Dr. Steven J. Wharrie has been a dedicated veterinarian at Middlesex County Animal Hospital since 2015 and has been working in the veterinary field for 10 years. Dr. Wharrie grew up surrounded by dogs, mainly Border Collies, as his parents owned a company that trained the dogs to chase geese in order to humanely remove them from parks and other expansive properties.
Dr. Wharrie is a graduate of Rutgers University where he received his undergraduate degree in Animal Science. He then received his Veterinary degree from Western University of Health Sciences in California. Enhancing our hospital with his professionalism and good nature, Dr. Wharrie offers a great quality of attentiveness and care to patients. Known for his thoroughness, clients praise the gentle one-on-one approach that he takes. His areas of interest include dermatology, geriatric care and chronic disease management.
Through compassion, education, and respect for the client’s wishes, Dr. Wharrie strives to keep his patients as healthy as possible and his clients as happy as possible. Some of his greatest feelings of success come from working with anxious and fear aggressive dogs, and watching them respond positively to his calm and gentle way of medicine. As time allows, Dr. Wharrie enjoys spending time outdoors participating in activities such as hiking, fishing and kayaking.
