About

Doctor Wheeler is a residency trained emergency & critical care veterinarian and always knew he wanted to practice veterinary medicine. He graduated from Chico State University in Chico, CA, earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Animal Science. He attended Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine in Saint Kitts to earn his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree.

Dr. Wheeler completed his clinical rotations at University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, MN and was the first non-University of Minnesota student to receive the emergency and critical-care award. He pursued further training by completing a small animal emergency and surgery internship at Angell Animal Medicine Center in Boston, MA. He completed his residency in emergency and critical care at Four Seasons Animal Hospital in the East Bay.

Dr. Wheeler’s medical interests include fluid, and electrolyte therapy, acid base analysis, the treatment of severe sepsis and septic shock, the treatment of traumatic injuries and point of care ultrasound (POCUS) . He has co-authored a chapter in the book “Monitoring and Intervention for the Critically Ill Small Animal: The Rule of 20” and enjoys lecturing and teaching. Dr. Wheeler’s favorite part of practicing veterinary medicine is taking care of critically ill and injured animals in their time of need and supporting their owners through that difficult time.

When not caring for patients, Dr. Wheeler likes to be active and outdoors. He enjoys CrossFit, fly fishing, and obstacle course racing.
