Learn Who We Are

  • Dr. Brandy Doggett
    Veterinarian /Owner

    Dr. Doggett has been the owner of Striegel Animal Hospital since October of 2014. Her journey to Carbondale has been a long one. She was brought up in a Navy family and knew that military service was in her future from a very young age. She joined the Navy after graduating from high school, and soon began her first career as an Aviation Electronics technician. After 9 years she knew it was time to pursue her other dream, Veterinary Medicine. After being honorably discharged from the Navy she moved to Knoxville Tennessee to help her family, and begin her long and rewarding journey into Veterinary Medicine. For Dr. Doggett, this was just another way she could live a life of service, while at the same time living her dream.

Dr. Emi dreamed about being a veterinarian from the time she was 4 and got her first puppy, a Chow-German Shepherd mix named Ntasha. (She did try to name the dog Peter.) She loves the application of science and the treasure of the human-animal bond, which makes being a veterinarian the perfect calling. Dr. Hayashi is a graduate of the College of Veterinary Medicine at Cornell University (Class of 2005). She has completed a small animal medicine/surgery internship at the California Animal Hospital in Los Angeles, and a neurology/neurosurgery internship at the Center for Veterinary Specialty Care in Carrollton, Texas.

Dr. Emi lives with her amazing husband and best friend Logan, an associate professor at SIU.

Her amazing extended family lives in Richmond, Virginia; New York City; and Cincinnati, Ohio. She is blessed to be able to work a few hours a week at Striegel Animal Hospital. The clinic cats help lower her blood pressure and she loves the Fear Free and AAHA certifications that are a first and only in Southern Illinois. She is honored to work with the technicians, receptionists, and staff that make it a fun and relaxing place to work. Her personal interests are varied but include yoga, kitty snuggles, curling up with a good book, Dr. Who, the works of Joss Whedon, and eating delicious foods.

Feedback from our clients

  • "Striegel Animal Hospital has always provided my wife and I with compassionate and quality care for all of our animals. Their staff has carried out a number of procedures on our animals, from a cyst removal on our older beagle to an eye lid tuck on our shar-pei puppy, all of which have been extremely successful. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a vet in this area."
