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.
After graduating from the University of Pittsburgh with a Bachelor of Sciences, Dr. Sherer attended the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine. He moved to California following vet school to pursue an internship in small animal (dog and cat) medicine, surgery, and emergency and critical care. Since moving back to Pittsburgh, Dr. Sherer has practiced in both emergency and general practice clinics. One of the things that Dr. Sherer loves most about being a vet is the diversity of the profession. Vets have a chance to do many things through a day including doing exams, working in radiology, being a dentist, doing surgeries among other things. The chance to do all of these things and to help people take the best care of their pets is a dream come true.
Dr. Sherer, and his wife Danelle, have two boys- Ellis and Oliver. They also have 4 dogs, 4 cats, 3 chickens, and 2 frogs. In their free time you might find them outdoors, spending time with their family, listening to music or reading (or some combination of those). They enjoy the sports and cultural opportunities that Pittsburgh has to offer.
