Wendy Buhrmaster, DVM

Please meet our longtime friend, Dr. Wendy Buhrmaster! Dr. Buhrmaster is a graduate of Michigan State University with her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine in 1985. Whenever any of our doctors are out of the office, she has always been gracious enough to help us out. We know you will appreciate her calm and friendly demeanor, as her love for animals shines through to every pet she sees! She is truly a wonderful addition to the Homestead team and we are excited to have her back! Whenever Dr. Buhrmaster is here, so is her lovable Golden Retriever, Rufus (however, her two horses tend to stay at home!). **Dr. Buhrmaster works at Homestead Animal Hospital on a per diem coverage basis.**
