Dr. John Wehe

Practice Owner/Veterinarian

Dr. Wehe is a Greensboro native and a 2007 graduate of NC State University College of Veterinary Medicine. After graduation, Dr. Wehe returned to Greensboro, with his family, to practice veterinary medicine. Over that time, he has developed an interest in small animal medicine, dentistry, soft tissue surgery and diagnostic ultrasound. He has also continued to develop his ability to provide veterinary care for exotic small animals such as ferrets, rabbits, guinea pigs and birds. Following a desire to have an animal hospital in the downtown area, Dr. Wehe opened Downtown Greensboro Animal Hospital in the spring of 2013.

Dr. Wehe shares his life with his amazing wife and their 4 lovely children and their sweet pups Boaz and Cricket. Together they enjoy their church, swimming and gardening.
