Help us welcome our new addition to the Chester Veterinary Clinic family - Dr. Ellie Walhberg!

She joins us after spending several years working with large animals and is looking forward to continue her career in a small animal practice.

Dr. Walhberg was raised in Rhode Island. She earned an undergraduate degree from University of New Hampshire and went on to work for the Royal Veterinary College in London for two years after. Dr. Walhberg then completed an internship with Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital and another with the University of Missouri.

After working with New York Racing Association she decided to move closer to home and accepted a position with a large animal practice. Dr. Walhberg could not be more excited to be joining our team here at Chester Veterinary Clinic. Make sure to say hi next time you stop in!
