Dr. Bill Scherrer is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin where he majored in psychology and minored in kinesiology. He received his DVM from UC Davis (2003). Dr. Scherrer then completed an internship at Texas A&M University, before returning to Davis for a residency in surgery. He became a board-certified surgeon in 2009. Dr. Scherrer particularly enjoys the challenges of surgical oncology, trauma care, and chronic wound management.
When not practicing, Bill enjoys daily exercise, obstacle/mud races (Spartan Race, Tough Mudder, etc.) and adventures with his wife and young daughter. He also enjoys volunteering at school events, which can also be an adventure! He is the proud owner of a golden retriever named Sugar and three cats: Clover, Jazzy and Candy. Dr. Scherrer was drawn to veterinary medicine by one of his first dogs, Sampson, and the poor manner in which the treatment options and prognosis for Sampson’s severe hip dysplasia were communicated to him. He vowed that he would try to do better, and withdrew from optometry school to pursue his DVM.
