WAYNE J. HASSINGER II, VMD
Dr. Hassinger's interest in farm animals began on his grandfather's dairy farm when he was young. From his first 4-H show calf, Wayne went on to raise a diversity of animals as an FFA member. His interest in animals, people, and applied science started a path toward veterinary medicine.
Wayne earned his B.S. in Dairy Science from Delaware Valley College and graduated from the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine in 1999. He remained interested in all aspects of dairy herd medicine while enjoying the variety of attending to a mix of animal species. After five years in mixed practice, he focused on large animals with Hassinger Veterinary Services.
