American Animal Hospital Association Accredited

Veterinary Doctors

Dr. John C. Widenmeyer, V.M.D.

I am the founder and owner of Flowers Mill Veterinary Hospital. I was raised in Bucks County, where I attended and graduated from the George School. My dad was also a vet, so I've been around animals my entire life. I have always been fascinated by science and veterinary medicine.

After earning my BS from Florida Southern College in Lakeland, Florida, I went on to the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine. Upon graduation, I founded Flowers Mill Veterinary Hospital in 1977.

For many years, I was the principal veterinarian and pet surgeon, as well as the one who ran the business side of things. Over the years, other skilled veterinarians have joined the team as my associates. I remain active in running my practice and stay abreast of new developments in veterinary medicine. I am a member of several veterinary organizations including AAHA, AVMA, PVMA, and AFP.

I have been married to my wife, Debbie, for more than 20 years, and we have three great children, Connor, Brad, and Katie. I am a “family man,” focused on raising my children and spending time with my wife. Our family includes two dogs (an Australian shepherd and a golden) and two rescue cats. I also devote time to animal welfare and charitable causes, including acting as a financial advisor to my church.

Dr. Stephanie Snyder, V.M.D.

I grew up in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I attended Holy Family College in Northeast Philadelphia before starting my veterinary education at the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine. During my time at Penn, I worked as a veterinary nurse in the Veterinary Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (now the Matthew J. Ryan Veterinary Hospital).

After graduating in 2000, I worked in Allentown in a “cats-only” practice. There I developed my special love and interest for our feline friends. In 2004, I joined Flowers Mill Veterinary Hospital and now get to enjoy working with dogs as well as cats.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family as well as watching the Phillies, reading, and baking. I live in New Britain with my husband, Michael; three boys; and my Sheltie, Penelope. Penelope frequently comes to work with me, so you may see her hanging out with our receptionists behind the front desk.

Dr. Alex Ehrenman, V.M.D.

I grew up in Long Island, New York and attended Bucknell University where I received my Bachelor’s of Science degree in Biology. I never wavered from my dream of becoming a veterinarian, and upon graduation, I immediately started veterinary school at the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine.

While at PennVet, I had the opportunity to travel to Thailand with fellow veterinary students on a spay and neuter trip, where we operated on both owned and shelter animals. I also spent a summer working as a rehabilitation therapy assistant at the Matthew J. Ryan Veterinary Hospital.

I fell in love with Philadelphia and currently live in center city with my orange Siberian cat, Carrot. In my spare time, I enjoy trying out new restaurants and drinking coffee with a good book. I joined the Flowers Mill team in June 2018 after receiving my VMD degree and they have welcomed me with open arms. In the next few months, I plan on adopting a dog and expanding my furry family!

Staff

Sue Hennigan
Hospital Administrator

I am the hospital administrator for Flowers Mill Veterinary Hospital. I started as a receptionist in 1983; I was shortly promoted and have served as part of the management team for over 30 years. I earned an associate degree from Bucks and a bachelor's degree in criminology and psychology from Trenton State College. I worked in law enforcement before coming to Flowers Mill.

My job is the best because I get to do a little bit of everything! At any given time you can find me being a receptionist, a nurse, or a kennel worker. Sometimes I even get to sit at my own desk, where I oversee personnel, banking, and purchasing, as well as our computer system and the Internet. This is a position that is constantly changing, and I attend yearly hospital management seminars to keep up with the changes.

I have been married for more than 30 years and I have an adult son who is an electrician. I have two dogs (a schnauzer and a French bulldog), and an African Grey parrot. In my spare time (of which there isn't much), I like to crochet, bowl, and spend time in the mountains.

Nicole
Assistant Manager

I joined Flowers Mill Veterinary Hospital in 2000 as a receptionist and was promoted a couple years ago to assistant manager. I received my associate degree from Bucks County Community College in 2003 and went on to attend West Chester University.

I like my job since I get to interact with patients, as well as form bonds with clients. Recently I started doing a lot of work with our online store, which is rewarding since I help to provide clients the convenience of getting medications delivered directly to their homes. I have learned so much already and really look forward to many years to come at Flowers Mill!

In my spare time, I enjoy vacationing to fun places, reading, and spending time with my friends and family, including my dogs, Delilah (a Cavalier King Charles) and Bailey (a German shepherd mix), and my cats, Clementine and Kobe—both adopted from Flowers Mill.

Trisha
Head Certified Veterinary Technician

I am the Head Certified Veterinary Techinician at Flowers Mill. I started in 2001 as a Manor Student and my externship here was such a great experience that I decide to stay and become part of the Flowers Mill family. 

I live with my husband Ron, two cats Chenzy and Charlie (Flowers Mill adoptees), and my two daughters.

I love being part of this great hospital of loving people that put pets before themselves. This is my second home!

Judi
Bookkeeper

I am the bookkeeper at Flowers Mill Veterinary Hospital. I have enjoyed my 28 years with Flowers Mill, starting my career as a front desk receptionist working part-time, eventually moving to the back office support for the hospital. Interacting with staff, vendors and all our great clients has been rewarding and provides for an ever-changing environment that keeps me on my toes.

As a graduate of Shippensburg University, where I earned a B.A. in social work, I have continued my professional career in accounting at Rider University. I am an active member of our church bell choir. I enjoy travelling both domestically and abroad and spending time with my “entire” family, consisting of Ray, my husband of 43 years; our boys, Ryan and Josh; their beautiful wives, Erin and Jenny; our wonderful grandson Atticus; our cats, Jordan and Löwen; and our sibling English Cream Golden Retrievers, Thule and Stoli.

Brad Widenmeyer
Administrative Assistant

I have been working for Flowers Mill Veterinary Hospital since I was 12 years old. I remember my excitement when I first started working here and that passion has not diminished, since I joined the company as the Administrative Assistant.

Prior to joining the Flowers Mill team full-time, I attended Quinnipiac University in Hamden, CT, graduating with my BS in Marketing in 2016 and my MBA in 2017. 

As Dr. Widenmeyer’s son, I have had the pleasure of watching Flowers Mill grow over the years. I am thrilled to be a part of this hardworking team that has thrived on providing the best possible care for both our clients and their pets.

Out of the office, I love to play ice hockey, golf (a love-hate relationship), run Tough Mudders and Spartan Races, and I am an avid movie-watcher. My goal is to continue Flowers Mill’s tradition of great service and I look forward to meeting you and your pets!

"Zoe was always happy to come to Flowers Mill no matter how much poking and prodding took place. She was the world’s happiest dog‚ and brought so much joy to everyone she crossed paths with. Thank you to you and all of your staff for being so kind to us on Saturday."
