About Me

Frances Wilkerson, DVM
My mission is to improve the lives of pets through owner education. I truly enjoy helping people learn.

The web has become a wonderful place to disseminate information, and I have used it to create this website and Pet Insurance University - a website committed to helping pet lovers navigate the confusing world of pet insurance.  I hope you find my efforts helpful.

A little more about me...

I have practiced veterinary medicine since 1992. After graduating from the University Of Wisconsin School Of Veterinary Medicine, I attended Cornell University in New York for my postgraduate clinical internship in small animal medicine and surgery.

I have practiced in many settings including: dog and cat medicine, exotic animal medicine, emergency medicine, wildlife medicine, and zoo medicine. This diversity in experience has added to my balance as a veterinarian.

I have a special interest in Exotic Animal Emergency Medicine and I am an American Red Cross Authorized instructor for Pet CPR and First Aid. I have also enrolled as a Veterinary Medical Officer for the National Animal Health Emergency Response Corps (NAHERC). The NAHERC responds to natural disasters and exotic disease outbreaks which effect livestock, poultry, companion animals, and wildlife.
