Dr. James Wesseldyk

Practice Owner, Veterinarian

Dr. James Wesseldyk—known affectionately by his staff and clientele as Doc—has been the sole owner of Pet Vet Family Pet Care Center since the hospital opened its doors in 1983. He’s been tending to the pets and animal parents of this area for more than three decades!

Dr. Wesseldyk is especially proud of the knowledge and professionalism of his talented staff, and he continues to remain passionate about providing the highest level of state-of-the-art care for the patients of Pet Vet Family Pet Care Center. Above all, he focuses on cultivating a family-centered atmosphere—true to the clinic’s name!—for his clients, patients, and staff members.

Away from the office, Doc is actively involved with his church where he is a Deacon and Treasurer, and he is also active with Angel Food Ministries. He enjoys photography, baseball, reading, traveling, and doting on his own pets. He shares his life with a mixed-breed dog, Roxy, and Walker, one of Pet Vet Family Pet Care Center’s clinic cats. Walker doesn’t let her three-legged stance slow her down in the least; she particularly loves climbing to obscure spots on top of the office cabinets, ready to pounce on anyone who walks by.
