Meet Bellingham Veterinarian Dr. Sharninghausen
Dr. Frederick "Fritz" Sharninghausen VMD is our primary veterinarian. He studied chemistry and literature at Yale before completing his veterinary degree at the University of Pennsylvania in 1977.
Dr. S. was drawn to veterinary medicine by his experiences on a communal farm in Israel. He worked for a year as a large animal vet among the Amish in central Pennsylvania before joining a seven doctor small animal practice outside Philadelphia for seven years.
Upon moving to Bellingham in 1986, Dr. S. recognized the value of a "mobile" practice and together with wife Janet, began serving the greater Bellingham community. He specializes in personal, compassionate care comparable to a family physician.
Janet, Liam & Jody
Dr. S. is assisted by his wife Janet. Through the years, their now grown children, Liam & Jody helped in the practice.
