memorizing rap lyrics. He has a cattle dog mix named Penny, and a fierce cat named Boocat.
