Carl L. Pew, DVM, MRCVS
Dr. Pew received two Bachelor of Science degrees from Virgina Tech: one in zoology and one in chemistry. He took a break before going to veterinary school and moved to Michigan to work for Upjohn Pharmaceuticals. He attended Michigan State University's College of Veterinary Medicine, graduating magna cum laude with his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree ('77). Afterwards he worked in the metropolitan Detroit area before moving to Utah in 1981 and purchasing a veterinary clinic in Orem.
Dr. Pew has been breeding and exhibiting Doberman Pinschers and Bull Terriers since 1968. He served as an officer in many kennel clubs and is a licensed AKC judge of several breeds. This hobby led him to develop the practice into a widely recognized canine reproduction center. He is a principle in the international canine frozen semen firm of 'Sires on Ice' based in New South Wales, Australia. Dr. Pew and his wife Suzanne have a daughter, Audrey, and son, James, who both come to the office frequently. They reside in Draper and have two pets, a cat named Leo and a miniature bull terrier named Diver.
Heather Gavin, DVM
Dr. Gavin was raised in Utah and Southern Idaho, returning to Utah after Vet school to be closer to family. She attended Utah State University, majoring in Biovet Science with a Biotech emphasis in 2006 and received her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Washington State University in Pullman, WA in 2010. She focuses on canine reproductive medicine and neonatal care. Career goals include continuing to grow in canine reproduction and introducing concepts of feline reproduction as well. Dr. Gavin has been interested in breeding for years and started breeding guinea pigs as a teenager.
Dr. Gavin has been married for several years to her husband, Gavin (and yes, she says he goes by his last name). They have seven children and twelve grandchildren, an Australian Shepherd - Danu, and a charcoal Bengal Cat - Nix. She loves spending time with family, reading, crafts, sewing, the outdoors (swimming, hiking, rock climbing, camping, fishing), and sci-fi/fantasy.
Dave Mahoney, DVM, DACT
Dr. Mahoney is a proud Louisiana native that attended Louisiana State University for both undergraduate and veterinary studies. He completed a small animal rotating Internship at Midwestern University, followed by a Theriogenology Residency at North Carolina State University. He has worked with and learned from some of the world's best reproductive veterinarians during this brief professional tenure and is now a board certified animal reproduction specialist.
Dr. Mahoney currently has one pet, Lady Wafflez, who is a Pembroke Welsh Corgi that is too selfish to share her dad with any other pets. He hopes that she will one day warm up to other animals as he really would love more furry friends.
