    Dr. Swanner's interest in caring for animals was sparked at the age of 10, when he received his veterinary medicine merit badge from the Boy Scouts of America. From that moment on, he knew he wanted to become a veterinarian. Dr. Swanner followed his dream. He received a B.S. degree in poultry science from NC State University and then graduated from the university's College of Veterinary Medicine in 2006. Prior to opening Creekside Animal Clinic in 2010, Dr. Swanner was an associate veterinarian at Reidsville Veterinary Hospital in Reidsville, NC, where he provided internal medicine, emergency, critical care, dental, and surgical services.

    Dr. Swanner has a special interest in client education, internal medicine, dentistry, and soft tissue surgery. He enjoys caring for dogs, cats, and the occasional chicken!  He is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, American Veterinary Dental Society, North Carolina Veterinary Medical Association, and the American Animal Hospital Association.
