Greg Starr, Staff Veterinarian

DVM, MS

Dr. Greg Starr has cared for pets at VCA Cherokee Animal Hospital since 1999. A native of Missouri, Dr. Starr was raised on a farm and it was there that he developed a deep love for animals and decided to become a veterinarian. He showed horses for more than 15 years (Arabian and Ponies-of-America) and he currently manages the breeding and maintenance of herds of Simmental and Belted Galloway cattle.

Dr. Starr completed his Bachelor of Science in Animal Science at Missouri State in 1990 while on an athletic scholarship for cross-country and track. He then attended Clemson University, where he earned his Master of Science in Genetics in 1993.  He finished his education at the University of Missouri/Columbia in 1999 with his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine.

Dr. Starr is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, the American Animal Hospital Association, the Kansas Veterinary Medical Association, the Belted Galloway Association, the American Simmental Association and the Fleckvieh Federation.

When he's not busy with his duties at the hospital, Dr. Starr can be found overseeing the breeding and maintenance of his purebred Simmental and purebred Belted Galloway cattle. Running, lifting weights, traveling and keeping up with college sports are among his many hobbies. He shares his home with two Welsh Corgis, Rose Marie and Winnie Wu, who also help herd the cattle.
