Dr. O’Hara grew up in Southern California where from an early age he had a love for animals and medicine. He made the decision to combine those two passions and study veterinary medicine. He attended the University of California San Diego where he received a Bachelors of Science degree in Animal Physiology and Neuroscience. He then attended Veterinary School at Oregon State University where he graduated in 2012. After receiving his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine, he has spent the last five years practicing in Texas. Dr. O’Hara is now moving here to Virginia to complete his dream of owning this veterinary practice in our beautiful town. He and his family fell in love with this region of Virginia and the charming town of Abingdon. His family includes his wife, Jenny, his son Finn and their dog Davy.
A few words from Dr. O’Hara:
“I look forward to meeting you and your pets, and continuing the legacy of Abingdon Animal Medical Center that Dr. Smith and Dr. O’Neal have established. We truly are looking forward to making Abingdon our hometown for our growing family.” – Dr. O’Hara
