Paul Robertson, Owner & Veterinarian

Dr. Paul Robertson believes he was born to be a veterinarian.

"I knew that's what I wanted to do for as long as I can remember," he says. Growing up in Oklahoma City, Dr. Robertson enrolled at Oklahoma State University as a Physiology major and Chemistry minor. After earning his undergraduate degree in 1982, he spent the next four years working toward his doctorate in veterinary medicine. He was a member of Phi Zeta and Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society and he received a scholarship for his leadership, scholarship and clinical proficiency.

Before becoming a veterinarian, Dr. Robertson volunteered on a dairy farm and with his veterinarian uncle. He worked for more than ten years as an associate veterinarian before opening Cobblestone Veterinary Hospital with his wife Christine in Spring 1997. Dr. Robertson is a member of the American Association of Feline Practitioners and Missouri Veterinary Medical Association. His professional veterinary interests include feline medicine and preventative care. The most satisfying part of being a veterinarian, he says, is watching sick or injured animals recover and then being a part of their lives.

Dr. Robertson and his wife share their home with three dogs (Cooper – pictured, Toby and Blue) and three cats (Ming Ming, Squatter and Night). Together, the couple has two daughters. In his free time, Dr. Robertson enjoys hiking, boating, snorkeling, and traveling.

Reginald McIntyre, Veterinarian

Dr. Reginald McIntyre joined the Cobblestone Veterinary Hospital team in August 2015.

A Missouri native, Dr. McIntyre graduated as Senior Class President from Oklahoma State University in 2000. He was awarded the Dr. Newton B. Tennille Scholarship and the American Animal Hospital Association's Senior Student Award for outstanding clinical proficiency in small animal medicine and surgery. As an undergraduate, Dr. McIntyre was a member of the Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society and the National Dean's List.

"When I was eight our puppy got sick with Parvo and there wasn't much that could be done for it," he says. "I lost that puppy and from then on I wanted to try to save anyone else from feeling the sadness I felt."

Growing up on a farm, Dr. McIntyre was raised with cattle, sheep, rabbits, chickens, dogs, and cats. His experience with a range of different animals continued when he worked in three different veterinary clinics as an undergraduate: one was for cats only, another for mixed animals, and the third specialized in ostriches and emus.

After graduation, Dr. McIntyre spent eight years working in emergency veterinary hospitals, becoming well-versed in critical care, emergency medicine, and trauma. The other seven years were spent in general practice. He is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association and the Veterinary Emergency & Critical Care Society. His favorite part of being a veterinarian is sharing his knowledge of veterinary medicine with clients in terms they understand to help ease their minds.

At home, Dr. McIntyre shares his love of animals with his two young daughters. The family has an adopted cat named Twinkle Rose, a cockatiel named Prince Charming, and "a tank full of brightly colored fish." Dr. McIntyre is also Deacon at North Nixa Baptist Church, where he and his wife Shelly teach Sunday School to high school students. In his free time, he says he's "an avid outdoorsman."

"There is nothing more relaxing than just sitting in the woods and marveling at the Lord’s creation," he says.
