Meet Wendy Turner, DVM
Dr. Wendy Turner was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, but as
a young adult she moved around the country working for an office supply
company. When her beloved cat died she decided to change careers, and
returned to college to finish her bachelor’s work in biology. She received her
Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Colorado State University in 2002.
Her and her family then moved to New Jersey, where she has spent her entire career.
Her professional interests include feline medicine and surgery, internal medicine, ultrasound, and general surgery. She is very passionate about preventive health care and wellness, as well as feline behavior and providing a cat-centered environment in the home.
Dr. Turner is a member of the American Animal Hospital Association, the American Association of Feline Practitioners, American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine, and the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners. She is a certified Cat Friendly Veterinarian and is also Fear Free certified.
Dr. Turner joined Exclusively Cats Medical Center of Medford in September of 2023, transferring from Pennsauken Animal Hospital (one of our sister hospitals). She finds all of her work to be satisfying, but "being able to develop a relationship with clients and patients so we can collaborate to maximize health and increase quality of life and longevity” means the most to her.
In her free time Dr. Turner loves being active in the community, and volunteer work means a lot to her. She is currently on the Board of Friends of the Arts in Mountain Lakes, NJ, where her son grew up. Dr. Turner has been a long-distance runner for 25 years, participating in 7 full marathons and 40+ half marathons. She loves running, at least most of the time. She enjoys cooking, traveling, reading, writing, ice hockey, art, movies, live shows and comedy.
At home, Dr. Turner has several pets. Her clan includes a pair of brother and sister cats, Merry and Pippin, 2 Abyssinians named Hermes and Leda, and an elderly gentleman dog named Miles who is retired from his job as her running partner. She is excited to meet you and your kitties, and hopes to do so in the near future!
