Dr. Vanessa Von Hendy-Willson (Dr. V.) received her DVM from Purdue University in 2005. After two years in private practice, she decided to specialize and went to The Ohio State University for a rotating internship and then Purdue University for her residency.
In 2011, she became Board Certified in Small Animal Internal Medicine. She then moved to Greenville where she joined the Upstate Vet team. While she enjoys absolutely all aspects of internal medicine, including caring for aging and senior pets with multiple chronic diseases, she particularly enjoys diseases involving the urinary tract. This includes acute and chronic kidney disease, glomerular disease, congenital kidney disease, and stone disease. She is a member of the American Society of Veterinary Nephrology and Urology (ASVNU) and is frequently heard saying: "save the nephrons".
Dr. V. lives with her husband and son, along with a wire-haired Dachshund named Willson, Goldendoodle named Goose, and two orange tabby cats named Doug and Leela. They enjoy traveling and all the outdoor activities South Carolina and the surrounding areas have to offer.
