  • Dr. Dave Sherer
    Dr. Dave Sherer VMD

    Dr. Dave Sherer has always had a close bond with animals. He was especially close with his family’s dog Buster when he was growing up. Dr. Sherer’s dad- the original Dr. Sherer was a physician (a cardiologist) by trade. As he moved through his schooling- he knew the best way to combine these two loves was to become a veterinarian.
