The “Wes” behind WesVet, Dr. Wesley Schoonover is a native of West Virginia, where he grew up and completed his undergraduate training at West Virginia University. After graduating from the University of Georgia’s College of Veterinary Medicine, Dr. Wes worked as a critical care veterinarian at the Animal Neurology, Emergency, and Rehabilitation Referral Center in Commerce, Michigan. To become a well-rounded veterinarian, he also worked at a cat-only clinic, an animal shelter, and other small animal clinics in Michigan during this time.
In 2018, Dr. Wes moved to Music City with his family, working as an associate veterinarian at a local small animal practice while he prepared to put down roots and fulfill his dream of opening his own clinic.
Dr. Wes and his wife, Ciera, have two children—a son named Rowan and a daughter named Nora. The four-legged babies of the family include Jasper the cat and Denver the dog. When Dr. Wes isn’t working, he and his family enjoy playing golf together, watching sports, traveling, and supporting the West Virginia Mountaineers (and the Titans!).
Dr. Wes has a passion for emergency medicine, neurology, and internal medicine cases. He is thrilled to start building relationships with pets and their families here in the Brentwood community by offering high-quality veterinary care for years to come.
