Dr. Jessica Berkeridge DVM

As a little girl growing up in Middletown, Delaware, Dr. Berkeridge knew she wanted to be a veterinarian and care for pets in her own hospital. The FFA program at Middletown High School was an excellent experience in learning the multiple aspects of animal care and prepared her for the Animal Science Program at the University of Delaware.

Dr. Grace Zhang VMD

Dr. Zhang graduated from University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine in 2017. She spent a lot of her spare time volunteering for spay and neuter events and being the infamous 'crazy bunny lady' by her classmates. She has been interested in exotic companion animals since her undergraduate days at University of Maryland College Park. Since graduating from PennVet, she started working at a small animal practice that also saw exotics, including ferrets, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, rats, chinchillas, and reptiles.
