Dr. Steven R. Findlay, DVM
By the age of eight, Dr. Steve knew that he would be a veterinarian. Growing up with a handful of pets in North Huntingdon, his passion for animals of all shapes and sizes grew as he spent summers on his grandparents’ farm. Dr. Steve received his pre-veterinary Bachelor of Science Degree from Penn State University, and in 1988 received his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Iowa State. Returning to his home town to practice veterinary medicine was a natural decision. At first, his practice included equine and large animals. Now Dr. Steve practices exclusively small animal medicine and surgery. In his free time, Dr. Steve enjoys spending time with his family, which include their two golden retrievers, Molly and Murphy, and three cats, Chip, Dale and Dash.
”Helping pets and owners live happier and healthier lives together is one of the most rewarding aspects of veterinary medicine.”

Dr. Brandon P. Reines, DVM
Dr. Reines grew up in Boston, Massachusetts and was allergic to cats and dogs. After two years of shots, he took his love of animals to the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, where he majored in zoology as a preveterinary student. He attended Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine. After practicing for several years, he won a postdoctoral fellowship in immunology at the U.S. National Institutes of Health. In 2009, he was trained for a full year in stem cell biology at the University of Pittsburgh, McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine. His main interest is in understanding how pets’ diseases change with the season and the environment inside and outside the home. He has new ideas on how best to treat arthritis, allergies, feline urinary problems, and unusual “hard-to-figure-out” cases. He also enjoys seeing guinea pigs, rabbits, reptiles, and exotic pets.
An adjunct professor of bioinformatics at the University of Pittsburgh Medical School, Dr. Reines uses evidence-based medicine to ensure that your pet receives the most appropriate care. Dr. Reines is a published science writer and advisor to a well-known Vietnam veterans support organization.
“I’m proud to be part of St. Francis’ legacy of compassion to both people and animals,” Dr. Reines says. “Sometimes when you help heal one, you help heal the other.”
