Dr. Stacy L. Duffy
Dr. Stacy Duffy has always appreciated the unconditional love shown to her by pets over the years. Having a love of science, Dr. Duffy knew that the best way to satisfy her interests in the scientific world while helping animals to live happier, healthier lives at the same time was to become a veterinarian! She’s happy to do just that as a member of the Raintree Pet Resort + Medical Center family.
Dr. Duffy is a Scottsdale native and decided at only 10 years of age that she would one day become a veterinarian. She began working at a pet clinic in Scottsdale when she was 18, then continued on to Arizona State University to earn her biology degree. Dr. Duffy worked in a few different career fields for a number of years, then decided to refocus on her original dream: helping animals as a licensed veterinarian. She earned her second Bachelor’s degree in veterinary science at the University of Arizona, and then a Master’s in molecular biology at Arizona State University. Next, Dr. Duffy moved to North Carolina, where she started working at Duke University as a Laboratory manager, and then gained acceptance into North Carolina State University’s veterinary program to earn her Doctorate.
Dr. Duffy became a part of the Raintree Pet Resort + Medical Center team in the spring of 2019, and is thrilled to help the pets and animal owners of her hometown as an Associate Veterinarian. She’s fond of pain management work, and especially enjoys providing health and wellness care. Dr. Duffy feels a special connection with our feline friends, and loves using her instincts to crack the code when cats hide their illness or discomfort.
At home, Dr. Duffy shares her life with a number of beloved pets. She has two dogs—Chloe, a Pomeranian who is the light of Dr. Duffy’s life, as well as a Peek-a-Poo named Ayce who loves everyone he meets—and five cats named Emmett, Sheamus, Finnegan, Fionna, and Sadie. Dr. Duffy also has four mice, each retired from the laboratory environment and named after inspirational professors from Dr. Duffy’s schooling: Dr. Lunn, Dr. Bizikova, Dr. Hardie, and Dr. Balko.
