School: Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine
Dr. Arthur Scherr is a Miami native who graduated from the Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine in 1990. His family is best know as the founders of Parrot Jungle, now Jungle Island. Except for his time spent attaining his veterinary degree, the rest of his life has been spent within a 10 mile radius of his veterinary practice. Thus, he can certainly be called "home grown," and he knows the population of south Florida as well as anyone. What sets Dr. Scherr apart is his intense interest in advanced levels of veterinary medicine and surgery. His ability to handle even the most challenging of cases is nothing short of exceptional. The father of six children, Dr. Scherr is especially sensitive to the relationship between families and their pets.
I have always had a love for animals. I have owned all types of animals and have had a passion since I was a little girl to take care of and rehabilitate any that needed it. I have had ferrets, a variety of birds, turtles, fish, dogs and cats. We here at VCA South Dade are truly a family and we treat all our clients and their pets as family. I have worked at VCA for 15 + years and I have loved everyday of it. I have been involved with Great Dane Rescue for over 7 years. I have trained my Great Danes and Chinese Cresteds in agility and obedience. I have also shown my 2 Chinese Cresteds in conformation. I love being part of this great team and enjoy coming to work everyday and being able to interact with other pet lovers as myself.
